One of my favourite things to do on a weekend is to have a lazy brunch. Sure, there are many favourites in the city, but people appreciate nothing more than waking up to a delicious breakfast.
One of the most impressive things I like to make is Eggs Benedict. But that Hollandaise sauce is really a pain to whip up. So I make a Lazy Benedict:
-8 slices of English muffin/crumpet/bread ( whatever you feel like)
-1 cup yoghurt or sour cream
-1 can of salmon
-1 tablespoon each of chopped parsley and green onion
-salt and pepper
Toast bread or muffin while you:
Fill a large deep sauce pan with water and bring to boil. Then turn the heat down to a bare simmer. Add 1/4 C of white vinegar. Crack an egg into a cup and carefully slide it into the water. Repeat with remaining eggs. Cook for 3-5 minutes until the yolks are to the desired doneness.
Drain eggs on paper towel.
Mix salmon, sour cream, parsley, salt and pepper in a bowl.
Assemble the toast by putting an egg and salmon mixture on top. Sprinkle with extra parsley to decorate your masterpiece.
