It's hard to make time for a proper sit down breakfast with my boyfriend or my family especially with a busy schedule. This past weekend, my boyfriend and I revisited a diner that we've recently started going to: Coach House Diner. We've visited Coach House Diner twice for dinner, so we decided to come here for brunch.
When I go to a diner for brunch, I typically order an omelet, but this time I wanted to try something different and new. While I was glancing at the breakfast menu, I decided to go for the Eggs Benedict and it consisted of poached eggs with Canadian bacon and an English muffin with Hollandaise sauce with a side of home fries.
I decided to order the Eggs Benedict because I never tried it before and was always curious as to what it was and what it tasted like. I was hesitant in trying the Eggs Benedict because I'm so used to having eggs in an omelet, sunny side-up, scrambled, or boiled. I've never had it poached.
The eggs Benedict was soft and light. Hollandaise sauce is best served with eggs Benedict. There was a hint of lemon juice in it, but it wasn't too overwhelming. I never had Hollandaise sauce, but I do know it is one of the "Mother" sauces. The inside of the eggs Benedict was very runny and it was interesting to look at as it was oozing out.
The eggs Benedict was just something to I wanted to try because I was always curious as to what the experience would be like. Sadly, I don't think I'll try it again because I've learned that I don't really like my eggs poached and yolk runny. It wasn't too appealing for me.
As for everything else on the plate, the home fries were good, English muffin was crunchy and toasty, but the Canadian bacon was a little too salty.
What is your ideal breakfast?
