Plaza Benedict and Café Potatoes

Serves: 4

Step 1: Hollandaise

4 oz pasteurized egg yolk (approx. 7- 8 egg yolks)

½ lb salted butter

1 tbs lemon juice

1 tbs sriracha (amount depends on your taste preference)


Melt butter

Put egg yolks into food processor or blender

Add in lemon juice and sriracha and blend until yolks lighten in color  

Slowly stream hot butter into running blender

Taste and check seasoning

Step 2: Poach Egg


White Vinegar



Use a sauce pot, or if available, a deep saute or frying pan works best. 

Fill with 3-4 inches of water

Bring the water and 1/4 cup of vinegar up to a boil on medium high heat

Crack 4 eggs in individual cups before adding to water

Using a large slotted spoon, carefully stir the water in a circle until you get a “tornado” 

At this point quickly drop in each egg individually  

Turn the temperature down to medium, as a boil will break up the eggs

Cook for 3-4 minutes

Remove eggs from the water and place on plate until ready to put the benedicts together

Step 3: Create Spice Blend

1tsp dry ground thyme

1tsp dry ground rosemary

1tsp garlic powder

1tsp onion powder

1tsp guajillo chili powder (you can substitute with a pinch of cayenne powder)

1tsp ground black pepper

1tbs iodized salt


Mix all together

Step 4: Café Potatoes

1 lb Yukon Gold Potatoes, cut into 1-1.5 inch chunks

1 sprig rosemary

2 sprigs thyme

3 cloves garlic

1 tbs salt


Put everything in sauce pot and cover with water

Cook on medium heat until boiling

Check potatoes – should be firm but not raw and crunchy

Drain and cool

Remove garlic cloves and herb sprigs

Step 5: The Veggie Mix

1 small yellow onion, diced

1 red bell pepper, diced

1 sprig rosemary

2 sprig thyme

2 cloves garlic

2tbs olive oil


Salt and pepper to taste

Saute peppers and onions in oil with herb sprigs and garlic on medium heat

Stir frequently – should be soft, but not dark

Season to taste

Remove garlic and herb sprigs

Step 6: Put It All Together!

In a saute pan on medium high heat

Heat oil and butter until butter starts to brown

Add potatoes, flipping occasionally until browned

Add seasoning to taste

Add veggie mix and toss together until everything is hot

Serve and enjoy!
