A lightly toasted English muffin topped with ham or Canadian bacon sitting under a poached egg with creamy hollandaise sauce drizzled all over. Sound appetizing? If so, then start preparing for National Eggs Benedict Day on April 16.
The origins of how the dish was created are unclear, but the most famous story was printed in The New Yorker in 1942. Lemuel Benedict, a Wall Street broker, was at the Waldorf Hotel trying to find the perfect cure for his hangover, so he ordered the ingredients together and the classic eggs benedict was born. Regardless of how the dish originated, it has become a staple at breakfasts and brunches over the years with so many different variations on the original recipe.
For a vegetarian option, try the Northwest Eggs Benedict recipe from the Chambered Nautilus Bed & Breakfast Inn, a Seattle, WA, bed and breakfast. Instead of the traditional ham, enjoy the delicious taste of smoked salmon on top of your favorite artisan bread. If you travel to Portland, ME, lobster will most likely be on your culinary menu. So why not dig your claws into some for breakfast? The Chadwick Bed & Breakfast offers their signature Maine Lobster Benedict that is lightly dressed with a lemon scallion hollandaise.
The Azalea Inn & Gardens located in Savannah, GA, serves up Eggs Pomodoro, a unique spin on the tasty breakfast dish this is served with a delicious pesto sauce on a warm flaky biscuit. Sometimes there is nothing better than the original. If you’re looking for a classic Eggs Benedict then spend a weekend at the Island Manor House Bed & Breakfast located in Chincoteaque Island, VA. They keep it simple at the inn’s restaurant with creamy hollandaise sauce atop perfectly poached eggs and ham.
