Vermont Wagyu Eggs Benedict for Two

Our eggs, straight from the nest—known for their rich yellow yokes are delicately poached that rest on tender slices of Vermont Wagyu Steak and a buttery Vermont English muffin. Once the breakfast stack is complete, we drizzle homemade creamy hollandaise sauce with just enough fresh lemon juice to give the sauce that ultimate subtle tangy flavor, then finished with chives from our garden.

Our Vermont Wagyu Steak is seasoned modestly with salt & pepper, and grilled to perfection. So tender that slicing each piece of Wagyu takes less effort than it takes to slice through a wedge of Camembert. It’s nearly impossible to describe the tenderness, slight chew and juiciness of what now has become the best steak we’ve ever tasted. Each of our Wagyu Steak offerings has consistent well-developed marbling throughout, with an interesting outer-layer of savory fat that is hand-trimmed prior to serving certainly contributes to the extraordinary flavor composition.

Vegetarian Breakfast Eggs Benedict Florentine at Pond Mountain Inn

Our farm-to-table Eggs Benedict Florentine served this morning al fresco combine the culinary skills of creating the perfect poached egg, homemade tangy hollandaise sauce, sautéed spinach and garlic with a thinly sliced homegrown tomato on a toasted Vermont English muffin. This is a guest favorite whether vegetarian or not.

Many consider Eggs Benedict Florentine a somewhat simple adaptation of eggs Benedict, the dish is thought to have originated with Catherine de Medici, the Florence-born wife to France’s King Henry II. Legend has it the young queen was particularly fond of spinach… And, most agree that Eggs Benedict originate from New York City—now, its precise origins become a little murky. Delmonico’s, in Manhattan say it was created in their kitchen in 1860, and another account has a hungover retired Wall Street banker wondering into the Waldorf Hotel looking for a “hangover cure” and ordered what has now become the traditional ingredients of the classic Eggs Benedict.

What makes our Eggs Benedict Florentine, and our Eggs Benedict so delicious is that we only use all local ingredients—our eggs come directly from the farm, and sometimes within a few hours of being laid. Generally, chickens lay their eggs either in the early morning or mid-morning, usually within six hours of sunrise, but sometimes there are already eggs in the nesting boxes when our neighbor opens up the coop. Occasionally, we have duck eggs, for those looking for something distinctive.
