Since we cannot go to brunch during the quarantine. I thought, Why not bring brunch at home? Here’s my favourite breakfast I’d like to share with you. 

Mimosas are highly recommended with this recipe ! 


  • 4 egg yolks
  • 3 ½ tablespoons lemon juice
  • 1 pinch ground pepper
  • 1 tablespoon water
  • 1 cup butter, melted
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 8 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon distilled white vinegar
  • Smoked Salmon
  • 16 pieces of Brie Cheese
  • 4 English muffins, split
  • 2 tablespoons butter, softened

Salmon and Egg breakfast 1


To Make Hollandaise: Fill the bottom of a double boiler part-way with water. Make sure that water does not touch the top pan. Bring water to a gentle simmer. In the top of the double boiler, whisk together egg yolks, lemon juice, pepper, and 1 tablespoon water.

Add the melted butter to egg yolk mixture 1 or 2 tablespoons at a time while whisking yolks constantly. If hollandaise begins to get too thick, add a teaspoon or two of hot water. Continue whisking until all butter is incorporated. Whisk in salt, then remove from heat. Place a lid on pan to keep sauce warm.

Preheat oven on broiler setting. To Poach Eggs: Fill a large saucepan with 3 inches of water. Bring water to a gentle simmer, then add vinegar. Carefully break eggs into simmering water, and allow to cook for 2 1/2 to 3 minutes. Yolks should still be soft in center. Remove eggs from water with a slotted spoon and set on the side.

While eggs are poaching, toast the English muffins on a baking sheet under the broiler.

Spread toasted muffins with softened butter, and top each one with a slice of Smoked Salmon, and two pieces of Brie, followed by one poached egg. Place 2 muffins on each plate and drizzle with hollandaise sauce. Sprinkle with chopped chives and serve immediately.

You can also add some a cup of fruits on the side.

Bonne appétit !”
