National Eggs Benedict Day


Did you know that April 16 is National Eggs Benedict Day? The Huron House Bed & Breakfast is known for its delicious breakfasts and has quite the reputation for its Eggs Benedict served every Sunday. In fact, on April 16th, one of the innkeepers is scheduled to be on ABC-TV 12 in Flint, to share the tasty recipe of poached eggs, ham, and hollandaise sauce with viewers. While everyone has a different version of this flavorful dish, the Huron House tops it off with a stuffed hash brown in the shape of a flower.

Treat yourself to a luxurious stay at the Huron House for a delectable breakfast... and make sure to get the innkeeper's autograph! Here's a sneak peek at the Eggs Benedict recipe
