The Perfect Eggs Benedict

The Perfect Eggs Benedict

It’s National Egg Week, so we’ve put together an absolutely cracking Eggs Benedict recipe from our  #BoozyBloggersBrunch for you to try at home! Great with salmon or bacon, these eggs are fantastic for a brunch with friends, and are perfect for those sleepy Sunday’s, when all you fancy is a bit of breakfast in bed!

Constructing that bad boy…






















Poached eggs


2 x Clarence Court Burford Brown Eggs


Water up to boil in deep pan

Crack the egg into a small ramekin

Swirl the water using a whisk to create a vortex

Turn the temperature of the pan down until there are no bubbles rising from the middle

Create another vortex in the water using the whisk

Let the water slow down until the vortex is almost flat

Drop the full egg straight into the centre of the vortex from the ramekin

Once the egg turned has white (but not completely set), turn the temperature up to a simmer

When the egg white has set, lift out it out of the pan with a slotted spoon and place on a paper towel


Hollandaise Sauce


1 Clarence Court egg yolk

1 cap Belazu Chardonnay vinegar

50g butter



Place the egg yolk and vinegar in a glass bowl over a Bain Marie and whisk until the yolks thicken and get to a creamy and light consistency.  Gradually whisk in the butter a cube at a time until all combined.

Season to taste.

N.B. If doubling the quantity add the 2nd cap of vinegar to taste at the end

* To take this Hollandaise to the next level, drizzle in a cap of Truffle Hunterstruffle oil to taste at the end
