There are a few claims to the origins of this dish. One claim was that a retired Wall street stock broker, “Lemuel Benedict” wandered into a hotel looking for a hangover cure. The Maitre D’hotel was so impressed, he listed it on the hotel menu. One claim that can’t be denied is how enjoyable eggs Benedict are for breakfast. Try making them yourself with this easy recipe, but definitely order them for breakfast next time you’re out or on holidays.
