Eggs Royale-Benedict… the best of both worlds.
I was very spoilt with a lovely brunch yesterday, no expense spared. Smoked salmon, poached eggs, spinach, hollandaise, grilled bacon and tomatoes, all on a toasted muffin. We also made a horseradish and creme fresh sauce to mix things up a bit! This sauce makes a great accompaniment to smoked salmon, try it on toasted ciabatta with cress and a squeeze of lemon- makes a lovely sharing board or ‘help yourself’ lunch. We’ve also mastered the art of cooking multiple poached eggs – use a deep frying pan (filled with water!) and gently break each egg around the outside; no scraggly bits!
I even got the teapot out… to find that it was a champagne flute I required instead!
If you can’t treat yourself on your birthday, when can you?!
