Perfectly Balanced Breakfast
 
Preparation: 5 minutes
Cook time: 5 minutes
Serves: 1
 
Ingredients
2 large British Lion eggs
1 medium thick slice wholegrain bread
60g curly lettuce, washed
50g/2oz sliced smoked salmon
1 (200ml) glass of cranberry juice
Cracked black pepper to serve
 
Method

  1. Fill a small frying pan with water to a depth of 5cm and heat until it is just simmering. One at a time, crack the eggs and drop them into the hot water, then reduce the heat so the water is gently bubbling. Poach for 3-4 minutes or until the eggs are cooked to your liking
  2. Meanwhile, toast the bread and place on a plate, drape the smoked salmon on top and heap the lettuce to one side
  3. Using a slotted spoon, carefully lift the eggs from the water and place them on top of the salmon. Top with cracked pepper and serve immediately with a glass of cranberry juice

 
Don’t forget to look for the British Lion!  All eggs bearing the Lion Quality mark are laid by British hens that have been vaccinated against salmonella, giving you the assurance that the eggs have been produced to the highest food safety standards.
