Bank Holiday Breakfast

Eggs Benedict
With Easy Hollandaise sauce

A real Sunday morning treat and a bit quicker to make with the easy Hollandaise sauce recipe. If you don't have Parma ham try ordinary baked, or boiled ham and grill it for a few minutes to crisp it.

Easy Hollandaise Sauce

2 lightly beaten egg yolks
2-3 tbsp lemon juice
125 g cold butter, cubed
Large pinch Cayenne pepper
Pinch of salt

Place all the ingredients in a pan and cook over a low heat, stirring constantly until the butter has melted and the sauce has slightly thickened.

6 Large eggs
6 tbsp Hollandaise sauce
12 slices Parma ham
3 breakfast muffins
Parsley or chives for garnish

Grill the Pancetta for a few minutes until crisp, set aside and keep warm.

Poach the eggs, in simmering water until the white of the egg is just set and the yolk soft.

Split the muffins and toast them both sides.

Lay 2 slices of Pancetta on each muffin half, top with a poached egg and finish off with 1 tbsp Hollandaise sauce over each egg.

Place under a hot grill for 15-20 seconds until the top is golden.

Serve straight away with a glass of fresh orange juice and steaming hot coffee.
