In classic Morning Squeeze style, we want to be your friend with benedicts this weekend. We’re celebrating National Eggs Benedict Day on April 16 by offering a special Pulled Pork Benedict for the entire weekend.
This over-the-top bennie is loaded with ALL your favorite brunch flavors. It stacks apple juice and Jameson marinated pork and a honey, lime and pecan slaw on a cornbread base then tops it with that classic poached egg and a spicy BBQ Hollandaise sauce.
The Pulled Pork Benedict will be available at all Morning Squeeze locations from April 16 – 18 for $14. In addition to this limited time special, we’ve got three other benedicts that are always on our daily menu. All benedict plates come with a choice of potatoes, fruit or cottage cheese.
- The Classic Benedict ($12) with Canadian bacon, poached egg and Hollandaise on an English muffin.
- The vegetarian-friendly Cali Benedict ($13) with tomato, spinach, poached egg and Hollandaise on avocado halves.
- The Salmon Benedict ($14) with arugula, smoked salmon, poached egg and chipotle Hollandaise on an English muffin.
Benedict Fun Facts
We’re sure you’ve pondered this after a mimosa or two… Just who can we thank for creating the Eggs Benedict? Was it the 19th Century Pope… an American traitor…. the Delmonico chef… or a stock broker with a hangover? Just about anyone with the famed egg name in the mid-1800s lays some claim to stacking an English muffin with ham and poached eggs then smothering it in Hollandaise sauce.
- Delmonico’s Chef Charles Ranhoff says he created them for Ms. LeGrand Benedict.
- Stockbroker Lemuel Benedict says he invented the dish at the Waldorf Hotel as a hangover cure.
- Pope Benedict XIII is said to have liked a particular egg dish so much it was a regular morning meal.
- Even American traitor Benedict Arnold tries to get into the action.
