Traditionally enjoyed during Chanukah, these savory treats have found a permanent place on breakfast tables year-round, often accompanied by salt beef and fresh green cucumbers.

With a little patience and effort, you can easily make latkes at home using a simple recipe. But if you prefer a hassle-free option, you can order freshly made latkes online from Forman’s chefs, who follow a generations-old family recipe. Warm them up in the oven, and then serve them with smoked salmon, sour cream, and a touch of keta caviar for an added touch of luxury.

Eggs Royale – English Muffins with Smoked Salmon, Poached Eggs, and Hollandaise

English Muffin with Smoked Salmon, Poached Eggs, and Hollandaise

Meet Eggs Royale, the pescatarian’s version of the beloved Eggs Benedict—and dare we say, even better than the original! The perfect Eggs Royale consists of three essential elements: a flawlessly poached egg with a luscious, runny yolk, a rich and creamy hollandaise sauce, and, of course, the finest quality smoked salmon available.

Preparing hollandaise sauce can be a bit tricky, but if you follow a reliable recipe step-by-step, you should be able to whip it up in no time. Take the smoked salmon out of the fridge ahead of time, allowing it to come up to temperature for the best flavor. Slice an English muffin in half, ready for toasting as soon as your eggs are in the water.

For the poached eggs, it’s crucial to use the freshest eggs possible. Older eggs might result in watery whites that won’t set properly. Bring a pot of water to a boil and then reduce it to a gentle simmer. Add a teaspoon of white vinegar to the water. Crack an egg into a small bowl and carefully slide it into the water, or if you’re feeling daring, crack the egg directly into the pot. Cook for 2 to 3 minutes until the egg white has set, but the yolk remains delightfully runny. Use a strainer to lift the poached eggs out of the water and place them on a sheet of kitchen towel.

To serve, butter your toasted English muffin halves and generously layer each one with London Cure Smoked Salmon. Carefully place a poached egg on top of each muffin half, followed by a drizzle of hollandaise sauce. Sprinkle with chopped chives and cracked black pepper, and voila! A brunch plate fit for the fanciest restaurant in town.
