2 cups coarsely mashed Yukon Gold potatoes
1 cup broccoli florets, coarsely chopped
1 cup cauliflower florets, coarsely chopped
1 medium shallot, thinly sliced
2 cloves garlic, minced
1/2 cup + 2 tablespoons Oro Bailen Picual Olive Oil for sauteing & frying
1/3 cup cherve (fresh goat cheese) creme fraiche, or sour cream
1/3 cup freshly grated Pecorino Romano
2 large eggs beaten
2 cups panko bread crumbs
fresh ground pepper
mixed baby greens (optional)
3 large room temperature egg yolks
1 tablespoon freshly squeezed lemon juice
1 tablespoon Sicilian Lemon White Balsamic
1/2 cup unsalted butter
1/2 cup Tuscan Herb Olive Oil
1 teaspoon kosher salt
freshly cracked pepper (optional)
For the Hollandaise Sauce:
Heat the butter and Tuscan Herb Infused Olive Oil in a small sauce pan until very warm, about 180 degrees.
In the bowl of a food processor or in the jar of a blender, add the vinegar, lemon juice, salt, pepper, and egg yolks.
Process briefly to blend everything. With the motor running, slowly drizzle in warmed olive oil and butter.
For the Veggie Croquettes:
In a saute pan set over medium-high heat, add two tablespoons of Oro Bailen Picual Olive Oil.
Add the shallots, broccoli, and cauliflower and saute until golden brown, and slightly caramelized (about 20 minutes) add the garlic at the last minute.
Add the coarsely mashed potatoes to a large bowl and add the goat cheese, pepper and salt.
Add the caramelized veggie mixture to the potatoes and mix gently, keeping the veggies in tact as much as possible.
Add the beaten egg to wide flat container or bowl, and add the Panko bread crumbs to another bowl.
Season the egg with a little salt.
Once the potato mixture has cooled enough to handle, form six patties, about 4" wide and 1" thick.
Dip each patty in to the seasoned egg, and then in to the Panko bread crumbs making sure to gently press the crumbs on to the patty.
Set the patties on to a lined baking sheet and set aside.
Heat 1/2" of Oro Bailen Picual in a wide heavy saute pan over medium-high heat until it reaches 325 on a deep fry thermometer.
Pan fry the patties until golden brown on both sides - set aside on a lined baking sheet.
Poach 6 large eggs
To assemble, arrange the mixed baby greens on the plate.
Top with the warm veggie patty.
Set a poached egg atop the veggie patty and ladle the Hollandaise over the top.
