April 16 is National Eggs Benedict Day. While this celebrated dish may have originated in New York, it has become a brunch staple enjoyed by many across the country — especially at Jardin, a new restaurant at Encore at Wynn Las Vegas. At Jardin, chef Joe Zanelli gives this classic dish a luxe touch by crowning poached eggs atop a bed of savory lobster meat and serving it with a rich, house-made tomato hollandaise sauce. Chef Zanelli has shared his recipe for Lobster Eggs Benedict with us, but if you find yourself brunching in Las Vegas, stop by the restaurant for this delectable dish and take advantage of their build-your-own Bloody Mary cart.
Recipe courtesy of The Happy Egg Co.This recipe calls for only five ingredients, and can be prepared in less than 15 minutes. Cutting into the poached egg releases a creamy yolk that mimics that texture of a decadent ricotta cheese.
For a Southern classic with a twist, Kretschmer has added some wheat germ to this hearty dish. Serve these grits with a mixed green salad or fruit salad for a delicious brunch, lunch or even dinner.
