Recipe by Um Safia
READY IN: 10mins




  • Heat the grill / broiler. Put a large pan of water to boil over a high heat. As soon as the water starts boiling, reduce heat so the water is just simmering.
  • Poach the eggs: crack one egg into a cup and gently slip the egg into the water. Place the 3 remaining eggs into the water using the same cup method, making sure to keep the eggs away from each other. Immediately turn the heat down to it's lowest setting & time the eggs for 3 minutes.
  • Split the muffins & toast under the grill / or in a toaster.
  • Make the Hollandaise: Heat the butter in a small pan or in the microwave, until it is bubbling & totally liquid. Do not let the butter brown.
  • Crack the remaining eggs into a blender, put the lid on & leave the spout / hole open. Start the blender & pour the butter through the spout / hole in a steady stream - this will thicken the eggs. Add the lemon juice & season well to your taste with freshly milled blackk pepper & salt.
  • Place the split muffins on 2 plates ( 2 half muffins on each plate).
  • Top the muffin halves with the smoked salmon.
  • Drain the poached eggs & place one on each muffin half.
  • Spoon a little hollandaise sauce over each egg & serve immediately.
