I had a downtown breakfast meeting in Westminster, Maryland, yesterday at Harry’s Main Street Grille. From the outside it looks like part of the Main Street renovations, newer facade with fresh paint and a contemporary sign. On the inside the feel is more…diner.
I like diners though, especially for breakfast. And Harry’s had a short and simple breakfast menu with one of my favorites: Eggs Benedict. I never make that at home, and when I eat out I like to get meals that I wouldn’t typically cook at home, so Eggs Benedict is often a contender if it’s on the menu.

And Harry’s Main Street Grille? They had several versions of Eggs Benedict. From traditional, to veggie, to crab, the Benedict options are endless. My choice? American Eggs Benedict.
Oh. My. Gawd.
Sounds simple: poached eggs, hollandaise sauce, English muffin, AMERICAN BACON, and sliced tomato. But the combo is ridiculously good. Better than the original version, in my opinion. Yes. Better.
Unfortunately, I forgot to take a photo of the actual American Eggs Benedict I ate. BUT, I did find another blog that made a version of Eggs Benedict that’s very similar to the one I had yesterday. In “Eggs Benedict Win & Fail,” Justin and Lauren take the time to show you their steps, as well as what happens when you don’t baby the hollandaise sauce properly.
By the way, I love that they show the win AND the fail!
Justin and Lauren didn’t layer the tomato and bacon under the poached egg, but in a deconstructed way, it’s pretty much the same as the American Eggs Benedict from Harry’s Main Street Grille. And looks just as delicious.
By the way, I want their egg poaching cups. Just sayin’.
