Oh my word!! So bright, so creamy, so tasty! SO GOOD!
Step One: Poach Eggs
- I prefer to poach my eggs in the oven, as it is easy to make a large batch of perfectly poached eggs this way.
- If you prefer traditional poached eggs, check out this tutorial for stove-top poached eggs.
Step Two: Toast English Muffins
- While the eggs are poaching, lightly toast the English Muffins in the oven. You can toast your muffins in the toaster as well, but the oven is a fast way to toast a bunch at a time!
Step Three: Prepare the Avocado Hollandaise
- In a blender or food processor, process the avocados, Greek yogurt, cilantro, salt, and zest and juice of the lime until smooth.
Step Four: Assemble
- Mix together the canned or homemade refried beans with chili powder and cumin powder.
- Spread the refried beans mixture on each of the English Muffin halves.
- Return to the oven to warm the bean mixture, about 5 minutes.
- Top each English muffin half with a poached egg.
- Drizzle with the avocado hollandaise, and sprinkle with feta cheese and cilantro.
- Serve immediately.
