day 275, and day 5 with steve. sunday morning and i woke up feeling like a fancy breakfast. to be honest i have been thinking about eggs benedict for a couple days now since finding a bag of hollandaise sauce in the cupboard while getting ingredients together for an earlier creation. todays creation came from izzy brodsky and repinned to kirstys recipe must do pinterest board.
the originating website wasnt a recipe as such, but lets face it, eggs benedict is pretty simple and all about the hollandaise sauce and snappy execution.
|it looks like a ridiculous amount of silverbeet/spinach.....but it does reduce down a lot!|
|eggs are on so only a few minutes to get everything else ready|
while the eggs and silverbeet/spinach were cooking, the sossies and ham were being reheated on the bbq (we use the bbq almost every day all year round). with everything ready it was time to plate up. here is where individual taste comes in.....from the top:
- polly likes a bit of parsley but no hollandaise sauce
- ben wanted the sauce but does not like parsley
- kirsty got the ham instead of left over bbq sausage
- steve got the lot
|all plated up and ready to eat|
outcome: this was awesome. who doesn't like having this kind of quality breakfast on a sunday morning? in NZ you could pay $10-15 for this in a cafe so it is definitely worth the little bit of effort at home. at risk of sounding like im blowing my own trumpet, the image i took below is the best i have seen for eggs benedict on pinterest. im looking forward to seeing it plastered all over pinterest in the coming weeks.
|cafe quality if you ask me|
