Looking for a new brunch idea? Look no further than this unique twist on the classic eggs benedict. Poached eggs offer satisfying richness to polenta cakes and crab!

Serves: 4
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 10 minutes


  • Nonstick cooking spray
  • 8 ounces (1/2 of an organic refrigerated polenta roll), cut into 4 slices
  • 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
  • 6 ounces cooked jumbo lump crab meat
  • 2 teaspoons fresh lemon juice
  • 2 tablespoons distilled white vinegar
  • 4 large organic eggs
  • Hot sauce, for serving (optional)


1. Preheat oven to 200 degrees F. Heat large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Lightly spray with cooking spray, then add polenta slices. Cook 6 to 8 minutes or until golden brown on both sides; turning occasionally. Transfer polenta cakes to rimmed baking pan and transfer to oven to keep warm.

2. Return skillet to stove; reduce heat to medium. Add olive oil and crab; cook 3 to 4 minutes or until warmed through. Stir in lemon juice; keep warm.

3. Meanwhile, fill large high-sided skillet with water. Heat to a slow boil (about 190 degrees F). Add vinegar to water. One at a time, crack eggs into small ramekin and use ramekin to slowly slide eggs into water. Cook 4 minutes or until whites are set and yolks are still soft. Using a slotted spoon, remove eggs from water and blot on paper towel-lined plate.

4. To serve, divide polenta cakes between 4 plates. Divide crab over polenta cakes and place eggs on top. Serve immediately, with hot sauce, if desired.
