The best Mother's Day Brunch (or any brunch!) includes Eggs Benedict with homemade Hollondaise sauce. Everyday Good Thinking | @hamiltonbeach

I love Eggs Benedict and order it at brunch all the time. I never, ever made it at home. To me, it was stuffy and labor intensive. Not to mention I had to poach eggs, which is the equivalent of retaking the SAT’s (they were hard for me). And whisking up a Hollandaise Sauce can be on the complicated side. Two products have made this seemingly elaborate brunch staple easy, easy, easy. Our new Egg Cooker will poach eggs to perfection while you toast the english muffins. No boiling water, adding vinegar, swirling or stirring needed. As for the sauce, our Single Serve Blender allows you to put in all the ingredients, pulse a few times and have the creamy, buttery decadence that IS Hollandaise sauce. We served it with fruit-infused sparkling water (made, of course, with our handheld SodaStation™) and roasted asparagus, which is just as easy to prepare as the Eggs Benedict. Trust me, try it at home (maybe for Mother’s Day?) and you will be amazed by the simplicity.

We used the Hamilton Beach Egg Cooker to perfectly poach the eggs. The Egg Cooker also prepares soft, medium or hard-boiled eggs. Along with making smoothies to go, the SingleServe Blender is perfect for mixing sauces or dressings. The Hollandaise sauce in this recipe can be drizzled over the eggs right from the jar.

Sweet and Spicy Collard Greens from Everyday Good Thinking, the official blog of @HamiltonBeach #slowcooker

Collard greens, revered for their slightly bitter taste and substantially thick leaves, make a delicious (and often required) side dish in a comforting southern meal. We love this sweet and spicy rendition because it adds a little grown-up kick to otherwise ordinary greens. The ham hock simmers in the slow cooker with the collards and onions, so you end up with well-rounded flavors perfect for serving with ribs, steak, pork or chicken (and let’s not forget the cornbread).

 


Sweet and Spicy Collard Greens
SERVES: 6

Ingredients
1 Tablespoon vegetable oil
1 medium onion, chopped
2 packages (16-oz. each) collard greens, rinsed and trimmed
1 smoked pork hock (about 1/2 lb.)
1 can (14.5 oz.) chicken broth
3 Tablespoons packed dark brown sugar
2 garlic cloves, minced
1 1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
Hot pepper sauce and freshly ground black pepper
Instructions
Heat oil in a Dutch oven over medium-high heat for 2 to 3 minutes. Add onion and cook 3 minutes, stirring occasionally.
Reduce heat to low and add collards, a handful at a time, stirring until greens begin to wilt (about 10 minutes). Add 1/4 cup water to the pot after the first bag of greens to help wilt the greens faster.
Place pork hock in bottom of slow cooker crock and add mixture from Dutch oven. Top with wilted collard green mixture.
Combine broth, brown sugar, garlic, salt, and crushed red pepper in medium bowl; pour over collard greens.
Cover and cook on HIGH 3 to 3 1/2 hours until collards are tender.
Pull meat from ham hock, add to greens and serve with hot pepper sauce, freshly ground black pepper and cornbread.
Notes
If you have a slow cooker with stove-top safe cookware, substitute the cookware for the Dutch oven in the directions above. After sautéing, place cookware in base, cover and cook as directed in recipe.

Baked Ham with Honey Glaze from Everyday Good Thinking, the official blog of @HamiltonBeach

The star of the Christmas dinner table varies depending on geographic location. When I spent the holidays with a friend from New York, lamb was served as the centerpiece. When I went to visit a friend from North Carolina, the star was a big, beautiful baked ham. Because Hamilton Beach headquarters resides in the South, we decided to share our favorite baked ham recipe. This is a holiday favorite sure to please everyone at your table, no matter on which side of the Mason-Dixon line you reside.

Baked Ham with Honey Glaze from Everyday Good Thinking, the official blog of @HamiltonBeach

Baked Hams are best bought extra-large because there are so many uses for the leftovers. They can be reheated later or used at room temperature for ham biscuits (especially delicious for breakfast), ham and cheese sandwiches, breakfast sandwiches made with the Breakfast Sandwich Maker, or as the classic ham and eggs breakfast. The bone can be saved for soup or stock, or frozen to be used at a later time. Leave a comment and tell us your favorite way to use leftover ham.

Baked Ham Honey Glaze
SERVES: 15

Bake your holiday ham in a Hamilton Beach Roaster Oven and create extra room in your main oven for the sides and accompaniments.
Ingredients
15 pound fully cooked smoked ham
2 cups water
1/2 cup honey
1/2 cup orange juice
1 cup brown sugar, packed
Whole cloves
Instructions
Remove rack from roaster oven. Pour 2 cups of water into the insert pan, put the roaster cover on and preheat roaster oven to 325°F.
Trim thick part of fat off of ham down to 1/4-inch. Score remaining layer of fat into diamond design; this will help hold the glaze. Insert whole cloves into each diamond.
Place ham on rack then place in roaster and cover. Bake for 1 hour.
While ham is cooking, combine remaining ingredients to make glaze.
Remove cover and spoon half of glaze over ham. Replace cover and bake 1 more hour.
Remove cover and spoon remaining glaze over ham. Replace cover. Bake for 10 minutes to set glaze. Internal temperature of ham should be at least 140°F.

Recipes from the Hamilton Beach Test Kitchen

 



Easy Weekday Breakfast

It’s seven o’clock on Monday morning. The buses are picking up kids for school and the cars are leaving the driveways. The remaining families are rushing around trying to find homework sheets, briefcases, favorite pairs of shoes, travel coffee mugs, or lunch bags. At your house, there might be yelling. There might be an alarm going off that is supposed to remind you to leave on time. There might be a dog following at your heels until the second you close the door and head to work. On a hectic morning like this, you are lucky if there is food on the table. Wait, you didn’t forget about breakfast, right?

Breakfast: the most important meal of the day, according to mom’s everywhere. The thing is, a lot of moms (and most people without children) have a hard time getting a decent breakfast before they have to run out the door to start their day. This is why we at Everyday Good Thinking decided to lend you a hand by figuring out a quick breakfast menu that should please your whole family. 

English muffin sandwiches with egg, ham, and cheese are a hearty start to the morning and the best part is that you can always customize them to your preference. If you are trying to eat healthily or you just prefer the fresh taste of a crisp vegetable, you can add some spinach or a slice of tomato. If you want extra cheese, you can do that, too. You can also sub out ingredients to meet various dietary needs, like using egg whites or a low-sodium meat substitute. Plus, it saves you from stopping at the coffee shop or drive-through, which you know just costs more money. Here is one of our favorite classic breakfast sandwiches that we make on our way out the door, and we think you’ll love it, too.
