Amy- Eggs Beauregard is an old Southern recipe that is similar to eggs Benedict. Instead of using an English muffin, Canadian ham and a Hollandaise sauce you use a biscuit, sausage patty and a cream sauce. This is the sister’s take on this old southern dish.
What you will need for eggs Beauregard-
½ cup celery, diced
½ small onion, diced
½ cup red or green bell pepper, diced
½ stick butter
3 tablespoons flour
1 pint half and half
Couple of dashes hot sauce
1 cup gruyere cheese, grated (optional)
¼ cup spring onion with tops, chopped
Cajun seasoning, to taste
Sausage patties and Hot buttered biscuits
Go on and break out your skillet. Put your butter in and let it melt over medium heat. Next add your onion, celery and red pepper and sauté until your veggies are tender. Season your veggie with a little Cajun seasoning. Sprinkle your flour over the veggies and give it a good stir and cook, stirring constantly for about 5 minutes. Spread vegetables evenly in the skillet. Slowly add your cream while stirring. Season up this goodness with a little salt, pepper and hot sauce. Reduce your heat to simmer and cook for an additional 5 minutes. Increase your heat to medium and let sauce get hot. Put 1 cracked egg at a time in cream (couple of inches apart). Put lid on top and poach eggs in cream until they reach desired doneness. Sprinkle with cheese and spring onions. Cover and allow cheese to melt. Season eggs with the Cajun seasoning. Slice buttered biscuit, top with sausage, egg and cream sauce. Garnish with fresh parsley.
