Eggs Benedict with Bacon..

Perfect if you fancy treating family and friends to an extra special breakfast. We’d, of course, always recommend using tasty spoiltpig bacon instead of ham – smoke or unsmoked.

What you'll need:

  • 1 pack of Dry Cured Unsmoked Back Bacon 250g
  • 4 eggs
  • 2 teaspoons white vinegar
  • 2 English muffins
  • 10 tablespoons butter 3 egg yolks
  • 3 egg yolks
  • 1 tabslespoon lemon juice
  • salt and pepper
  • parsley for garnish

How to prepare:

Grill the bacon until cooked as preferred and set aside on kitchen roll. Whilst this is cooking, boil a large saucepan of water and add the vinegar. Bring to the boil again and then reduce the heat to allow to simmer.

For the hollandaise, you will need a blender. Melt the butter and set aside. Put the 3 egg yolks, the lemon juice and a couple of pinches of salt into the blender and mix on medium speed for about a minute. Then turn the speed to low and slowly add the hot melted butter until it has blended into a smooth sauce. Set it aside.

Now crack the eggs, one at a time, into a cup and drop it into the water carefully. Typically, a soft poached egg should take no more than 2 minutes, but it will depend on the pan you’re using. Whilst they are cooking, toast the muffins.

Now put it all together! Butter one side of the muffin, top with 2 slices of spoiltpig unsmoked back bacon, put a poached egg on top and pour the hollandaise over it all. Top with a sprig of pasley and serve.
