Story
I have developed about 30 different baked egg recipes. I'm not sure why but it's such a great concept to work with. Anyhow this is a play on a topping I use for risotto sometimes - it worked very good under baked eggs and hollandaise sauce... :) Nikko
Protein is the most essential nutrient for our body, it helps babies to grow, builds muscles in adults and helps produce new cells in older people. The chef has created the dish with extra proteins by adding mushrooms and bacon, watch the video to find out how simply she makes it. Served over toasted muffins and hollandaise sauce topping, it’s absolutely mouth-watering.
