Brown Sugar Bourbon Southern Benedict

My husband, Jeremy,  absolutely loves eggs benedict, but sadly, I don’t make them nearly enough.  When World Food Championships challenged us to create recipes using at least three sponsored ingredients, I fell in love with Brown Sugar Bourbon glazed pork tenderloin and Jeremy suggested using the left over pork in a Southern themed eggs benedict recipe. We layered each English muffin with Brown Sugar Bourbon pork tenderloin, crispy collard greens, poached eggs, and a simple blender hollandaise sauce, and surprisingly, it worked.  It worked really well.
