Eggsciting news! It’s #BritishEggWeek

This is no yoke, from the 5th to the 11th of October we are celebrating British Egg Week, a campaign started by British Lion Eggs to encourage everyone to eat more eggs.  In the past it was thought that people should limit the number of eggs they eat because they contain cholesterol, but current evidence suggests that dietary cholesterol does not increase the risk of heart disease in most healthy people. Recommendations on limiting egg consumption have now been relaxed by all major UK heart and health advisory groups, including the British Heart Foundation and the Department of Health.  So why not come along to our Everlasting English cookery course and along with a number of delicious dishes including handmade sausages, beef wellington and potted shrimp, you will learn to make that perfect brunch meal, Eggs Benedict.  There are so many different variations of Eggs Benedict, how many have you tried?

Eggs Benedict with smoked salmon, also known as Eggs Royale.

Eggs Blackstone substitutes streaky bacon for the ham and adds a tomato slice.

Eggs Blanchard substitutes sauce Béchamel for the Hollandaise.

Eggs Florentine substitutes spinach for the ham or adds it underneath.

Eggs Mornay substitutes Mornay (cheese) sauce for the Hollandaise.

Huevos Benedictos substitutes either sliced avocado or Mexican chorizo for the ham, and is topped with both a salsa (such as salsa roja or salsa brava) and hollandaise sauce.

Eggs Hussarde substitutes Holland rusks for the English muffin and adds Bordelaise sauce.

Irish Benedict replaces the ham with corned beef or Irish bacon.

Dutch Benedict replaces the ham or bacon with scrapple (pan fried pork meatloaf). Popular in the eastern region of Pennsylvania.

After completing our Everlasting English cookery course you will be well equipped to whip up a perfect traditional Eggs Benedict or come up with your own eggstraordinary creations!
