CRAP !
Benedict Arnold has nothing to do with Eggs Benedict. There is no consensus
on the exact origin of the dish but most trace its origins to around the
turn of the 20th century in New York. Three possible sources for the dish
are Lemuel Benedict, Commodore E. C. Benedict, or Mrs. Le Grand Benedict.
The dish consists of ham or bacon and poached eggs on the two halves of an
English muffin, which is then covered in Hollandaise sauce. Variations
include Eggs Blackstone (featuring tomato slices), Eggs Florentine
(featuring spinach instead of meat), Eggs Mornay (featuring Mornay sauce
instead of Hollandaise), and Eggs Neptune (featuring crab instead of ham or
bacon), and LT's take, Eggs Benedict Arnold, which calls for the Muffin to
be buttered and served on the side, and the ham, Eggs and Sauce to be piled
on a bed of Home Fries with Onions.
