I really like a good Eggs Benedict, but so often it's a poorly done dish.  However, in recent history I've been able to have quite a few good Benedicts, including

1. Al's Breakfast, Minneapolis
2. Wasp's Diner, Woodstock, VT
3. Dream Diner, Tyngsboro, MA
4. Modern Diner, Pawtucket, RI
5. Hell's Kitchen, Minneapolis

(1, 3, and 5 are all Roadfood reviewed places, BTW)

I wrote up several of these places on my blog here.  Here's my favorite at Al's:



Where are your favorites (especially in SoCal and DFW, where I'm probably headed next)?

It's not exactly roadfood (and was a bit of a splurge), but the best Benedict I have ever had was at Prairie Grass Cafe in Northbrook, IL.
It's a Surf and turf Benedict,
One side is a petite tallgrass filet and the other a crabcake , both topped with poached egg and hollandaise.
O.M.G.
I thought I had gone to heaven, Best. breakfast. ever.

They also make a wonderful signature benedict that is an english muffin topped with
fresh sauteed spinach and crumbled bacon,
topped with poached egg and a roasted tomato hollandaise.
That is also wonderful, and more reasonably priced.

Cafe Brittany in Palm Passage in Charlotte Amalie served the very best eggs Benedict I've ever had in a restaurant. With a daiquiri or three it was always a wonderful lunch, although admittedly I never got much productive work done afterwards.

I saw some nice black truffles just the other day for a mere $200 for a quarter of a pound. A shaving per egg? Not very expensive.

mland: 
math class: $200 per 1/4 pound, would be $800 per pound.
There's two ways to look at that when compared to $1000. Either 20% less than $1000. Or, the $1000 is an additional 25% of $800.
 
so, $200 per 1/4 pound is a pretty good savings over $999 per pound.

I'm 52 years old and have dined from coast to coast. I have never seen a truffle on eggs Benedict. That dish is all about the quality of the ham and the hollandaise. Me thinks someone is being a bit snobbish when inquiring about 'so called' missing truffles in these pics.

Re:Eggs Benedict 2010/05/18 17:23:43
Oh?

What's in eggs Benedict?
From the bottom up:
English muffins. Unfrozen is best. Their split halves should be toasted to crispness. Tearing the halves apart with a fork or with hands, rather than slicing them, increases their surface area, and therefore also their flavor and absorbancy. Few restaurants bother. English muffins need not be the soft, yeasty, most popular Thomas's brand. Actually, they should not be, since Thomas's standard muffins are too small and their sandwich-size muffins are too large. Matthew's is a good retail brand of English muffin in the New York City area.
Canadian bacon. Standard bacon comes from pork "bellies," the underside of the hog, along the ribs. Canadian bacon comes from the meatier loin, along the backbone. It is trimmed of excess fat and is cured like ham. Often, ordinary ham is substituted in eggs Benedict. Canadian bacon should be freshly grilled, but is always packaged presliced, which does not improve flavor or texture. Technically, it is "Canadian-style" bacon if it is not of Canadian origin. Canadians do not eat it more than any other pork-product-loving people, though they may call it back bacon or pea-meal bacon.

EDIT: By the way, I don't have eggs Benedict for breakfast. It's a lunch or dinner meal for me.

Canadian Back Bacon is the crowning glory to a good Eggs Benedict.
There is a difference in Canadian back bacon, if it is smoked it is Canadian Bacon, if it is just sweet pickled cured, rolled in cornmeal, and not smoked, it is Peameal bacon. As Michael states, "Canadian bacon comes from the meatier loin, along the backbone".

They are both excellent on eggs Benedict.

Re:Eggs Benedict 2013/05/31 08:08:22
I had no idea that Eggs Benedict was a diner staple in New England, or at least Connecticut.  Every single diner I've been to here has had it on their menu.  Quite a change from Kansas City, where the only non-fast-food breakfast option near where I lived (in the KC northland) was an IHOP, which didn't carry the dish.  (Funny how they can have a million kinds of omelettes, and offer eggs "any style", but somehow not have Benedict.)
 
So far I've had it at the Starlight Diner, Mitchell's on Main, the Cromwell Diner, and the Olympia Diner.  Unfortunately I only have pictures of the last two.
 
