Lula Cafe

We went over to Lula CafĂ© at 2537 North Kedzie Avenue in Logan Square only to find out that their menu had changed – no eggs Benedict - which on the internet looked fantastic: poached farm eggs on an English muffin with duck confit, klug farm asparagus, tallegio, and mustard hollandaise.
The waitress suggested something close – a breakfast sandwich made with the same ingredients except the base was pulled pork.

This was the most unusual and delicious breakfast I’ve had in awhile.

What I LOVED most? The English muffins were really thin. That gets me excited about making my own when I taste some that are this good. I would go back – half way across town I might add – just for the English muffins.

Also, the hollandaise sauce was wonderful. It had mustard seeds added that gave it an extra dimension.

I made my own this morning using leftover pulled pork and grilled asparagus from the night before. Instead of the English muffins – which I could not find – I toasted an Arnold brand sandwich thin. In my hollandaise sauce, I added mustard seeds and a little Herbs de Provence. I liked the addition of the Herbs de Provence.

I’ll try making homemade English muffins sometime soon – super-thin like Lula’s- because they absolutely made this breakfast!

Bon Appetit!
