Breakfasts / Dinners / Lunches

This was one of those dishes that was made by just shoving everything in a pan and ended up being a delicious weekend brunch. Although we had this as brunch, you could easily have it for lunch or an evening meal. The ingredients list below may look quite big but just do as I did and throw in what you have at home. That way you don’t need to buy lots of ingredients and you will […]

Happy New Year! This brunch was much needed to ease the Hogmanay hangover and when I say brunch, it was essentially a late afternoon lunch by the time I managed to get out of bed. I have never made hollandaise sauce before. I planned to make it on Christmas day but got too caught up with my presents. There are a number of recipes around for hollandaise sauce.
