On April 16, foodies of the U.S. observe “National Eggs Benedict Day.”  This day will see social media filled with hashtags shared by avid ‘grammers to showcase their Tumblr-worthy meals. However, Eggs Benedict is a dish that is enjoyed the world over, all year round. Traditionally, an ole’ Eggs Benny, as it is colloquially dubbed, will consist of poached eggs with hollandaise sauce, served with a side of bacon or ham over English muffins or toast.

However, similar to most other animal-product-heavy dishes – there’s a vegan version. Enjoy these nine recipes that show you how to whip up classic, cruelty-free eggs benedict for your next plant-based, hearty brunch.
