Eggs benedict
Serves: 4
Time: 25 minutes
Recipe by: Nicole Snelling

For the Hollandaise sauce:
4 large free range egg yolks
4 Tbsp Woolworths Pickling Condiment or white wine vinegar
200 g cold butter, cubed
Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste

To serve:
A squeeze of lemon juice
Smoked trout ribbons, for serving
Smoked ham slices, for serving
Free-range eggs, poached, for serving
Baby spinach, for serving
Woolworths English Muffins, toasted, for serving


To make the Hollandaise sauce, place the yolks and pickling condiment in a metal bowl and whisk. Place over a pot of simmering water, making sure that the water does not touch the bowl to prevent the eggs from scrambling. Whisk continuously over a low to medium heat until thick and pale. Gradually add the butter, allowing each cube to melt before you add the next. It should be smooth and silky.
Remove from the heat, season to taste and serve over toasted English muffins topped with baby spinach and soft poached eggs. Add smoked salmon or trout ribbons or smoked ham slices if you like.
