Keto Smoked Salmon Eggs Benedict with Hollandaise
Yield: 6 Servings Prep time: 2 minute Total time: 15 minute
Eggs | 3
Protein Powder | 1/4 Cup (You may use whey protein powder, egg white protein powder, or a combination of almond flour and coconut flour. Egg white protein powder seems to work well, Jay Robb offers several versions of it)
Onion Powder| 1/2 tsp
Preheat the oven to 325 F or 170 C. Separate the eggs and reserve the yolks. Beat the whites (ideally in a hands free stand mixer) for 5-6 minutes until very stiff peaks. Slowly add the protein powder about a tablespoon at a time while gently mixing. Add the onion powder. Stir the egg yolks with a fork so that they are broken up. Remove from mixer and using a spatula, fold the egg yolks into the mixture, folding a few times until combined. Spray a bread loaf tin with coconut oil spray and pour the mixture into it. Bake for about 30 minutes.
