1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice

1/4 cup olive oil butter spread, melted, divided

4 slices turkey bacon, cooked, cut in half

1 avocado, sliced

Paprika, for garnish

To make the lightened up hollandaise, whisk the mayonnaise, Dijon, and lemon juice. Stir in half of the butter, no salt seasoning and pepper. Set aside.

Arrange the English muffin halves on a separate baking sheet. Bake for 5-6 minutes or until lightly toasted. Brush the remaining butter in each half.

  • Heat 2 to 3 inches of water in large saucepan or deep skillet to boiling. Add vinegar. Adjust heat to a simmer. Break eggs, 1 at a time, into custard cup or saucer.
