The Egg Dish Most Chefs Never Order At Brunch
Brunch has skyrocketed in popularity since 2004, with hundreds of recipes out there for Sunday brunch offerings that range from simple muffins to more elaborate casseroles. If you're going to pay the premium for going out, be sure to indulge in something special, and beware of the one dish chefs claim is always a no-go.
At most restaurants, eggs Benedict is the one item that chefs recommend customers not order. A classic eggs Benedict recipe involves perfectly poached eggs resting atop a toasted English muffin with a slice of ham, all topped with Hollandaise sauce, which is notoriously difficult to make and can be a disaster if the sauce breaks.
Chef Eddie Brik recommends diners stay away from the sauce unless they arrive when the restaurant opens, since as Hollandaise is made with egg yolks, it can spoil rather quickly — especially in a hot restaurant kitchen. So, unless you know the chef is making each batch fresh, it's better to order something else.
