Disney Cruise Recipes
These Disney Cruise Recipes bring the Magic and Wonder of Disney cruise food to your home. Whether it is Tiana’s famous beignets or a delicious Chocolate Souffle from Palo, there is something for everyone.
Palo Eggs Benedict
This delicious Eggs Benedict is served at Palo Brunch on all the Disney Cruise Ships.
There are 3 different versions available on the Palo Brunch Menu. The traditional Eggs Benedict with Ham, Eggs on Toasted Muffin with Smoked Salmon and Hollandaise, and Eggs Florentine with Spinach and Hollandaise.
Whichever version of Eggs Benedict you pick, be sure to follow the recipe below. It really is worth making your own Hollandaise and if you have never poached an egg before, you will be surprised by how simple and satisfying it is.
- 1 1/2 cups white wine vinegar
- 5 peppercorns
- 1 shallot, finely sliced
- 1 sprig fresh tarragon
- 3 large free-range egg yolks
- 1 cup melted and skimmed (clarified) unsalted butter, warm
- 1/2 lemon, juiced
- Salt and freshly ground black pepper
- 1/4 cup white wine vinegar
- 10 eggs
Toasted English Muffins with Smoked Salmon:
- 5 English muffins, split
- 5 ounces salted butter, softened
- 15 ounces sliced Scottish smoked salmon
- 2 ounces American caviar
Toasted English Muffins with Ham:
- 5 English muffins, split
- 5 ounces salted butter, softened
- 15 oz thinly sliced, cooked rosemary ham
- ½ bunch chives, finely sliced
- To make the Hollandaise Sauce: Combine the white wine vinegar, peppercorns, sliced shallots and tarragon in a saucepan. Bring to the boil and reduce by half. Strain through a sieve and reserve the liquid.
- biol a large pot of water, then lower and keep at a simmer. Place the egg yolks in a bowl that will fit over the pot of simmering water but not touch the water. Add 1 tablespoon of the reduced vinegar to the eggs and place the bowl on top of the pot, making sure the water does not touch the bottom of the bowl. Beat the eggs with a balloon whisk, occasionally removing the bowl from the heat so the mixture does not become scrambled, until the eggs thicken and double in size.
- Remove the bowl from the pot, then whisk a small ladle of the warm clarified butter into the eggs. Continue to gradually add the butter while whisking. If the sauce becomes too thick, add a small amount of warm water. Whisk in the lemon juice and season with salt and pepper. Keep warm.
- For the poached eggs: Mix the white wine vinegar, some salt and 5 cups water in a pan, bring to the boil and then bring down to a simmer. To poach the eggs, crack each egg into an individual small bowl. Use a whisk to gently stir the simmering poaching liquid in a counter-clockwise direction, and pour each egg into the water in the same direction the water is moving. Gently simmer for 1 minute. Remove with a strainer, drain and place onto a garnished English muffin half. (If you are keeping the eggs for later, remove them from the water with a strainer and place immediately in salted ice water. Reheat them in the same cooking water.
- For the toasted English muffins: Meanwhile, place the English muffin halves into a toaster and toast until golden brown. While the muffins are still warm, spread the softened butter onto the open toasted side of each. Layer 1 1/2 ounces of the sliced salmon or ham on each buttered muffin half.
- Spoon 2 tablespoons of the hollandaise sauce over each poached egg. Garnish with 1/2 teaspoon of the caviar (for salmon) or chives (for ham).
Mickey Waffles Recipe
These Mickey Waffles are also on the Palo Brunch Menu. What you almost don’t appreciate from this picture is just how huge that Mickey Waffle is!
You don’t need to make your Mickey Waffle quite as large or as fancy as this. The presentation is wonderful here, with the pots of whipped cream, mixed berries, and strawberry compote.
However, you can just as easily use this Mickey Waffles Copycat Recipe to quickly make breakfast for the family. Just add maple syrup and you can guarantee everyone will be asking for a second serving.
This Mickey Mouse Waffle Maker is good value and produces consistently good results. However, if you can spend a little more this Mickey Mouse Double Flip Waffle Maker will allow you to make authentic Mickey waffles 6 at a time.
Mickey Waffle Ingredients
- 2 cups all-purpose flour
- 3/4 cup granulated sugar
- 3 teaspoons baking powder
- 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
- 2 large eggs with whites and yolks separated
