How to make Eggs Paco

We enjoy a little fancy breakfast on Sundays. So instead of the usual fried egg, bacon, grits etc., we do some kind’a version of Eggs Benedict. However since we often don’t use Canadian bacon or English muffins, we use the name of a different pope than Pope Benedict, preferring the more recent Pope Francis, or “Paco”. So I’m going to share a recipe for “Eggs Paco.” 

First make some fair sized sourdough biscuits. Mix starter, and flour, with baking powder, salt, sugar and shortening. Flatten it out to ½ inch thick, and cut biscuits three inches in diameter.cook in a 400 degree oven for fifteen minutes. Next, before frying the egg, fry up a crabcake for each person.
To make quick Hollandaise, put three egg yolks in the blender with a tablespoon of lemon juice, a quarter teaspoon of salt, and a dash of cayenne pepper (or chili powder) and drizzle in a half cup of melted butter while blending on high for about five seconds.
Finally blindfold the eggs (Fry in a skillet in oil, covered, and about a tablespoon of water before you cover) that makes them sort of like poached only easier to do.
Put a half biscuit down, slide a crabcake on it, top that with a blindfolded egg and pour hollandaise sauce over it. Eggs Paco! Buen provecho!
