Reuben Benedict (grain-free)

Two of my most favorite dishes collide in this recipe.  I made this and it is now at the top of my list.  LOVE ~ LOVE!!  The runniness of the poached egg takes the place of the traditional gooey swiss cheese and the caraway seeds more than make up for the fact that you don’t have a piece of rye bread.

Reuben Benedict (grain-free)

Reuben Benedict (grain-free)


  • 1/2 pound corned beef or pastrami
  • 1.5 cups sauerkraut
  • 3 poached eggs
  • spicy hollandaise sauce (recipe below)
  • caraway seeds (for garnish)

Hollandaise sauce:

  • 1/4 cup + 1 tablespoon organic, unsalted butter
  • 2 beaten egg yolks
  • 2 teaspoons water
  • 2 teaspoons freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 1/2 teaspoon Sriracha (or preferred hot sauce)
  • 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard


  1. Place corned beef in a skillet and cook on low until warmed up. Meanwhile, poach your eggs.
  2. Place hollandaise ingredients in the top part of a double boiler (don’t let the boiling water below touch the top pan), slowly adding the butter. Whisk continuously until the butter melts and the sauce thickens.
  3. Divide corned beef into three portions and place on three separate plates. Top each with 1/2 cup of sauerkraut. Next, place a poached egg on each pile of sauerkraut. Pour hollandaise over each stack. Garnish with caraway seeds as desired. Serves three.
  4. Enjoy!

  1. This is awesome. My husband loves reubens, and I am all about breakfast/eggs. I think we'd both love this one!

  2. Guess what we're eating over here in the Chowstalker diner? And my husband just declared it one of his all time favorites! You are a genius!! :-)

  3. OMG!! I'm a big fan of eggs benedict, usually with a bed of brussels (instead of the English muffin), or brocoli. This will be my next benedict for sure!
