  4. Make sure you reduce the hit as soon as you see the steam, do not allow it to boil, just keep it steady hot.
  5. Break each egg and Put each egg into a small cup or rosette
  6. If you have egg circles, tip each egg into each circle slowly, from a low hight
  7. If you don’t have egg rings, take a soft spatula and mix the water in the pan so it forms a loop, with another hand sink an egg from the cup into the loop, with two spatulas form egg white into the circle.
  8. Do the same thing with every egg until all in. Please note, the water has to be very hot but not simmering or boiling, or white with spread everywhere
  9. Constantly touch your eggs with the finger, to make sure they still soft not too firm, or it won’t’ be semi runny inside.
  10. As soon as eggs ready, take them out one by one into the flat platter covered with 5 sheets of paper towel.

Roman Grilled Vegetables:

  1. Wash the vegetable, half all the cherry tomatoes,

  3. Cut your chillies into 4 quarters lengthwise
  4. Half each garlic clove

  6. Add 9 spice and salt and drizzle with olive oil

  8.  **while veggies are in the oven, move onto hollandaise sauce
  9. Take the pan out, mix it well add some more olive oil if needed, put it back into the oven for another 7-10 minutes, butch it.
  10. Take the pan out one more time, if veggies look soft and covered in thick veggie juice and golden, add some rocket to it toss it in the pan, mix it with the tongs spreading the rocket amongst the veggies, leave it to rest.

Hollandaise Sauce:

  4. In the stainless steel bowl combine 3 egg yolks, 1 tsp of mustard, 1.5 tbsp of cold water, 1 pinch of salt, 1 pinch of 9 spice or black pepper, 1 tbsp of apple cider vinegar or lemon juice (after trying bote we did stick with apple cider vinegar )
  5. Whisk it vigorously until swollen in size
  6. Put the bowl over the boiling pot of water and keep whisking until thickened and warmer than warm but cooler than hot.
  7. The trick is you do not keep the bowl on the boiling pot all the time, you are 1 minute on, one minute of and so on until thickened. The thickness should be like yoghurt.


  1. Toast the wholegrain English muffin splits or two small pieces of bread
  2. On the plate lay down toasties following by poached eggs, salmon topping it off with hollandaise sauce. Complete it with a spoon of grilled veggies on the side or how you like it.

This Roman Eggs Benedict is our favourite lunch recipe which we’ve been mastering to the perfection for quite a while now.

 First, it was just a challenge of how.. to make this hollandaise sauce to come out right, then when we’ve got a hang of it and started improvising to make it with different flavours, In the end, we all agreed that the ‘truffle flavour is the one!

Nevertheless, what could be better than the Eggs benedict made in your own kitchen!  I must admit that this hollandaise sauce is extremely delicious and quite easy to make, we are giving away some tricks on how to make it perfect every time!

This is our Weekend special lunch meal which we are always looking forward to, it’s our cheat meal to die for and that’s our way to finish the week!

 Here we have combined our Eggs benedict with the grilled veggies with exotic flavours to give you a little bit of Roman experience. It definitely does go well with the creaminess of the eggs and hollandaise sauce, it brings some spicy tomato and sweet peppery flavours into this dish curling it with a little more sophistication.

Even though it seems like a tricky dish to cook it is actually not if you organise everything prior to it. You can also equip yourself with a partner in crime to make this dish faster while having some fun!
