A classic Sunday breakfast in our house. We fry our eggs as it’s easier than poaching.

Ingredients (serves 2)

  • 2 eggs room temperature
  • 1 English muffin
  • 2 slices ham
  • 1 Serve: Hollandaise sauce:
  • 1 Tbsp white wine vinegar
  • 2 egg yolks
  • 150 g of cooled melted butter
  • 1 Tbsp lemon juice


  1. Make the hollandaise sauce first: Blitz vinegar and egg yolks in a food processor. With motor running, then slowly add add the butter in a thin stream. Stir in the lemon juice. When blended, transfer to a bowl and season with salt and pepper. Cover the bowl with cling wrap and set aside.
  2. Heat frypan with a dash of oil, then fry eggs. Meanwhile, toast muffins.
  3. Plate up muffins with ham, top with fried egg then drizzle over sauce.


Mix up this classic by adding slices of avocado to the ham and egg, and a dash of paprika in lieu of salt and pepper.

  • Eggs Benedict with ham is one of my favourite breakfast meals. My first choice from the menu when we go out for breakfast on a Sunday. Now that we cannot I will have to make it myself using this recipe. Thank you.


  • Sounds good would love to try never tried hollandaise sauce so would be interesting, thanks


  • adding avocado actually sounds like a great idea! it would be a nice change. thanks for sharing your idea


  • I pour boiling butter into the eggs so it cooks them.


  • Eggs Benny – always a hit for Sunday brunch!


  • I would love this


  • Eggs benny is one of my favourite breakfast dishes – just so divine on the weekends.


  • This looks like an awesome Saturday brunch, I often get a similar dish at a local cafe this is cafe style food at its best. THANKYOU for sharing I look forward to making this dish.

    • So much cheaper and better at home and you get to stay in PJ’s!

      • Haha, agreed. They definitely taste better when you’re relaxing in your PJs at home!

      • And it looks so delicious too

      • Staying in PJs is what we call a “lazy day”
        I didn’t realise Hollandaise Sauce had raw egg in it. Does the white wine vinegar kill off any risk of salmonellaz/


  • Oh! This is something I’d love to eat right now!! :-)


  • Look’s like a delicous Sunday breakfast! We would also fry oue eggs as well! Thanks.
