Recipe

Ingredients

  • 8 thin slices of Prosciutto
  • 2 tbsp. (30ml) olive oil
  • 2 cloves of garlic, thinly sliced
  • 2 bunches of spinach, trimmed and washed
  • ¼ cup (65ml) white wine vinegar
  • 2 tbsp. (30g) black peppercorns
  • 1 shallot, peeled and finely chopped
  • 2 sprigs of tarragon
  • 2 egg yolks
  • 200g unsalted butter, melted
  • Kosher salt and freshly cracked black pepper
  • ¼ cup (65ml) white vinegar
  • 8 eggs
  • 4 English muffins, halved, toasted and buttered

Directions

  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit.
  • Place the prosciutto slices on a parchment lined baking sheet and bake for 5-10 minutes until golden brown and crispy. Remove and set a side.
  • Heat a large frying pan over medium high heat and add the olive oil and the sliced garlic. Cook for 2 minutes until golden brown, then add the spinach and cook for 3-4 minutes until wilted. Season with salt and pepper.
  • Meanwhile combine the vinegar, peppercorns, shallot and tarragon in a small saucepan over low heat. Bring to a simmer and cook, uncovered, for 5 minutes and strain through a fine sieve.
  • Combine vinegar reduction and egg yolks in a medium heatproof bowl over a saucepan half-filled with summering water and whisk together.
  • Gently stream in the melted butter, whisking constantly until thick and creamy to make a hollandaise. Season with salt and pepper.
  • In a deep frying pan, filled with water, add the white vinegar and bring to a gentle simmer. Poach the eggs in the water for 2-3 minutes and remove with a slotted spoon.
  • Place the toasted English muffins on serving plates, top with the crispy prosciutto, spinach and poached eggs. Drizzle with the hollandaise and finish with black pepper.
