Southwest Eggs Benedict

I’ve mentioned loving breakfast for dinner several times before. While I’m all for keeping it simple most of the time, every once and awhile it’s nice to do something a little nicer. Eggs benedict is the epitome of fancy breakfast for me, but I actually hate hollandaise. This avocado sauce is amazing. Enjoy!

⅓ cup cornmeal
½ teaspoon baking soda
¼ teaspoon salt
¼ teaspoon pepper
