Crab Cake Old Bay Caramelized Onion Benedict Over A Toasted Bagel Baltimore Orioles MLB Recipe Series IMG_2015

I had a dream.  A dream that brought together the wonderful world of crab cakes and bagels.  A dream that topped said world with the gluttony of a poached egg, an old bay caramelized onion hollandaise sauce, and the addition of a few bacon strips.   It was a dream that we made a reality and the result was a meal of such perfection that labeling it as breakfast, lunch, or dinner would be an injustice to its essence.

So make yourself a bloody mary, crack open a beer, or pop the cork of a bottle of wine because this addition to the MLB Recipe Series and representing the Baltimore Orioles is going to blow your mind just like infinity times infinity…

  • 4 egg yolks
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice
  • 1 medium onion

    This it too funny I was working on a design for a Crab Cake Benedict using Hatch Peppers yesterday! Your Baltimore Orieole looks wonderful! I love the Old Bay Caramelized Onion Hollandaise Sauce. GREAT job!!

  2. Judy @Savoring Today says:

    It would be hard to pass up anything with oozing egg yolks and crab cakes … then there’s the bacon! Yes, you’ve done it again–heavenly!

    • Jed Gray says:

      We’ve been on a little bit of an oozing egg yolk kick, but is that really a bad thing?? 😉

  3. The Mom Chef ~ Taking on Magazines One Recipe at a Time says:

    I’m drooling. I love crab cakes and eggs benedict just happens to be my most favorite breakfast. You’ve just married two glorious flavors. Yeah, I’m happy.

    • Jed Gray says:

      It is soo soo good Christiane. I hope you’re able to try the hollandaise at the very least.

    Jedly…

    Have you been having problems with your website lately?

    There are a few email feeds (URLs) that I can’t access.

  5. Norma Chang says:

    I too am having problem accessing your website.
    Great dish, could have it anytime of the day.

  6. ChgoJohn says:

    A crab cake and a poached egg would have been enough for me, Jed. Using them as a basis for eggs Benedict while serving them atop a toasted bagel was truly inspired. Best of all, you didn’t substitute the bacon with crab but used them both! How positively glutinous of you. :)

  7. Jeff Greenberg says:

    This would have been perfect this morning. Somehow my plain fried egg didn’t compare…

  8. Karen (Back Road Journal) says:

    Now that is a hearty and delicious way to start the day.

  9. Kitchen Belleicious says:

    oh i want those crab cakes right now! Insanely delish

  10. Raymund says:

    Wow that is so oozing with flavour

    […] To celebrate the month of love, we’re dedicating all of February to our appreciation of aioli.  Whether its for spreading or dipping aioli can be the perfect compliment/enhancement to any food, transforming the “Acceptable” to the “Gluttonous”…remember our Caramelize Onion Old Bay Aioli for this recipe???
