Eggs Florentine Over Cornmeal Waffles

Eggs Florentine Over Cornmeal Waffles
Makes: 4  servings


  • 2 tablespoons  reduced-fat mayonnaise
  • 1 1/2 cups  plus 1/3 cup buttermilk
  • 4 teaspoons  freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon  cornstarch
  • Dash white or black pepper
  • 1 tablespoon  chilled butter, cubed
  • 3/4 cup  cup whole-wheat pastry flour
  • 3/4 cup  all-purpose flour
  • 2 tablespoons  cornmeal
  • 1 tablespoon  ground flaxseed
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons  baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon  baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon  salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon  black pepper
  • 9 large eggs
  • 1 tablespoon  olive oil
  • 1/2 tablespoon  white vinegar
  • 10 ounces  baby spinach
  • 1 tablespoon  water
  • Dash paprika (optional)


1. Preheat the oven to 225 degrees . Whisk together mayonnaise, 1/3 cup buttermilk, lemon juice, cornstarch and white or black pepper in a small saucepan; simmer, whisking, until thickened and slightly frothy, 2 to 3 minutes. Add butter and whisk 1 minute more; keep hollandaise sauce warm over a very low flame.

2. In a medium bowl, whisk together flours, cornmeal, flaxseed, baking powder, baking soda, 1/4 teaspoon salt and 1/2 teaspoon black pepper. In a separate medium bowl, whisk together remaining buttermilk, 5 eggs and oil. Add dry ingredients to egg mixture and whisk until just combined.

3. Heat a waffle iron and ladle batter into center, cooking waffles until golden and crisp on the edges. Transfer to a plate, cover with foil and place in oven to keep warm.

4. Bring 4 inches of water to a boil in a large deep saucepan. Add vinegar and reduce heat to a vigorous simmer. Crack remaining eggs into 4 small ramekins and gently slip them into pan one at a time. Cook until whites are opaque but yolks are still runny, 2 to 3 minutes. Meanwhile, place spinach and water in a large bowl and microwave until wilted, about 1 minute. Season with remaining salt and black pepper.

5. Top each waffle with an equal amount of spinach and a poached egg; drizzle with hollandaise sauce and sprinkle with paprika if desired.
