Laura’s Posh Breakfast Recipe

Monday, October 3rd, 2011

Breakfast, as we all know, is the most  important meal of the day – and shouldn’t be missed! In this recipe video, University of Leicester student Laura shows us how to make a breakfast fit for a king – and it’s all ready in 20 mins!

POSH EGGS FLORENTINE & BERRY GOOD SMOOTHIE

Serves: 1-2
Prep time: 5 mins
Cooking time: 10 mins

Ingredients:
For the smoothie
• 1 and ½ cups of frozen mixed berries
• 1 and ½ cups of fresh orange juice

For the Eggs Florentine
• 2 eggs
• 2 English muffins
• Olive oil
• 150g fresh spinach
• Ground black pepper

Method:
1) Smoothie time: Before you crack on with your egg dish (haha) you might as well make your smoothie. Simply chuck all the ingredients in a blender and whizz up until you get a nice drinking consistency (about 30 seconds) – refreshingly fruity!
2) Now for the posh dish: Prepare the spinach by heating a pan – when it’s hot add a splash of olive oil and throw in the spinach. Turn it over with tongs/a fork for 1-2 mins until wilted. Tip into a colander or sieve and squeeze out any excess liquid. Return to the pan and keep warm.
3) Preheat the grill. To poach the eggs, bring a pan of water to the boil and add 2 tsp white wine vinegar. When simmering gently crack the eggs and slip them into the water WITHOUT breaking the yolks. Poach for about 3 mins or until the whites are set but the yolks are still soft.
4) Meanwhile slice the muffin in half and toast in a toaster.
5) Put the spinach on each muffin half and warm under the grill.
6) When the eggs are done lift them out with a slotted spoon and pat dry on kitchen paper. Place one egg on each muffin half, season with black pepper and enjoy!
