Cuban Eggs Benedict

Cuban Eggs Benedict

If you’ve tried my recipe for The Best Carnitas here’s an idea for your leftovers.

Cuban Sandwich fans will LOVE these Cuban Eggs Benedict. They have all of the traditional elements: pulled pork, melty swiss cheese, pickles, and ham, but there’s an added richness from a runny fried egg and savory mustard cream sauce.

Perfect for lazy Sunday’s & those in need of a hangover cure.

Cuban Eggs Benedict Ingredients Notes:

  • Toasted Bread– Cuban bread works great here. English muffins, butter rolls, or sourdough are also great choices.
  • Swiss Cheese
  • Carnitas or Pulled Pork– for this you have a lot of options. You could grab some to-go from a BBQ joint, most grocery stores will have pulled pork in the freezer section, or if you have some extra time try out my recipe for The Best Carnitas. They are so easy to make with the crock-pot doing most of the work for you.

  • Dill Pickle Relish

  • Ham– I use country ham because I love extra salty foods. If that’s not your thing, and you’d like to cut down on the saltiness, use thick cut deli ham.

  • Fried Egg

  • Mustard Cream Sauce– ingredients for this can be found in recipe below
