Brisket Breakfast “Benedict”

This post is sponsored by Thomas’. All opinions are our own.

We’re making a holiday brunch classic, eggs benedict, but with a Texas twist for our brisket breakfast “benedict” recipe.

Thomas’ English Muffins are super versatile so they’re great to have on hand for a quick breakfast or a tasty snack on-the-go.

Pick them up at your local H-E-B in-store and via online grocery.

Queso on an english muffin

We love how Thomas’ English Muffins pair so well with various flavors, whether you reach for sweet toppings like jams, nutella, or ricotta cheese with berries, or a more savory option, like the brisket breakfast dish we’re making today.

Traditionally, people think of salmon eggs benedict or eggs benedict florentine, but being based in Austin, it means we find an excuse to put brisket on everything!

What to do with leftover brisket

There have been MANY holiday seasons where we smoke a brisket for friends and family at Christmas.

Making a brisket is a labor of love so we always get a bigger brisket than needed. If you’re spending 20+ hours smoking a brisket, you might as well go BIG!

This always means we have plenty of leftovers.

We’ve whipped up leftover brisket ramen, brisket hash, brisket trash can nachos, and brisket breakfast tacos in the past, but we can always add another leftover brisket recipe to the arsenal. 

Thus, our leftover brisket eggs benedict recipe was created!

Eggs Benedict

Now, let’s set this record straight. This is not a traditional eggs benedict recipe.

Eggs benedict usually always includes an english muffin, poached egg, and a hollandaise sauce.

Our recipe has the english muffin base, a poached egg, but instead of reaching for hollandaise, we opted for another Texas favorite, queso cheese. 

We love how Thomas’ English Muffins are just so toppable with any flavor combination from sweet, to salty, to savory.
