Whether it’s Christmas Day or any day over the holidays, we’ve got everyone’s brunch fave, eggs Benny, in five fabulous variations. We’ve travelled far and wide to bring global good taste to your table, from a deluxe surf-and-turf version to a Mexican-style eggs Benedict recipe to one that whisks you to a French café.
But first, the hollandaise sauce!
We know, the allure of eggs Benny lies in not only a perfectly poached, coddled, or fried egg but also the velvety richness of a well-made hollandaise sauce. We’ve demystified this much-lauded accompaniment in this easy-to-follow recipe that’s sure to level up any brunch-worthy Benny.
Steak and Eggs Benedict
Poached eggs + sliced steak or shaved roast beef + hollandaise sauce + New York–style everything bagel or baguette + chives
Traditional steak and eggs goes gourmet in this rendition that uses a New York–style toasted everything bagel and hollandaise sauce, with a sprinkling of chives on top to offset the sliced steak or shaved roast beef. Hold the brown sauce! Bake up a side of these sweet potato fries to pair with your Benny.
Mexican Eggs Benedict
Sunny side up fried eggs + cooked chorizo sausage + guacamole or sliced avocado + chopped tomato + sliced jalapeño + lime juice + dash of your favourite Tabasco-style hot sauce stirred into the hollandaise sauce + corn tortilla
We think you’ll love this eggs-Benny twist on huevos rancheros! Sunny side up eggs get layered onto a griddle- or skillet-warmed corn tortilla (if you prefer flour tortillas, go ahead!) and sandwiched between guacamole or avo slices and chorizo crumbles. Top with sliced jalapeño for a little extra heat and a kicked-up hollandaise. ¡Que bueno! Try with a side of Roasted Spicy Carrot Fries for something different. Hot tip: Make it a fiesta and serve with Compliments Organic Tortilla Chips for scooping and dipping.
French Bistro Eggs Benny
Poached eggs + Gruyère cheese + sliced brie + croissant + lightly sautéed spinach + hollandaise sauce + crumbled bacon
Say “oui!” to this fine French bistro–style interpretation of eggs Benny served over a warm croissant with lightly sautéed spinach, Gruyère, brie, and crumbled bacon. Serve with a fresh Zesty Root Vegetable Salad to cut through the delicious richness of the dish. Say “merci” as all of the compliments roll in!
Eggs Benny with Lobster
Poached eggs + steamed lobster* + hollandaise sauce + toasted English muffin or brioche bread from our Bakery Dept. + chopped parsley or a pinch of smoked paprika
There’s no better way to celebrate the holidays than by offering a sumptuous eggs Benny topped with a piece of buttery lobster! Let us do the heavy lifting by steaming the lobster* for you while you shop. Serve with an icy-cold Grapefruit-Raspberry Mimosa Mocktail (or cocktail, you choose) and ring in the holidays in style!
*We offer free in-store steaming of lobsters at select locations.
Waffle Eggs Benny
Swap the English muffin for a toasted Belgian waffle, top with a few crispy Compliments Potato Nuggets Tater Treats, turkey bacon, eggs, hollandaise to pool in the waffle cervices, and a dusting of paprika to give the eggs Benny a whole new world of flavour. Whip up this Spinach & Roasted Pear Salad with Candied Pecans for a fresh hit to your brunch main.
