Quick Eggs Benedict


  1. Preheat the grill to its highest setting.  Cut each slice of pancetta in half.  Place the pancetta in a frying pan and cook until crisp and golden, about 1-2 minutes. Keep warm while you poach the eggs.

  2. Bring a pan of water to the boil. Add a little vinegar and stir the pan to create a vortex. Crack the eggs into the pan and poach for 2-3 minutes. 

  3. Put the pancetta slices on top of oat cakes. Place a poached egg on top of each then spoon over a little hollandaise sauce to serve.
