This is my favourite breakfast ever. There’s a lot of butter in the sauce, but I have no issue with having a bit of what you fancy. It keeps you sane and makes you feel good; it’s more a question of how often you have it, and what the rest of your diet and lifestyle are like. As a treat, this takes some beating!


Quantity Ingredient
splash vinegar
3 eggs
75g butter
1/4 lemon, juiced
1 wholemeal english muffin
4 slices smoked salmon
sea salt
black pepper


  1. Bring a small saucepan of water to a simmer, reduce the heat so that the water is barely bubbling and add the vinegar. Crack two of the eggs, one at a time, into a cup, then slide them gently into the water. Poach for 4 minutes.
  2. Make the hollandaise sauce. Melt the butter in a small pan. Put 1 egg yolk and the lemon juice in a small blender or food processor. Once the butter has melted, process the egg and lemon juice on a slow speed to break them up. Add the melted butter teaspoon by teaspoon, then, as the mixture begins to combine, slowly pour in the remaining butter. Once all the butter has been added, increase the speed and process until thickened. Season with salt and pepper.
  3. Meanwhile, slice the muffin in half and toast both halves. Place 2 smoked salmon slices on each toasted muffin half. Top each one with a poached egg, then smother the lot in gorgeous hollandaise.

Good for:

  • Skin health, exercise recovery

Star ingredient:

  • Eggs are the perfect breakfast food, a very superior source of protein, minerals, choline, lutein and all manner of goodies. For a long time they were branded as dietary baddies, but we now know that they’re true dietary heroes.
