Sweet Potato Eggs Benedict


1 large sweet potato, grated
2 T salt
1 small onion, grated
1 small bunch, chives, minced
2 eggs, beaten
1/4 c four
4 T malt vinegar
6 eggs
6 large rapini leaves (could use spinach or kale)
smoked ham, sliced thin
1 avocado
1/4 C mayo
1 t Dijon mustard
3 T olive oil


Dissolve salt in enough warm water to just cover grated potato and set aside for 15 minutes.

Drain potatoes and squeeze out excess water.

Squeeze grated onion to remove as much juice as possible, then mix with potato.

Combine egg, flour and chives with potato mixture.

Form into 6 balls then squash flat in a pan with a little olive oil and fry until brown on both sides and cooked through.

Bring 3 cups of water to a simmer, add vinegar, then poach the eggs.

Blanch leaves in salted water.

Blend avocado, mayo, mustard, olive oil and enough water to make a smooth paste.

To assemble place, one blanched leaf on each potato cake, then the egg, ham and top with avocado sauce
