"Please Don't Tell My Rabbi" Eggs Benedict
- 1 large russet potato, grated, squeezed to drain excess liquid
- 1/2 white onion, grated
- 1 egg, lightly beaten
- 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- Kosher salt and fresh cracked pepper
- Vegetable oil
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- 8 ounces fresh chorizo
- 1 tablespoon butter
- 3 eggs
- BBQ sauce, for serving
Preheat the oven to 300 degrees F.
In a heavy-bottomed shallow pot, heat enough vegetable oil to fill the pot one-quarter from the bottom. Once the oil is hot, drop in tablespoon amounts of the potato mixture and flatten with a spatula. Cook until golden brown, about 3 minutes per side. Remove from the oil and season again if necessary. Keep warm.
In an oven-safe nonstick saute pan over medium heat, add the olive oil and chorizo. Using a wooden spoon, break the chorizo up and cook until fully cooked through. Remove the chorizo to a bowl. Place the pan back over the heat, add the butter and melt. Cracks the eggs in the hot buttered pan and then transfer the pan to the oven. Bake until the whites are firm. Season with salt and pepper.
To assemble, layer first the latke, then top with some chorizo, followed by 1 fried egg. Then finish with your favorite BBQ sauce. Serve immediately!
