4 egg yolks
¾ carton 35% whipping cream

1 tsp powdered sugar
¼ carton 35% whipping cream

Prep:

  4. Bake for 20-30 minutes until the bread has browned and sugar has melted and caramelized
  5. While baking, whip powdered sugar and cream in a cold bowl (using a cold bowl and cold cream helps whipping)
    Whip until the cream has thickened and white peaks are created.
  6. Once baking is finished, allow the french toast to rest for a few minutes then plate and serve with a big dollop of whipped cream.

2. Sunny and Haze Benny

Hollandaise Sauce Ingredients:
4 egg yolks
Juice of ½ lemon
¼ cup butter
¼ cup infused butter 200mg of Shatter

Other Ingredients:
Dash of Tabasco
Chives
Cayenne pepper
2 eggs
1tbsp white vinegar
Bacon (your choice sliced, slab, back)
English muffin

  3. Move bowl onto a small pot with simmering water and continue to whisk.
  4. Add the butter slowly in a steady stream while continuing to whisk.

    7.Fry bacon to desired doneness/crispiness
  7. In the meantime toast muffin

Instructions to Poach Eggs

  1. In boiling water add vinegar (this helps keep the egg together when poaching)
  2. Carefully drop eggs into water one at a time and let poach for 2-3 minutes
  3. Using a slotted spoon carefully remove eggs from water (pole to check doneness) and place on a towel to allow excess water to dry off

Putting this breakfast together

  1. Take English muffin and butter (regular or infused) place bacon on top then the poached egg.
  2. Give your hollandaise a whisk as it should have thickened while resting, add a dash of Tabasco and a dash of lemon juice and whisk in.
  3. Take a nice big large scoop of the hollandaise sauce and cover your egg.
    Finish with chives and some Cayenne
