Texas Benedict

Southwest flavors with a classic dish. I was speaking with my brother Mike, and we concluded that our least favorite Benedict is the original. So let’s switch out the English muffin with Texas toast. Then the Canadian bacon is discarded in favor of Southwest seasoned skirt steak. A fried egg replaces the poached egg. Lastly, hollandaise sauce is updated with some cayenne pepper, chili powder, and a little extra lemon to cut through all the richness. Then topped off with some pico de gallo. I hope you like it.
