Eggs Benedict with Laverbread (I guess this would be Wyau Benedict a Bara Lawr)
(c)2011 Ian Oliver
  •  fry laverbread with bacon (fry small pieces of bacon in their own fat, until almost crispy, then add laverbread and fry until that is cooked)
  • place thick slice of ham (real ham!) on a muffin or half bagel
  • place fried laverbread and bacon on top
  • then a poached egg
  • then Hollandaise sauce over the top (seasoned with a little black pepper)
Hollandaise Sauce
A buttery sauce made from egg yolk, butter and a little lemon juice... 
Poached Eggs (properly)
  • boil water with a touch of vinegar and salt (helps keep the egg white together)
  • break egg, drop into boiling water for 2 to 2 1/2 minutes
  • take eggs out using slotted spoon - dry a little to remove excess water (most of which should evaporate)
  • the whites should be cooked and the yolks runny (!!)
