Major's Kitchen shares his recipe with us!
- 2 bagels, toasted
- Rocket or baby spinach leaves
- 200g bacon, cooked to your liking.. crispy, always crispy
- 2 XL free range eggs
- 3 egg yolks
- 1 tbsp lemon juice
- 1 tsp Dijon mustard
- 1/4 tsp salt
- pinch of sweet paprika or cayenne pepper
- 1/2 cup butter, melted
Make the hollandaise sauce
Add the egg yolks, lemon juice, salt and paprika to a glass jug and blend for 10 seconds with a stick blender. Melt the butter in the microwave until very hot. About 1 minute. Slowly pour the hot butter into the egg yolk mixture with the blender running. You should be left with a smooth rich sauce. This can also be done in a food processor.
Toast the bagels and fry the bacon.
Poach the eggs
Get a pot of water to the boil and then drop down to a bare simmer. Add in a 1tbsp white vinegar. Carefully crack an egg into a fine mesh strainer so that the thin whites drain away and you are only left with the yolk and firm white. Pour the egg into a ramekin. Using a spoon, carefully create a swirling vortex in the pot and drop the egg into the center. Let the egg poach for 3 minutes for a running yolk. Carefully remove with a slotted spoon.
Assemble the bagel with the rocket, bacon, hollandaise and a pinch of sweet paprika.
Enjoy with all the great women on your life.
