Sweet tomato with buttered spinach, tender poached eggs and delicious Hollandaise sauce make distinctive combination of flavor.

How to Make Low Carb Eggs Benedict Tomato and Spinach

Cook the Spinach

In a medium frying pan, melt 1 tsp of butter. Add the spinach and cook until wilted, stirring occasionally. Season with salt and pepper. Set aside.

Cook spinach in butter

Poach the Egg

Bring water to a boil in a small pot. Crack the egg into a poachpod and place it over the boiling water. Cook until the egg is set.

Making poached egg

Prepare the Hollandaise Sauce

In a heat-safe bowl, whisk the egg yolk, mustard, lemon juice, and a pinch of salt.

Place the bowl over very low heat and continue whisking until the mixture starts to thicken.

Slowly pour in the melted butter (2 tbsp) while whisking continuously until the sauce thickens. Remove from heat and set aside.

Making Hollandaise sauce


On a serving plate, place the tomato slice, followed by the cooked spinach. Top with the poached egg and drizzle with the hollandaise sauce. Garnish with chopped chives, if desired, and serve immediately.

Is muffin keto friendly?

No, traditional muffins are not keto-friendly as they are made with high-carb ingredients like flour and sugar. However, there are keto-friendly muffin recipes that use low-carb ingredients such as almond flour or coconut flour and sugar substitutes like erythritol or stevia. You can try my Classic Plain Keto Muffins recipe or this 1-Minute Microwave Muffins in a Mug.

What can I use instead of English muffin for eggs Benedict?

You can replace the English muffin in eggs Benedict with a slice of avocado or tomato, a bed of sautéed spinach, or a keto-friendly almond or coconut flour biscuit. If you have time, make your own keto muffin.

How many carbs in eggs benedict without bread or muffin?

Eggs Benedict without bread primarily consists of poached eggs, hollandaise sauce, and typically a protein like ham or smoked salmon. Without the bread, a serving of Eggs Benedict contains approximately 1-3 grams of carbs, mainly from the egg and the ingredients in the hollandaise sauce. However, exact carb counts can vary based on specific recipe ingredients and portion sizes.
