6 Foods You Shouldn't Order At Brunch, According To Chefs
Eggs Benedict may not deserve the hype. In its purest form, Eggs Benedict consists of an English muffin topped with Canadian bacon, a poached egg, and a deluge of creamy hollandaise sauce. Using this recipe as a starting point, chefs have plenty of liberty to get creative, using different meats, different bases, and different sauces to jazz up their versions.
Some chefs enjoy inventive twists on the classic Benedict and would prefer to see these replace the traditional version altogether. Executive Chef Ryan Zeigler of Line & Lure in Ridgefield, Washington, explained that “English muffins and Canadian bacon have the potential to be so much more. The options are endless … smoked salmon Benedict with green olive bread, sous-vide egg, and Bearnaise sauce is a much more creative use of ingredients for eggs Benedict.”
