Start by cooking the Smoked Amaretto Syrup as it will take the longest time on the grill.
To make the Smoked Amaretto Syrup
Place the amaretto in a saucepan and cook on
the stove over high heat until reduced by half and a syrup consistency has formed.
Place the syrup in a shallow flat-bottomed
dish and combine with the maple syrup.
Set your Pit Boss Platinum KC Combo to the
Smoke the syrup heavily for at least 1 hour.
To make the Spinach Hollandaise
In a large pan add the olive oil over medium
heat, add the shallot and cook until translucent, add the garlic and cook until fragrant. Add the spinach and
cook until it begins to wilt, add 1/2 cup of the water and cook until the spinach is completely wilted.
Remove from the pan and place in paper towels, squeeze out as much of the moisture as possible.
Place the spinach in a blender and use just
as much of the remaining 1/2 cup of water as needed to make a smooth puree. Set aside until needed.
Add the lemon juice and zest along with the egg yolks and cook in the double boiler, stirring constantly and
removing the bowl from the heat if it starts to get too hot. When the eggs begin to thicken add the spinach
puree and continue whisking until you start to see ribbons in the hollandaise, slowly add the butter stirring
constantly in a slow stream. Once thickened remove from the heat and season with the cayenne, salt and pepper.
To make the Prosciutto Benny
Using the flat top of the Pit Boss Platinum
KC Combo set to medium high heat, spread the butter edge to edge on the English muffins and toast them to golden
brown on the flat top.
Place 2 slices of the prosciutto on the flat
top to crisp, once crisp remove to a paper towel lined plate and reserve for plating.
Once the muffins are toasted place them on a
plate or platter and place one piece of prosciutto on each piece, folding the prosciutto around the muffin to
make a meat nest for the egg.
Sous vide, poach or fry your egg so you have
a runny yolk, but the whites are fully set. Place the egg on top of the prosciutto and pour the hollandaise over
Top with the crumbled crispy prosciutto and
the parsley leaves.
To make the Buttermilk Pancakes
Combine the salt, baking powder, baking soda,
AP flour, sugar, cinnamon and allspice in a bowl and whisk well to combine.
In a separate bowl whisk together the eggs,
buttermilk and butter.
Combine the wet and dry mixtures and mix well
until fully combined and no lumps remain.
Melt 1/4 cup butter (use more as needed) on
the flat top of the KC Combo.
Using a ladle pour out enough batter to make
pancakes your desired size.
Repeat the process until all the pancakes are
cooked. Serve hot.
To make the Crispy Hash Browns
Using a box grater, grate the clean skin on
potatoes on the largest hole.
Place the potatoes in cold water to keep from