Here's the Cromwell Diner's version.  The hollandaise was a little gritty, and the Canadian bacon was nice and thick but a bit too tender somehow, as though it were processed.  The home fries, however, were exceptional:
 

 
They also do an Eggs Florentine (listed on their menu as "Florentine Benedict") that is rather better, though I think I would have preferred steamed spinach to raw:
 

 
The Olympia Diner's hollandaise was nice and smooth.  The Canadian bacon was thinner than Cromwell's, but definitely not processed.  It didn't offer much flavor though.  Their home fries were totally bland:

I've usually seen the ´╗┐smoken salmon benedict called "Egg Norgwegian" or "Norwegian Benedict." and that was, for a long time, my favorit EB version, and I often made it at home - which pleased my wife, greatly, since she absolutely loves smoked salmon
 
But then, as you know Jim, the mid-atlantic is famous for it's local delicasy, and that delicasy combined with the benedict model is, by far, my favorite EB version, called "Eggs Chesapeake" or "Chesapeake Benedict" (or similar variation) which utilizes MD style crab cakes in lieu of the canadian bacon. Some places, who make a good crab cake to start, just knock it out of the park. It's so freaking delicious - it doesn't matter if the rest of the benedicts look or sound appetizing, I am getting the Chesapeake!

Re:Eggs Benedict 2013/11/11 07:56:16
Marteen, this is what I do at home:  bring a medium pot or deep skillet to a boil.  Turn it down to a simmer and add 2 tablesoons of white vinegar.  Meanwhile, in a small saucepan, make the sauce with the Knoor brand mix, but substitute cream for the milk and stir in 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice; set aside and toast English muffins.  I use Thomases, original flavor.  Lightly butter them.  Cook slices of real Canadian bacon in skillet until lightly browned, just a couple minutes.  When the water is ready, "make a "whirlpool" with a large spoon.  With the whirlpool going, slide an egg gently into the water.  It helps to already have the egg on a small plate first and to use room temp eggs.  The goal is to keep the eggs intact, and cook the whites and leave the yolks runny.  Alternately, you can just do sunnyside up.   I would practice this before making for company lol.  Repeat with remaining eggs, 2 for each serving.  Put halves of muffins on plate, top each half with one piece bacon, then egg and finally sauce.  You can sprinkle the tops with chives if you want.

Finally got around to hitting up O'Rourke's Diner.  Had a variation on Eggs Benedict, Eggs Mornay:
 

 
The Mornay was a delightful change - rich and creamy, but not as in-your-face as hollandaise.  The thin slice of Irish bacon went with it perfectly.  The home fries looked attractive but actually didn't have a lot of taste to them; Cromwell's are honestly better. 
 
(One thing I enjoyed about this place was the perfectly-sized portions.  You felt neither stuffed nor cheated!)

Nice!

I've usually seen the ´╗┐smoken salmon benedict called "Egg Norgwegian" or "Norwegian Benedict." and that was, for a long time, my favorit EB version, and I often made it at home - which pleased my wife, greatly, since she absolutely loves smoked salmon

But then, as you know Jim, the mid-atlantic is famous for it's local delicasy, and that delicasy combined with the benedict model is, by far, my favorite EB version, called "Eggs Chesapeake" or "Chesapeake Benedict" (or similar variation) which utilizes MD style crab cakes in lieu of the canadian bacon. Some places, who make a good crab cake to start, just knock it out of the park. It's so freaking delicious - it doesn't matter if the rest of the benedicts look or sound appetizing, I am getting the Chesapeake!  
 


Sadly, Texas is NOT for crabs.
 
Since moving here in 2005 I have ordered crabcakes twice; only one was truly decent @ the Oceanaire.  The other, served as a crabcake benedict at this place was spectacularily vile.  (The tiny specks of crab had a fishy taste and smell that somehow overwhelmed the grease and breading).
 
So, on every visit to our place in McLean, a pilgrimage to G&M is always on our list.  For a Chesapeake Benedict, restaurants in the Clyde's Group do a decent job.

Thanks, Davydd! Hey, I'm headed that way in June...doing a loop from Telluride (3 day layover) and heading over Lizard Head down to Durango and then up 550...I was going to stop in Silverton at Handlebar's....but maybe I'll wait until Ouray. I love SW Colorado.
