Paleo Eggs Benedict

Ingredients for Main Dish

8 eggs (4 poached eggs, plus 4 egg yolks to make the sauce)

2 raw sweet potatoes, peeled and diced into ½” cubes

1 red onion

1 garlic clove

4 pre-cooked sausage links, sliced lengthwise

2 avocados

1 cup arugula

Olive oil

Salt and pepper



Ingredients for Hollandaise Sauce

4 egg yolks

1 Tbsp lemon juice

¼ teaspoon salt

1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper

½ cup ghee (warmed)



1. Preheat oven to 425° F.

2. Poach 4 of the eggs and set aside. If they need to be rewarmed before serving, simply put back in the pan of hot water for a minute or two.

3. Peel the raw sweet potatoes and chop into bite-sized pieces.

4. Cut red onion into small wedges.

5. Mince or press 1 clove of garlic.

6. Split 4 links of pre-cooked sausage lengthwise.

7. Toss the potatoes, onion, garlic, and sausage together with 1-2 Tbsp of olive oil to coat.

8. Spread out on a parchment paper-lined baking sheet and season with salt and pepper. Sprinkle with any other herbs or seasonings of your choice.

9. Place in oven for about 20-30 minutes, or until potatoes are tender.

10. While potato mixture is baking, whisk together egg yolks, lemon juice, salt, and cayenne until slightly thickened.

11. Place mixture in a blender or food processor. Blend while slowly drizzling in the warmed ghee. Taste, and add more seasoning if needed.

12. On each serving plate, slice ¼ avocado off to the side and top with a small amount of arugula.

13. To serve, place sweet potato mixture on a plate. Criss-cross a split sausage link on top. Place poached egg on top of the sausage. Dribble warm hollandaise sauce over everything and sprinkle with fresh chopped chives.

14. Enjoy!

Patient Testimonials

Dr Don Sharnowski is a doctor who is above and beyond all other doctors! Probably his most outstanding quality is that he LISTENS to what his patients say. He is willing to explain things to his patients in terms they can understand. Dr Don treats his patients with wisdom, understanding, gentleness, care, encouragement and he is willing to "go the extra mile" to give his patients the proper treatment they need. He does not treat patients like they were on an assembly line or like he is rushing them out the door. Dr Don has fixed many of the problems I had at my first visit, one of which I had endured for 3 years. Dr Don was able to fix that problem in 2 weeks when others had not. Dr Don has also helped me loose 40 lbs so far. My total recovery is still an ongoing process, but should be a cinch with Dr Don's expert help! Thank you, Dr Don! You are an awesome answer to prayers!

Super Awesome Doctor in Overland Park, Kansas!! He really knows his stuff love his Holistic approach. Wish I lived closer so I could see him on the regular, at least we can chat on the regular! Very informative in all aspects of health! Five years ago this man took our health and turned it around 360 degrees. My son got ear infections very often. Both my boys have respiratory issues. My husband asthma and overweight. Myself aches and pains, specifically on my left side and joints. Well needless to say no more ear infections respiratory not nearly as often my husband is 80lbs less and never uses his inhaler . My sons ear infections...What ear infections...They are no longer! Thanks Dr. Don for all you do and have done!!

Lots of Love from The Stevens

Dr Don Sharnowski is truly an amazing Doctor. He listens to his patients and treats in a very complete way. He is very knowledgeable because he never stops learning. He is a great communicator and will help you learn better ways to be healthy if you will actually do what he teaches.

Don (Dr Sharnowski) is truly one of a kind. He is warm, inviting and incredibly generous with his time, but also really knowledgeable about the body and everything within. You won't find crystal balls here. You'll find a super nice guy in sneakers who also sells farm fresh eggs at the counter. I went in expecting to get adjusted (and was scared, because I'd never seen a chiro before). Instead, what I experienced was someone who actually sat down and listened to my history, connected the dots between several ailments (instead of jumping to prescribe one drug apiece to treat each one), and explained things that no one had ever taken the time to do. I was there about my back specifically, but we talked about my whole health. Instead of just prescribing an anti inflammatory (which is what my other doc did), he explained why we get inflammation in our bodies, and how to help reduce it with what we eat. I've also been on thyroid medication for over 10 years, and he actually explained what the thyroid is, and what the drug I take is, and what it does. But not in a defensive or overly crunchy way. He just openly explained in a way that I could understand it. I highly recommend Don to anyone with a body who wants to feel better. His approach is approachably holistic. Just common sense, whole body-centered treatment.
