Recipe : Eggs Benedict with Smoked Salmon and Home made Hollandaise Sauce

Today I have a not so healthy recipe for you! This was my Sunday brunch with Dan, and it was so yummy! Sunday brunch is a bit of a thing with Dan and I, and we always try and do something nice whenever we spend the weekend together. I don’t know about him but I always try and eat fairly healthy during the week so when I see him over the weekend, I can treat myself to something that’s maybe not as healthy.

This weekend it was eggs Benedict with smoked salmon and hollandaise sauce.

I’m not the best at photographing my food as normally I’m far too eager to eat it, but this tasted a lot better then it looked.

To make this you’ll need-

Muffins

Smoked Salmon Filletts

Eggs

For the Sauce-

125g butter

2 eggs yolks

½ tsp white wine vinegar or tarragon vinegar

pinch salt

splash ice cold water

lemon juice

cayenne pepper

I have actually pinched the sauce recipe from BBC Good Food, which I’ll link you to as I don’t want to plagiarise! you can find the recipe here

A little tip with the eggs, I find that poaching eggs in a frying pan is actually loads easier then a pan (as they have less space to sing and make a mess) and also adding a splash of white wine vinegar helps to bind the egg. I usually poach mine for 3/4 minutes.

So toast the muffins, pop the salmon fillets on top, then the eggs then drizzle the sauce.

Let me know if you try this recipe!
