Ingredients

Healthy hollandaise sauce

  • 240 ml fat free Greek yogurt
  • 1 tbsp white wine vinegar
  • 3 egg yolks
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • ¼ tsp Dijon mustard
  • Freshly ground black pepper

Instructions

Make the healthy hollandaise sauce.

  • Quarter fill a small saucepan with hot water from a kettle and heat the water to get it simmering.
  • In a bowl (one that you can fit on top of the small saucepan, and will not touch the simmering water) beat the yogurt, vinegar and egg yolks together well.
  • Put the bowl over the saucepan of simmering water and stir continuously until thickened, for approximately 12 – 15 minutes.
  • Remove from the heat and stir in the salt, mustard and pepper to own taste, and set aside.
  • Grill the turkey bacon and toast the muffins.
  • In a medium sized pan of simmering water, poach the eggs, being careful to not overdo them. You want the egg yolks to still be slightly runny, not hard.
  • Place a slice of bacon on top of each toasted muffin, place a poached egg on the bacon and then serve topped with the healthy hollandaise sauce and some freshly grated black pepper.
