My love of eggs benedict has intertwined with my love of BBQ in this epic breakfast in celebration of Curly’s 30th birthday!

When Curly’s asked me to help celebrate their 30th birthday today I couldn’t say no! I have a special place in my heart for all things BBQ and I decided to kick off their special day with BBQ for breakfast.
Even on the weekends I am not a big fan of long elaborate recipes for breakfast. Often times I will prep something the night before, like a casserole, that just needs to be popped into the oven in the morning. However, I am a sucker for eggs benedict, which aren’t that difficult to make until you get to the Hollandaise sauce. Thankfully I discovered an easy way to make it and then took it a step further today by adding BBQ sauce to it.
Using Curly’s West Coast IPA pulled pork, this recipe came together in under 30 minutes. While the pork heated on the stove top, I toasted the English muffins, whisked together the Hollandaise, and poached the eggs. I almost served them with a side of cheesy breakfast potatoes but these benedicts were hearty enough that it didn’t need it!

BBQ PULLED PORK EGGS BENEDICT
1/2 cup plain Greek yogurt
2 tsp fresh lemon juice
2 egg yolk
1/2 tsp Dijon mustard
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp granulated sugar
1/2 tsp chipotle chili powder
4 tsp BBQ sauce
1 (16 oz.) pkg. Curly’s West Coast IPA Pulled Pork, cooked according to package directions
1 tsp vinegar
8 eggs, cracked and placed in individual ramekins (or I like to use Poach Pods)
4 English muffins, toasted
4 green onions, sliced
- Prepare the hollandaise. In the top of a double boiler or a heatproof bowl set over a saucepan of simmering water, whisk together the hollandaise ingredients (except the BBQ sauce). Cook over simmering water, stirring constantly, until the sauce is thick enough to coat the back of a spoon, 6 to 8 minutes. In last minute, whisk in the BBQ sauce and set aside.
- Fill a wide sauce or saute pan with two inches of water. Bring to a gentle simmer and add vinegar. Gently pour eggs into the pan. Cook 3 minutes, then remove carefully with a slotted spoon and let drain.
- To assemble, divide pulled pork evenly between the English muffin halves. Top with one poached egg and drizzle with hollandaise and green onion. Serve immediately.
