Lobster Benedict

Eggs Benedict is a traditional American breakfast or brunch dish that consists of an English muffin topped with a poached egg, bacon or ham, and hollandaise sauce. The dish was first popularized in New York City. Many variations on the basic recipe are served.

My dad and I absolutely love Eggs Benedict, so I decided to make us Lobster Benedicts. It was so fun cooking for him, my mom, uncles, and aunt. My little cousin, Kaitlyn helped me cook! My dad made everyone his world famous bloody mary’s, and they went really well with the meal. It was a Saturday morning well spent!
