If you’re near a Fleming’s Steakhouse (there are locations nationwide), you can celebrate Father’s Day with Filet Mignon Eggs Benedict (photo #1).
It’s a meat-lovers riff on the classic Eggs Benedict, which is Canadian bacon, a poached egg and hollandaise sauce on an English muffin (photo #2).
Fleming’s Eggs Benedict has filet mignon, sautéed spinach and hollandaise on a round of baked brioche French toast.
You can go surf-and-turf with this recipe: Filet Mignon & Crab Eggs Benedict.
Or, turn America’s favorite food into Burger Eggs Benedict.
The original recipe from the 1860s is toasted English muffins topped with a round of cooked ham “an eighth of an inch thick and of the same diameter as the muffins one each half.” A poached egg is placed atop each muffin half, and the whole is covered with hollandaise sauce.
Here’s the history of Eggs Benedict.
Over the years, the ham was replaced with the newly-popular Canadian bacon; and since then, there has been an explosion of variations.
Just take a look at these and plan your own Signature Eggs Benedict.
