Eggs Benedict Day celebrates one of the most popular additions to any brunch menu. Eggs benedict traditionally combines english muffins halfs, canadian bacon (or another form of ham or bacon), poached eggs, and hollandaise sauce. There are many different versions of the tasty breakfast meal, but the common thread is some kind of bread, eggs, and a creamy sauce. There are a few different versions of the eggs benedict origin story, but most agree that it was in the USA in the 1940s or 50s. Enjoy it on April 16th by going out for brunch or trying your hand at making it on your own.
