Take a different approach to eggs benedict by making this Philly Cheese Steak and Eggs Benedict that is made with toasted English muffins, provolone cheese, perfectly seared Rib-Eye steak, topped with poached eggs and creamy hollandaise sauce.
It took me a while to really appreciate eggs benedict. The part that I struggled with, which I am sure is what most people struggle with is the runny egg. Yeah, I can’t say that I also thought that runny eggs were yummy. I don’t know when or where it changed for me, but when it comes to eggs benedict, you can’t have a perfectly poached runny egg with the dish. It’s just not logical!
When eating Steak and Eggs for breakfast, you also have to have a medium cooked, over easy egg too! Sure you can have a completely cooked fried egg, but where is the fun in that? It took my husband to convince me that I should make a Philly Cheesesteak Eggs Benedict recipe. Mostly because I love Philly Cheesesteaks. I love them so much that I have really limited how many I eat within a year because I will just eat them all the time. But, my husband thought because I love them so much that I should translate the sandwich into a breakfast dish. Thus, creating Philly Cheese Steak and Eggs Benedict.
What’s in the Steak and Eggs Benedict?
Like any Eggs Benedict Recipe, this version is made with toasted English muffins, poached eggs, and topped with hollandaise sauce. The difference is instead of Canadian bacon I used seared rib-eye steak, I added provolone cheese and caramelized onions. Because this recipe is made in the spirit of the infamous Philly Cheesesteak Sandwich, you can add whatever you want. Here are some toppings that you can consider when making this recipe:
- Sauteed Mushrooms
- Banana Peppers
- Sauteed Peppers
In my case, I added what I typically get on my sandwich. Oh, and did I forget to mention you have spread Garlic Spread on the English muffins for extra flavor. BONUS!
Overall, this Eggs Benedict recipe does have a lot of parts but it is so good! You can get as creative as you want. You don’t have to just stick with caramelized onions as I did. You can use any of the toppings I mentioned above to make the dish your own.
Also, you don’t have to use English muffins either. You can use Buttermilk Biscuits, Texas toast, or toasted baguette. Get crazy when it comes to this recipe!
