1 large tomato, sliced horizontally
1tsp white wine vinegar
4 medium or large free range eggs
2 Seeded bagels, sliced in half
4 slices roast ham
4 heaped tablespoons hollandaise sauce
1. Heat the grill to high, season the cut sides of the tomatoes and grill for 3-4 minutes. Keep warm
2. To poach the eggs, bring a deep pan of water to the boil. Pour in the vinegar and break each egg into a separate ramekin. Turn the heat down a little, swirl the water to create a whirlpool and gently pour an egg into the centre of the whirlpool to create a round shape. Cook for 2-3 minutes, then remove with a slotted spoon to a warm plate. Repeat with the remaining eggs.
3. Meanwhile, toast the bagels and top each half with a slice of ham. When the eggs are all done, add a tomato half to each bagel, a poached egg and a spoonful of hollandaise sauce.
