Eggs Benedict Biscuit Cups with Bloody Mary Shooters


I'm always looking for good breakfast recipes to make and since J. loves hollandaise sauce I thought this would be a good recipe. While the biscuits cook you can make the hollandaise sauce and the eggs. It helps if you have someone else in the kitchen to help, but if you're a really good multi-tasked this could be done with just one cook.


Ingredients:
Eggs Benedict Cups
-1 can (16.3 oz) Pillsbury® Grands!® refrigerated buttermilk biscuits
-8 eggs
-2 teaspoons parsley
-Salt and pepper, if desired

Hollandaise Sauce
-3½ oz butter, cut into cubes
-2 egg yolks
-½ tbsp cold water
-½ tbsp lemon juice
-salt and freshly ground white pepper

Bloody Mary Shooters
-1 cup bold and spicy Bloody Mary mix
-1/4 cup vodka


Press each biscuit into a 5-inch round.
Spray a muffin tin with cooking spray, push a biscuit into each one.
Bake 25-30 minutes at 350. 

Over a double boil beat the egg yolks for thirty seconds.
Add the water, lemon juice, salt and pepper.
Add half of the butter, stir for 1-2 minutes.
Remove from heat and add the remaining butter slowly whisking the whole time.

Either poach or cook the eggs over-easy.

To Poach: In a pan, heat 2 to 3 inches water to boiling; reduce heat so water is simmering. Break each egg in a small glass bowl. Holding cup close to water’s surface, carefully slide egg into water. Repeat with the other eggs, be careful not to overcrowd the pan. Cook uncovered 3 to 5 minutes or until whites and yolks are firm, not runny. Remove eggs with slotted spoon; cover with foil to keep warm. Repeat with remaining 4 eggs.

Over-easy: Heat oil in a skillet, crack the eggs into the oil, cook the eggs until the whites firm up and the yolk is still running, flipping once.

Pour an egg into each biscuit cup, season with salt and pepper, then top with hollandaise. 

Serve with the bloody Mary's. 
I had never had a bloody Mary before and I will probably never have one again, I did not like those at all. The eggs benedict cups were delicious though, we each at two, they were pretty filling.
