Some breakfast dishes can transport us back to relaxing holidays or trips to elegant hotels, even when savored in our own homes. To relive those memorable moments, it's a great idea to enjoy a gourmet breakfast once in a while.

Eggs Florentine is a fantastic suggestion. When served with crispy bread or warm toast and topped with smoked salmon and arugula, this recipe can elevate your breakfast table and start your day off on a delightful note.

Ingredients for Eggs Florentine:

  • Two poached eggs
  • A handful of arugula or spinach
  • A clove of garlic
  • A half tablespoon of butter
  • A tomato or any other preferred sandwich filling
  • Half a slice of smoked salmon
  • Hollandaise sauce
  • Bread

How to Prepare Eggs Florentine:

  • Gently break the eggs into boiling, salted water from as close to the boiling surface as possible. Once they are cooked, remove them with a slotted spoon.
  • Rub the bread with the cut side of a garlic clove. You can also toast the slices in a toaster or grill.
  • Place one egg on each slice of bread, then generously pour Hollandaise sauce over the eggs. Season with freshly ground pepper and salt.
  • For the finishing touch, serve with pieces of smoked salmon and a sprinkle of your choice of greens.
