I like to make breakfast on Saturday mornings. Usually I'll make some kind of fry-up in the English style, but this week we have special guests with us and they deserved a little something special. My mother-in-law Carol, Mary Matthews and her daughter Carly are staying with us, and it's a ton of fun.
Last week in the Guardian there was a special section on the best breakfasts in the UK, and there were recipes in the back. I tinkered with one and came up with what you see below. Eggs Benedict with English bacon and asparagus, fried potatoes and baked beans (try the beans with breakfast--they're great). It was my first Hollandaise sauce--I made it from scratch--and even my chef mother-in-law said it was pretty good.
