Serves: 1 people

Preparation Time: 35 minutes

Cooking Time: 10 minutes


Whisk egg yolks along with the tarragon vinegar in a clean bowl over a double boiler until a creamy texture forms, and the whisk leaves a trail. Slowly add the melted butter, very slowly in the beginning, until you have a thick creamy consistency. To check, test by seeing if it will coat the back of a spoon.
Add a pinch of salt, a squeeze of lemon and a teaspoon of wholegrain mustard, stir and put to one side.

In a hot pan, add a drizzle of olive oil followed by the slices of thin bacon, after 30 seconds, turn. When golden remove the bacon. While the pan is still warm, slice the English muffin in half and pop in until toasted. Poach your eggs in a pot of lightly boiling water with 2 tablespoons of vinegar.
Once cooked to your liking, remove from the water and place on a sheet of kitchen paper to remove any excess water.

Mix your herbs and leaves along with slices of mushrooms, slivers of celery and grated mature cheddar. Drizzle with a little olive oil a pinch of salt and pepper.
Place the toasted muffin on the plate, dress with the greens and slices of bacon. Add the eggs and spoon over a good helping of the Hollandaise sauce

Pairing Suggestion


If this dish is for a brunch it’s best paired with our famous MCC or Chardonnay.
