Snow Benny

When I hear snow day, I immediately think of college.  Snow days were the best in college.  We'd order tons of greasy comfort food, stock up on 30 racks, throw on sweats, watch movies, and have the best parties ever.  It was so much fun.

Now, snow days mean working from home with your computer on your lap, dialing into conference calls with spotty iphone service, and scavenging the house for something to compile into an actual meal.

Just as I was about to heat up some soup, I had a brilliant idea!  I realized I had some leftover potato latkes from dinner at my moms house on Saturday night and decided they would be the perfect base to a delicious eggs benedict.  

Snowy Eggs Benny

2 eggs
2 potato latkes
Sprinkle of mozzarella cheese
3 Tablespoons hummus
1 Tablespoon yellow or dijon mustard
Hot sauce
a few squirts of lemon juice
salt & pepper

Make "hollandaise": Combine hummus, mustard, hot sauce, salt, pepper, and lemon juice to taste and set aside

Heat latkes in toaster or oven until warmed through

On stove, fill sautee pan with water until boiling.  Reduce heat, add a dash of white wine vinegar, and add eggs. Cover for 3 minutes.

Top latkes with eggs.  Drizzle with "hollandaise" and cheese

Grab a fork and devour.  YUM!


  1. Thanks for posting this. I was looking for a good breakfast recipe and I think I found it.

    I'm a bit confused however. Your recipe does not call for raw full chicken thighs, yet your picture shows you've sprinkled them over the eggs. Could you please clarify?


  2. Dear Georgen,
    I'm sorry for confusing you. Those are not raw chicken thighs, but hollandaise sauce. Additionally, you look like a raw chicken thigh. That is all.


  3. Bites -

    Did you dance with the chicken before making it part of your dish?

    Ready to cook,
