Try giving Mom a special treat on Mother's Day by preparing this dish as part of a surprise brunch. This famous New Orleans' egg dish is sure to be a hit.


In a sauté pan, melt butter over medium-high heat. Season artichoke bottoms with salt, pepper and granulated garlic. Sauté artichokes in butter for 3 minutes then set aside. Break each egg into an individual small cup. Poach eggs in an egg poacher (4-5 minutes) or in a sauté pan. To poach in a sauté pan, simmer 1-1 ½ inches water and 1 teaspoon of vinegar. Once simmering, slide each egg into the water by lowering the cup to the surface and gently tipping it. Cook each egg 4 minutes for runny yolk or 5 minutes for firmer yolk, spooning some of the water over the egg during cooking time. Remove cooked eggs from water with a slotted spoon. Let the water drain of for a few seconds.

Assembly of Eggs Sardou:
Place ½ cup warm spinach Madeleine on the bottom of each plate, top with 1 or 2 sautéed artichoke bottoms. Then set 2 poached eggs on top and cover with ½ cup Hollandaise sauce.
