salt and pepper
A firm favourite with The Real Meal Revolution, this is the Banting man’s version of Egg’s Benedict but better. Instead of using butter for the hollandaise, you use the fat from frying the bacon. Whoever thought of using bacon fat to make mayonnaise should be knighted. As you embark on Banting, you might find yourself shedding a tear or two for all the bacon fat you˜ve drained onto paper towel over the years. This recipe is perfect for a special occasion or perhaps a good ˘healing˙ meal on a morning after a night before because it takes slightly longer than a quick flash in the pan and the methods are slightly more complex. You will need time.
Note: A tip for the best poached eggs – use the freshest you can find, they hold their shape the best.
A tip for making baconnaise or hollandaise – if the mixture gets too thick, add a few drops of hot water.
If it starts splitting, do the same and keep whisking. If it splits completely, start again with the lemon, egg yolk and mustard and use the split sauce as the butter in the first round – pouring it in slowly.
