      This WAS a Sunday Brunch treat for us Caro! GORGEOUS! I used wholewheat muffins in place of biscuits and did not add the avocado, but DID add the Rocket (Arugula) which was a GREAT addition. I made my own Hollandaise sauce and used some frozen chopped chives, as my garden is frozen right now! We had TWO small eggs each and we BOTH absolutely LOVED was quick too, as I already had chopped cooked ham! Made for the Aussie/NZ Recipe swap and another one on the list for Xmas Morn'! Merci, FT:-)
