How to Make Pulled Pork Eggs Benedict

  1. Make the hollandaise sauce.
    • In a double boiler over low heat, whisk together 4 egg yolks until they start to thicken.
    • Gradually add 1 stick of melted butter, whisking continuously to ensure a smooth and creamy texture.
    • Stir in a pinch of salt, 1-2 teaspoons of lemon juice, and 1/4 teaspoon of chipotle powder. Whisk until the sauce thickens. Adjust seasoning with salt and white pepper as needed.
  2. Poach the eggs.
    • Fill a deep skillet or pot with water and bring it to a gentle simmer.
    • Add a splash of white vinegar to the simmering water.
    • Gently crack an egg into a small bowl, then carefully slide it into the simmering water. Repeat with the remaining eggs.
    • Allow the eggs to poach for about 1-2 minutes, ensuring the whites are set, but the yolks remain runny. Use a slotted spoon to remove the eggs and drain on paper towels.
  3. Toast the split English muffins. Place them in a toaster or under a broiler until they are golden-brown.
  4. Assemble the dish. Layer each toasted muffin half with a generous helping of warmed pulled pork. Add a poached egg on top and drizzle with 2-3 tablespoons of the chipotle hollandaise sauce.
  5. Serve immediately and enjoy!

Chef Jenn’s Tips

  • Fresh eggs are best for poaching as they hold their shape better.
  • If your hollandaise sauce becomes too thick, a splash of warm water can help thin it out.
  • For an added kick, sprinkle some extra chipotle powder on top before serving.
  • Gently reheat the pulled pork to retain its moisture and flavor.

Make It A Meal

To make Pulled Pork Eggs Benedict a complete meal, consider pairing it with a fresh fruit salad or some crispy fried potatoes. For more porky goodness, add a side of smoked candied bacon. Yum! A glass of freshly squeezed orange juice or a cup of robust coffee would complement this breakfast perfectly, setting you up for a great day ahead.

Storage

If you find yourself with leftover chipotle hollandaise sauce, store it in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to a week. While the sauce isn’t suitable for freezing, the pulled pork certainly is! Ensure it’s cooled completely before transferring to a freezer-safe container or bag. It can be stored frozen for up to 3 months. When you’re ready to enjoy it again, thaw it in the refrigerator overnight and reheat it gently.

    I was intrigued by your recipe title. Like egg benedict with pulled pork? So when I read I was like aha…I’m glad I did check it out. Because it was handy when we did the barbecue on a past bank holiday. But I used lamb meat. I followed your recipe to the letter. It was nice to use up some leftovers in a different way.

    I am such a fan of Eggs Benedict and I thought I had tried every version until I saw this. Using leftover pulled pork is genius! I used regular Hollandaise sauce without chipotle and enjoyed every single bite!

    There used to be a little cafe down near the water where I live that did pulled porks egg benny. It was delicious, but it closed years ago. I had forgotten about it completly until I saw your recipe on pinterest. Obviously had to give it a go, I always have frozen pulled pork in the deep freeze 😉

    I always make so much pulled pork, because it takes so long to smoke. But I’d never thought to use it before breakfast before. Loved this idea.
