Crab Cake Eggs Benedict

Stef and James decided to do a healthier take on Eggs Benedict. By swapping Canadian bacon for crab cakes, they added healthy protein and topped it with a unique avocado Hollandaise Sauce. Get everything you need to make this exclusive recipe developed for The Great American Cookoff.

Ingredients for 4 Crab Cakes:

  • 2 whole-wheat English muffins, halved
  • arugula (or spinach or other greens)
  • olive oil
  • 4 organic eggs (doesn’t include the eggs needed for crab cakes)
  • fresh herbs for garnish
  • 8 oz crab meat
  • ½ jalapeno, minced
  • 1 green onion, chopped
  • 1 organic egg plus 1 egg-white
  • 2 TBS juice from limes
  • 1 TBS dijon mustard
  • ½ cup panko bread crumbs
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • ½ tsp paprika
  • ¼ tsp black pepper

Ingredients for Hollandaise Sauce:

  • 1 avocado (1/2 cup mashed)
  • 2 TBS lime juice (add more to taste)
  • 1 TBS olive oil
  • 3 TBS water
  • ½ tsp salt (more or less to taste)
  • ¼ tsp cayenne (add more if you like a little heat)


Directions to Make Crab Cakes

  1. Preheat griddle to medium-high.
  2. Prepare the crab cakes by chopping the crab meat and jalapeno and green onion.
  3. Then, whisk together eggs, mustard, lime juice, paprika, and pepper.
  4. Then, stir in all else except bread crumbs.
  5. Last, add the bread crumbs. Form into patties. Lightly oil the griddle. Sear the crab cakes on both sides until cooked through.

Directions to Make Hollandaise

Blend everything in a blender. May need to add more water to thin it so it’s a little runnier.

Directions to Assemble Eggs Benedict:

Using egg rings, cook the eggs on a lightly oiled (olive oil) griddle. Slice and toast the English Muffins.
