About National Eggs Benedict Day

When is National Eggs Benedict Day? This holiday is always observed on April 16

What do you usually have for breakfast? When asked this question, scrambled or over-light eggs often come to mind. So does cereal, pancakes, and French toast. But, we venture to guess that Eggs Benedict is not among the list of common breakfast foods that you eat. It’s not that people don’t like them. Rather, it’s just that we never seem to think about them. Well, National Eggs Benedict Day is going to change your way of thinking. Today is a day to savor and enjoy. This April 16 holiday is celebrated with a mouthwatering combination of eggs with hollandaise sauce, and Canadian bacon on an English muffin.

A lot of people have never had this delicious breakfast item. If you’re upper crust, you most likely have enjoyed Eggs Benedict several times, and perhaps, regularly. However, many people (regular folk) have never tried Eggs Benedict. Go ahead and do a survey. See how many of your friends can even tell you how it’s made, or what’s in it. Or, ask them what hollandaise sauce is.

History and Origin of National Eggs Benedict Day

Our research did not find the creator or the origin of this day. We do know that Eggs Benedict was created in New York City over 100 years ago. There are historical claims that one of two individuals are credited with its creation: Mrs. LeGrand Benedict in 1893, and Mr. Lemuel Benedict in 1894.

Without any information from the creator of this day, we may never know if this is a true national holiday. We found no documentation in congressional records to confirm that this is truly a national day. Nor, did we find a presidential proclamation.
