Eggsemplary Breakfast: she’ll love it!

The Sage by Heston Blumenthal Precision Poacher is an electric cooker that removes all the guesswork from cooking eggs. Featuring five versatile pre-set functions: steam, poach/boil, scramble, Eggspert™ and sous-vide, as well as a choice of textures within its steam and poach settings of soft, medium or hard, the Precision Poacher will cook your eggs just how your mum likes them!

Pancetta with soft-boiled eggs and avocado

  • 4 eggs
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 sliced avocado
  • 100g pancetta rashers

Boil eggs for 5 minutes, or as desired with the Precision Poacher. Heat oil in non-stick pan and wrap pancetta around each slice of avocado. Fry over a high heat until cooked and crisp (around 3 minutes). Serve eggs in egg cups with the pancetta avocado soldiers on the side.

Marmite eggs benedict with waffles

  • 5 large eggs, 1 separated
  • 75g plain flour
  •  ½ tsp of salt
  • pinch of bicarbonate of soda
  • ½ tbsp melted butter
  • 150ml full-fat milk
  • 50g grated cheddar
  • 100g hollandaise sauce
  • 2 tsp Marmite
  • handful chives

Heat waffle maker following manufacturer’s instructions. Whisk separated egg white to stiff peaks. Combine the flour, bicarb and 1 /2 tsp salt in a separate bowl.  Add the egg yolk, melted butter and milk and whisk to a smooth, thick batter. Stir in the cheese, then carefully fold in the egg white.

Heat oven to 180C (electric)/160C (fan)/ Mark 4 (gas). Ladle batter into waffle maker and cook for 5 minutes. Keep the waffles warm on a baking tray in oven.

In the meantime, poach remaining eggs on low heat for 3 minutes for runny yolks or as to desired Precision Poacher setting.

Heat hollandaise sauce as per pack instructions and stir through the Marmite. Top waffles with two poached eggs each, the hollandaise sauce and snipped chives.

Her perfect brew (iced)

The Sage Nespresso Creatista coffee machine is the first Nespresso coffee maker to have an automated steam wand. This means that, alongside your perfectly brewed espresso, the micro foam that is essential for creamy, café-quality latte is made for you at the push of a button. You can read more on the Creatista here.

You could also try freezing her favourite coffee – whether simply espresso or ultra-milky latte – into ice cubes the night before. Then, in the morning, pour fresh, hot coffee over the cubes in a glass. The result should be her perfect cuppa with a thoughtful (and flavoursome!) twist.

Eggsemplary Breakfast Presentation

You’ve surpassed all eggspectations with your preparation – now, try and keep the egg from your face: no breakfast in bed ideas would be complete without the right plate and mug to drink from!

We hope this helped, and that, if you take only one thing from this: Mother’s Day is on the 26th March this year – don’t forget!
