Weekends are all about breakfast in bed. Top tip from our gluten free bakers; for this recipe the fresher the eggs the better as it ensures they retain their shape during the cooking process… and most importantly for your Instagram picture you will post shortly after.
|2||Ciabattine / Ciabatta|
|1 tsp||olive oil|
|4 pieces of||bacon|
|4 tbsp||gluten free Hollandaise sauce|
|black pepper, freshly ground|
- Cut the tomatoes in half. Season the tomato halves and scatter with herbs.
- Drizzle the tomatoes with a little olive oil and place under a preheated medium grill for ten minutes along with the bacon rashers.
- Meanwhile, fill a large, shallow pan with water (about 3cm deep) and bring to a simmer.
- Add some vinegar (1 tbsp per 1 litre of water) to help the eggs hold their shape.
- Then break the eggs into separate small cups (again to help maintain their shape when they're placed in the pan).
- Gently tip the eggs into the simmering water and poach for 2-3 minutes.
- Slice the rolls in half and lightly toast.
- Warm the Hollandaise sauce in a bowl in the microwave or in a small pan, depending on pack instructions.
- To serve, place one tomato half on top of each half roll.
- Break up two slices of the grilled bacon and sprinkle on top of the tomato.
- Once the eggs are poached, drain them with a draining spoon and place on top of each tomato.
- Spoon a tablespoon of Hollandaise sauce onto the eggs and top each with half a slice of bacon.
- Garnish with the fresh herb leaves (optional).
