It's not all about chocolate eggs this Easter...


Eggs are an essential part of the Easter bank holiday weekend, but they don't have to be made of chocolate.

That's the message from the British Free Range Egg Producers Association which is reminding shoppers that there are hundreds of free recipes available to them online at www.lovefreerangeeggs.co.uk

From the lazy bank holiday breakfast to the show-stopping Easter celebration cake, free range eggs are one of the most versatile and essential ingredients in the kitchen.

Whether you've got a dish in mind or you're in need of inspiration, the Love Free Range Eggs website has a huge array of recipes supplied by some of the country's most famous chefs such as Delia Smith, Valentine Warner and Anthony Worrall Thompson.

Log on now to get inspired.

Why not try this recipe for Easter? The perfect eggs Benedict for four people...

Ingredients

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

Method

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.
