A delicious breakfast for Christmas Day morning.
300ml (9 ½ fl oz) crème fraiche
2 tsp cornflour

Juice ½ lemon
50g (1 ¾ oz) butter, diced
2 English muffins, halved
200g (6 ½ oz) spinach, steamed
4 slices smoked salmon

Step One: To make the sauce, whisk the crème fraiche, cornflour, egg yolks, white wine vinegar and lemon juice over a medium heat until simmering. Remove from the heat and whisk in the butter. Season to taste. Add extra lemon juice, if needed. Keep warm, whisking occasionally.
Step Two: Poach the eggs for 3 mins in simmering water. Toast and butter the muffins. Divide the steamed spinach between the muffins. Top with smoked salmon and an egg. Season and pour over the sauce.
Tip: The spinach can be cooked ahead of time and then reheated in a microwave, if desired. The eggs can also be poached ahead of time and set aside for 30 mins – reheat them in simmering water just before serving.
