Backyard BBQ Battle, Episode 7, Breakfast

This was one of my favorite episodes.  Last year we talked about having a breakfast episode and it never really came together.  We filmed this after a few days of rest so it was our first episode coming back from a shooting break.

I tried to make a sandwich that would make my friends at Radical Gardens proud.  I wanted an epic sandwich that was loaded with meat and that was full of flavor.  I wanted the kind of sandwich you could have for dinner and not feel cheated.  I think I did pretty good.

People are afraid of making hollandaise sauce.  This easy blender version is, in my opinion, super easy and super fast to make.

Enjoy the recipes.

Episode 7 - Breakfast episode

1.      Heat butter till melted. 

2.      In a blender, blend egg yolk, hot sauce, lemon juice, Dijon for about 15 seconds.  Set blender on high and slowly start adding the melted butter in a heavy stream.  It should thicken immediately.  Keep sauce in a pitcher of hot water till serving.
