A mouthful of Mark does Eggs Royale

Eggs Royale

  • 2 muffins (sliced in half and lightly toasted)
  • 4 slices smoked salmon
  • 1 avocado (cut in half, seed removed and then sliced lengthways)
  • 4 eggs
  • Cracked black pepper
  • Lemon juice

Method:
Bring a large pan of water with a good splash of white wine vinegar to the boil.  Whilst the water is coming to the boil, toast your muffins.  Top the muffins with a slice of smoked salmon and several pieces of the avocado, squeeze some lemon juice over the top and a grind of black pepper.  Once the water has come to the boil, drop each egg into the water (keeping some distance between each egg) and let them cook for 3 minutes, once done, remove with a slotted spoon and place each egg on top of the muffins and crack a bit more black pepper over the top.

At the moment I am on a roll with poached eggs, I never knew they were so simple to make!  None of this swirling the water around when dropping the eggs in, just plonk them in, it works a treat!  Poached eggs have now become a Sunday breakfast staple, I just need to come up with different variations to try so watch this space.
