The ultimate weekend Brunch

Spoil yourself this weekend with Eggs Royale the ultimate weekend brunch.

Its a bit of a tradition in our house that Sundays are all about sharing a yummy breakfast, Its not surprising that we enjoy a slow start and its our favourite days of the week. Its the only day we don’t have anywhere be. Sundays for us usually start off with a big cup of tea in bed and then downstairs to make breakfast which more often than not involves pancakes (if the kids have their way).

Maybe you have a birthday or celebration coming up or just fancy a treat. Eggs Royale is a take on the classic American eggs benedict but instead of ham or bacon you replace it with smoked salmon. It really is a treat and can be easily doubled up if cooking for a bigger bunch.

It is a very yummy and a great treat for the weekend.

8 medium or large free range eggs

1 tbsp white wine vinegar

1 small bag of baby spinach
