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.
