Ingredients

  • 4 English muffins

  • 4 Rashers of bacon

  • 4 Eggs

  • For the Blender Hollandaise Sauce
  • 3 egg yolks

  • 2 tbsp tbsp lemon juice

  • 150 g butter – melted

  • 1 Salt and pepper

Directions

  • For the Hollandaise sauce: This is really simple and can be made the night before.
  • Place egg yolks, lemon juice, salt and pepper in a blender or processer and process until pale and smooth.
  • Tilt the processor to increase the depth of the liquid, allowing the blades to really beat or whisk the mixture so it coagulates. Propping a book or chopping board under one edge works well.
  • Very slowly pour in the melted butter while blender motor is running. The mixture should remain thick and pale.
  • Gently reheat in a bowl set over simmering water.
  • To assemble: Simply grill, fry or microwave the bacon rashers, toast the muffins and poach the eggs.
  • Place the bacon onto a toasted muffin half, top with a poached egg, add a spoonful of hollandaise sauce and a grind of black pepper.
