Breakfast Fit For A Queen

One of the things I wanted to do while the house was a little emptier was make some knock-out breakfasts. I love cereal, but if I could, I would have some sort of cooked every morning. Mmmmm.
My favourite of all breakfasts is Eggs Benedict and I am always on the lookout for restaurants who have it on their menu. While I love eating brekkie out (so totally indulgent and decadent!) I also love to cook and I have always been pretty keen to try my hand at making my own Eggs Benedict but the one thing that put me off, was making the hollandaise sauce which I've always been told is pretty difficult. So I figured that an empty house was probably the safest and calmest place I could attempt it.
With Joe on standby ready to poach the eggs and butter the muffins I looked up a recipe and got my ingredients together.
And I totally nailed it! No big deal.
I used this Delia Smith recipe for Hollandaise Sauce, toasted a couple of breakfast muffins, grilled some bacon and Joe poached the eggs. Oh and I completely forgot to take any photos, guess I'll just have to make it again next weekend, pity.

Apart from an impressive breakfast, my Saturday is going to be pretty quiet I think. Joe is feeling a little worse for wear after a few drinks with workmates last night and the weather is pretty grey, so we are going to snuggle up on the sofa and watch some football.
Oh and tonight, we are going to attempt this amazing looking Antonio Carluccio Bolognese. Fingers crossed we get some photo's this time!
Hope you are all having wonderful Saturdays.

From me, with love. x


  1. Hey cool! It is my absolute favourite in the world :) That's so great that it worked, I have always heard that it is really hard. You have inspired me to give it a try :)

  2. snuggling on the couch and watching tv/a movie is sometimes just the very best thing!

  3. I never wake up in time to make breakfast but hearing about others that do make me want to!
