National Eggs Benedict Day is April 16th—and in today’s day and age, there is no shortage of ways to enjoy this tasty brunch classic. If you’ve been in search of that perfect addition to your family brunch table, a twist on Eggs Benedict might be just what you’ve been missing.
In today’s blog, we will be sharing five ways to enjoy Eggs Benedict from home. We hope that these ideas help you get closer to that ultimate goal—more quality time with the ones you love!
Traditional Eggs Benedict
Of course, the simplest version of Eggs Benedict is the tastiest for many. For a traditional treat, top an English muffin with Canadian bacon, a poached egg, and a delicious serving of hollandaise sauce. Once you get the key components right, the whole family will enjoy this seemingly simple—but truly delicious—breakfast dish.
Country Style Eggs Benedict
If you and your family love a good country breakfast, but still want to enjoy the innovative style of Eggs Benedict, try a country style version! You can swap the traditional bacon in Eggs Benedict for fried chicken or steak, and the English muffin pieces for your favorite biscuits. You can be sure that everyone will be coming back for seconds when you serve Eggs Benedict, country style.
Steak and Eggs Benedict
For a satisfying substitution, you can always add steak to your Eggs Benedict recipe. Serve beef in place of your ham or bacon and enjoy! You can also swap out the traditional hollandaise sauce for béarnaise, a French sauce that is often used to add flavor to steak.
Saint Patrick’s Day may have just passed by, but you can still enjoy a delicious Irish-style breakfast treat from home! Irish Benedict is made by using corned beef as the key meat, and not ham or bacon. You may also rethink the sauce by using a cheese sauce or other variation on the classic hollandaise.
Finally, for those who prefer a lighter breakfast that’s just as delicious as traditional Eggs Benedict, there is Eggs Florentine—a similar dish that swaps in spinach for the ham or bacon traditionally used.
As is the case with any of these dishes, you can add fruits or your favorite hash as a side dish to complete the meal and make it a little more filling.
