Breakfast Time!

On Father’s Day I presented Mr. Simply Homemade with a delicious breakfast of Eggs Benedict.

Eggs Benedict

Salt & Pepper

8 Bacon Rashers

25g Butter
¼ tsp nutmeg
4 eggs, at room temperature

1 Place a glass bowl over a pan of simmering water. Add the vinegar, whisk in the egg yolks.
2 Slowly whisk in the butter until it is creamy. Add lemon juice, salt & pepper to taste.
