This morning, Food Net work posted this question on FB "What's your favorite brunch dish?"

I'm astonished at how many people said eggs benedict. I used to serve them here, but  a lot of guests didn't want the runny egg yolks.

Check out the responses. Very rarely does someone choose a sweet entree.

I like runny eggs; I like eggs B, but have never been tempted to serve them.  Easy to make, so I could, although real hollandaise doesn't hold well; there would be food waste.

We do get requests for eggs poached soft and eggs over-easy.  I can't remember more than one or two that asked for sunny-side up.  Our County health inspector wanted us to put a little notice on the breakfast bar: Consuming raw or undercooked eggs may increase your risk of foodborne illness.  Eggs “over easy” are considered undercooked.   ... OK

So what is the answer from us here, would we eat them? We would only eat them with eggs scrambled? I think there are people who have never had them, like there are people who have never eaten avocados, or huevos rancheros (which I saw on that list) or chorizo and eggs.

I pretty much would like any and all of those. I am not a big egg person, but in moderation I will eat them! I am happy with a breakfast jack! (wish we had jackinthebox here) we drive to NC to go to one.

I love Egg B.! Although I don't like my yolks too runny. When DH makes them he knows better. Same with "toad in the hole"

I do not mind a runny yolk but that white had best be cooked solid. I like eggs as long as there is no hot spices in them. Mom taught us to be "garbage cans" - there is not much we do not eat. But we did not grow up on spicy (Mexican  and Thai were NOT in WV in the 50s).

My dad visited me when I was in grad school, (my early days of gourmet mag.) and remarked at dinner that I was less of a connoisseur than a "common sewer"..... miss that sense of humor!

I haven't gotten a special request in ages, but one came in recently and it was for - you guessed it, Eggs B. 
I hadn't made it for a while due to the egg yoke issue, but when I made it for this group, not a drop was left on any plate. 

And the sweet vs savory, hands down most prefer savory here.

I have noticed eggs benedict is getting a lot of attention on all the food shows.  Flipping the tv today, I noticed a program showing six ways to vary them....  Just what is popular right now.  Last year waffles... I dislike runny eggs, and many places won't serve them without a warning.   I do wonder how many really eat them.

Well, to me brunch is brunch, not dessert either, so I would agree. 

Typically eggs bennie are brunch food, so that may be part of you response reasoning imo. Quiche. Made to order omelette.
