Here is an Eggs Benedict recipe. For myself, I can think of no nicer breakfast treat.
How about treating your loved on to the perfect Eggs Benedict?
4 happy eggs
1 tsp white wine vinegar
Pinch of black cracked pepper
juice of half a lemon
4 slices Parma ham
2 English muffins
In a bowl, whisk 2 egg yolks, lemon juice and vinegar.
In a small saucepan, melt the butter on a gentle heat, the butter should foam as it burns-off the water. As soon as the foaming starts to reduce, pour it (in a slow trickle) in to the egg mixture, whilst whisking. Continue whisking until the butter is fully combined. Add a pinch of salt to season.
To cook the perfect poached egg
Poach 2 happy eggs. A great trick, to hold the egg together when cooking, is to place the whole egg (shell on) in simmering water for 10 seconds, then place it in cold water until it’s cool enough to touch. Next, crack it open and place into simmering water and cook for 3 minutes. Add a few drops of vinegar to the water too.
Split and toast the English muffins, butter them and place on a plate. Arrange the ham on top followed by the poached eggs and a generous helping of hollandaise sauce. Top with a sprinkle of cracked black pepper.
