Eggs royale recipe- our favourite weekend breakfast in the motorhome

Eggs Royale Recipe

This Eggs Royale recipe is our go to treat breakfast. In fact the first time that Damian made this for me, before I went to work in the morning ( it was a 6.30am breakfast) I do remember thinking ‘He’s a keeper’. I even sent a picture to my sister of my breakfast – she agreed with me.

We often get a small pack of salmon in the weekly shop – it tends to be more of a weekend breakfast now. What happened to romance huh?! You may want to double the quantity of eggs and salmon for your Eggs Royale and have the muffins in half – both with some salmon and an egg on it. 

Motorhome cooking facilities and equipment needed . . .

  • Can be made on a single gas burner.
  • Having a grill makes it easier
  • If on EHU – then a toaster is easier still (I don’t know anyone that has a toaster in a van though)
  • 1 small saucepan (to boil for the hollandaise bowl)
  • Glass bowl (to fit on the saucepan above, without touching the water)
  • A whisk (for the hollandaise)
  • knife for cubing butter, slicing lemon and chopping chives if using
  • Wooden spoon (to create a whirlpool)

The ingredients

For the Eggs Royale

  • 2 muffins
  • 2 fresh free range eggs
  • 2 slices of salmon
  • dash of white wine vinegar 

For the hollandaise sauce

  • 2 egg yolks
  • 1 tsp white wine vinegar
  • 3oz butter
  • lemon juice or fresh lemon

To serve your Eggs Royale

  • lemon wedge
  • fresh chives (if you grow them in the motorhome)E

The cooking

For the hollandaise

  1. Take the small saucepan of water and bring it a simmer.
  2. Add the vinegar, lemons juice and egg yolks into the glass bowl and whisk until frothy.
  3. Place the glass bowl on the saucepan and continue to whisk until it thickens.
  4. Gradually whisk the butter in, bit by bit, until all the butter is gone.
  5. If at any point it looks like oil is forming – take it off the heat and keep whisking. This will stop the sauce from splitting.
  6. Season with salt and pepper.
  7. Leave off the heat but over the saucepan until ready to use. (Use some cling film over the surface to stop a skin from forming.

Toast the muffins

  1. Cut the muffins in half and toast under the grill 
  2. Butter the toast if desired.

To poach the eggs

  1. Add a dash of vinegar to a saucepan of water and bring to boil.
  2. Crack the 1st egg into a cup or glass
  3.  Turn down the heat slightly and with a wooden spoon create a whirlpool for the egg to go into (this keeps the egg white and yolk together more)
  4. Once the first one is in, do the next one (careful about the whirlpool creation as there is an egg in there now)
  5. Poach literally for 2 minutes so the yolk stays runny.

Serving your Eggs Royale

  • But the muffins on the plate stacked on top of each other.
  • Add a slice of salmon.
  • Top gently with a poached egg
  • Spoon over the delicious hollandaise sauce
  • Sprinkle with the chopped chives and serve with a wedge of lemon.

Tips and cheats for cooking Eggs Royale in your motorhome . . .

These are the advice and tips that we have to help adapt the usual eggs royale recipe so that it can be made on one gas burner rather than two.

  • You could toast your muffins on your gas hob, holding the toast with tongs – or in a fish/veg BBQ rack.

Swap the salmon out and bring in bacon – making an Eggs Benedict.

 Make it vegetarian and swap the salmon for spinach and create an Eggs Florentine.
