Summary
Eggs Benedict has become a classic American breakfast dish enjoyed by many people around the world.

Eggs Benedict is a classic American breakfast dish consisting of poached eggs, Canadian bacon or ham, and hollandaise sauce on two halves of an English muffin. The origin of Eggs Benedict is somewhat disputed, but there are a few popular theories about its invention.

One theory is that Eggs Benedict was created in the late 1800s at the Waldorf Hotel in New York City. According to this story, a wealthy customer named Lemuel Benedict requested "buttered toast, poached eggs, crisp bacon, and a hooker of Hollandaise" as a hangover cure. The dish was so popular that it was added to the hotel's menu.

Another theory is that Eggs Benedict was invented in the late 19th century by chef Charles Ranhofer at Delmonico's restaurant in New York City. Ranhofer included a similar dish called "Eggs à la Benedick" in his cookbook "The Epicurean" in 1894.

Regardless of its exact origins, Eggs Benedict has become a classic American breakfast dish and is enjoyed by many people around the world.
