Melt the butter in a pot until it's hot (not Burnt)

Add the egg yolks, lemon juice, lemon zest, mustard, and salt into a high-powered blender and blend for 5 seconds until combined. With the blender running on medium high, slowly stream in the hot butter into the

Paleo Eggs Benny:

Pre heat oven to 375F

Coat the sweet potato in olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Place on a sheet pan and bake in the oven for about 20 min or until cooked.

While the sweet potato is cooking bring a pot of water to a bare simmer (about 185 F) and add the vinegar. Give the water bath a clockwise swirl to make a little vortex and crack your eggs one at a time to the water. Cook to desired doneness (4 min for runny eggs).

Remove your sweet potato when its finished cooking and place 2 pieces on a plate. Top with 2 oz smoked salmon on each potato slice, followed by 3 stems of asparagus. Carefully remove your eggs and place one on each potato slice. Pour over hollandaise and enjoy!
