Created in the 1920s at Delmonico's restaurant in New York City, this dish traditionally uses ham or bacon and a rich butter sauce. Here, a lower-fat yogurt and chive hollandaise contrasts with the richness of poached eggs and lean Parma ham, to make a lighter, but equally special version.

This is a no-fuss, easy recipe. The sauce is simply put together in a blender - no double boiling necessary. Assemble eggs with sauce over hot buttered muffins with bacon, or if you prefer, Serrano ham. Yum!

Ok, not one twist, but two. This is no average eggs benedict recipe, it uses smoked salmon and rye bread, as opposed to ham, bacon and breakfast muffins. The sauce can be made up to one hour in advance, when ready to serve, reheat gently in a double boiler.

Eggs Benedict is a breakfast delight and so easy to make. Use your favourite bagels as the base instead of the traditional muffin, and adorn with rich hollandaise sauce and some fresh rocket.
