It's a trick! Nope its a not an eggs Benny it's actually a dessert! Pound cake for the English muffin, smoked strawberries for the ham, lemon semifreddo as the egg, creme anglais as the hollandaise, fried cake as the hash browns and coulis as the ketchup! Done for a private dinner tonight, I think it turned out pretty cool!
It’s on my summer bucket list to try 4 new Edmonton cafés! @districtcafeyeg is one of my favourites because their croissants are so addictive 😅 If you’re in the #yeg area, what are some of your favourite coffee shops?! #yegcafecrawl
🎉Happy Birthday @caffeinekings !!! 🎊 It’s been three years since my super fave opened their doors and I fell in love with their coffee and crumpet eggs Benedict, which I always hold out hope will make a triumphant return one day 😁 Doesn’t really matter if it’s on a crumpet or some delicious sourdough, their eggs bene will always leave a smile on my face ☺️ Head on in for a free cupcake today to celebrate! #goldcoastfoodie
Unfortunately, the UDSA’s dietary guidelines' demonization of saturated fat unintentionally created an increased demand for poultry that radically transformed the chickens we eat— and not for the better. As the demand for chickens rose, the quality of their signature product— eggs— also took a nosedive, thanks in part to government fearmongering about cholesterol. The same dietary guidelines that told us to avoid fat and replace it with bread and pasta also told us that egg yolks would raise our cholesterol and give us heart attacks. That advice led generations of Americans to trade in their scrambled eggs and sausages for egg white omelets and potatoes. But those recommendations were wrong. Neither the chicken nor the egg deserved their bad reputations. Don’t be put off by the decades of misinformation. You should eat eggs freely— they’re great for you and certainly don’t cause heart disease. But you should observe the same rules for eggs as you do for chickens. You want eggs from pastured hens that were fed an organic diet, and you want them as fresh as possible. You can even get omega3-rich eggs from chickens fed flaxseeds and other omega-3-rich foods. And if you’re lucky enough to come across weird eggs— like ones with a bluish shell, or eggs from ducks or turkeys— you should give them a try, just to keep things interesting.
As a meat lover, this is eggsactly what I needed for brunch: Meat Lovers Benny from @TheParlourInn with shaved steak and bacon 🥓!
Fun fact: this was one of the very first restaurants I tried in #StratfordON , more than 10 years ago, and it used to be called Olde English Parlour. If you love traditional British pub feels, this is a must when you @VisitStratfordON!
I wished the poached eggs were runny though so I could've done some yolkporn. 🤣
🍽 Meat Lovers Benny ($14) - shaved steak, smoked provolone, bacon, poached eggs on English muffin, classic Hollandaise, home fries and fruit slices.
