    Treat yourself to a classic eggs Benedict for late breakfast or brunch. Poached eggs served on top of buttered toast with ham and homemade hollandaise sauce. You can change it up by using bacon, smoked salmon or spinach instead of ham.

    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 classic dish that is great for a Sunday brunch. To get that delicious hollandaise you have to use the best ingredients, so I use Kerrygold butter as it gives a pure taste that cannot be beaten. New Kerrygold block, now softer is also great for spreading onto the toast before topping with your egg, and tastes great!’

    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!
