Pulled Pork Eggs Benedict

Pulled Pork Eggs Benedict is the ultimate breakfast experience. Barbecue pulled pork, English muffins, poached eggs, and plenty of Hollandaise!

When I lie in bed at night and dream about food, Pulled Pork Eggs Benedict is right at the top of the dream pile.

In case you think this is a quick-and-easy-breakfast-idea, by the way, you’re in the wrong place. P.P.E.B. is basically the opposite of quick and easy.

How about labor-intensive? Time-consuming? And worth it?

I mean, LOOK AT THIS.

I’m pretty sure I’ve peaked. It’s all downhill from here on out, folks.

So, obviously this a great way to put your leftover pulled pork to work. Have you tried my Magic Slow Cooker Pulled Pork? That’s what I’m using. Extra Sweet Baby Ray’s, please.

Learn the secret ingredient for Slow Cooker Pulled Pork so tender, it falls apart! Just two ingredients (plus your favorite sauce) and no browning needed!

Except I’m making a batch of it just to make the P.P.E.B. Leftover, schmeftover.

Next the poached eggs. I wrote out all the info in the instructions below, but let me just say this.

Poaching eggs is no big deal. Making eggs over-easy is harder. So. Don’t walk away because of the eggs.

If anything, walk away because of the Hollandaise Sauce. I’M JUST KIDDING. I literally just wrote a tutorial on Hollandaise Sauce yesterday. You’re covered. You’ve got this.

You know what else you have?

A crusty, buttery English muffin. A heap of barbecue pulled pork. A poached egg. AND HOLLANDAISE.

It’s magical, it’s glorious, it’s the stuff dreams are made of. My dreams. I hope you love it as much as I do!

Ingredients

For the hollandaise:

  • 3 egg yolks
  • 1 tablespoon water
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice
  • 8 ounces clarified butter warm
  • Salt to taste
  • Tabasco sauce or cayenne pepper, to taste

For the poached eggs:

  • 1 tablespoon vinegar
  • 8 eggs

For the Eggs Benedict:

Instructions

To make the Hollandaise:

  1. Set a glass or metal bowl over a pot of gently simmering water to make a double boiler (do not let the water touch the bowl). 

  2. Add egg yolks to the bowl. Using a metal whisk or wire whip, whisk the yolks constantly without overcooking the yolks. You'll know the yolks have thickened enough when you can draw a line through the yolks and yolks stay put. The line does not fill in.

  3. Remove from heat and immediately stir in lemon juice. Off the heat, set a kitchen towel over pot of water and set bowl on top.

  4. Starting with just a few drops at a time, whisk in the warmed clarified butter. Once the emulsion has formed, you can add butter more quickly.

  5. Once all the butter has been added, taste for seasonings. Add salt and tabasco or cayenne pepper if desired. 

  6. Set aside in a warm (but not hot) place until you are ready to assemble the Eggs Benedict. If the sauce appears too thick, whisk in a few drops of warm water until desired consistency is reached.

To poach the eggs:

  1. Fill a 3-quart saucepan half full with water. Add vinegar and bring to a simmer, about 200 degrees. Hold this temperature. Crack 2 eggs into two separate ramekins, small bowls, or tea cups.
  2. Carefully slide each cracked egg into the simmering water. Poach as desired, about 3 to 5 minutes. Using a slotted spoon, carefully remove each egg. Using a paring knife or kitchen scissors, trim any jagged edges if desired. 

To make the Eggs Benedict:

  1. Arrange 2 halves of an English muffin on a plate. Top each muffin half with 1/4 cup pulled pork.
  2. Carefully lay a poached egg on each pile of pulled pork. Drizzle with hollandaise sauce. Garnish with parsley if desired.
  3. Repeat with remaining English muffins, pulled pork, and eggs, and Hollandaise Sauce. Serve immediately.

  1. I love how you mention lying awake dreaming about food! I do that! I do that!

    But this really is the stuff (food) dreams are made of. This reminds me of something you’d get served on that show on the food network ‘Diners, Drive-ins and Dives’ (or something like that). They always have slow-cooked stuff with mountains of other delicious ‘stuff’ added.

    Can you set the breakfast table for one more next weekend, please?


  2. This would make the perfect breakfast in bed meal! So glad you were able to recreate this at home :D

  3. The nutrition info says that this has 94 carbs per serving? Is that a misprint? The pulled pork recipe only has about 20 carbs per serving. The only other ‘carby’ thing is the English muffin and one of those is about 25 carbs.
    My T1 diabetic husband had this in a restaurant and it did not spike his blood sugar so I thought that I’d love to make it. But he could never handle 94 carbs.
    Thanks.

    • Hi Marie, I’m so sorry for the confusion. I took a look at the back-end of the nutrition label and it was a complete disaster. The pork wasn’t even being counted and the recipe was counting 8 English muffins instead of 4. I have updated the label so it is much more accurate. I would say a lot of carbs are probably coming from the barbecue sauce, so you can definitely keep that under control by choosing a low-sugar version or making your own. Right now the label is saying 49.8g of carbs. I hope this is helpful, it’s probably not perfect but it’s better than it was! Thank you so much for your question and I’m so sorry about all of this. Thanks. -Meggan
