National Lobster Newburg Day | Lobster Newburg – The Foodie Patootie

National Lobster Newburg Day | Lobster Newburg

In addition to National Waffle Day and National Pecan Day, it’s National Lobster Newburg Day. Welcome to Tuesday!

I’ve never made Lobster Newburg before, but I’ve had my eye on the prize for quite some time. It looks like the perfect breakfast or dinner. Reminiscent of eggs benedict, I actually did enjoy this for breakfast. Lucky me!

Lobster Newburg via | #lobster #recipe #foodholidayI used lobster tail meat because it was on sale, but any lobster meat will do.

There is a standing debate between my husband and I- what is the best shellfish? Well, my answer is shrimp, but unfortunately, Mike is allergic so he doesn’t know what he’s missing out on. Then, for me, it’s a tossup between crab and lobster. I guess I’d have to say that I like lobster better if you are using butter for both, but plain, crab wins. So I think that means they truly are tied.

Anyway, whenever I have to make lobster (you know, because it’s SUCH a chore…NOT), I’m very happy. You can be happy too by making this. #Truth

    Seriously…anything with sherry…and lobster and you’ve got me drooling. I can’t even take it. This sounds and look so amazing. And I’m so freaking obsessed with shellfish that it’s always a toss up…but scallops and lobster usually take the cake for me…then again, I do loooove crab. And rock shrimp is just divine. Ok, I love it all. I am so making this dish btw. Wow.
