Christmas Quick Eats

The Perfect Eggs Royale with Paul Hollywood

December 24, 2015

I know what I’m having for breakfast on Christmas day, do you? The routine in our house has always been Eggs Royale, with a generous serving of Buck’s Fizz. This year Paul Hollywood’s Ready to Bake bread rolls are making a welcome addition to our Christmas breakfast.



Mr W and I were sent some Paul Hollywood Ready to Bake Rolls to try out and we thought that a run through of Christmas breakfast would be the best way to try them out. We popped some of the crusty rolls into the oven and I rustled up some scrambled eggs. We decided to spoil ourselves with some Lapsang Souchong smoked salmon from Waitrose to go with, although for once I didn’t jump for the Hollandaise sauce as the smoked salmon as so delicately flavoured I did not want to spoil it!

The rolls were crusty on the outside and super soft on the inside, eating them whilst warm was a wonderful treat too. They really did taste like they are homemade and I can definitely recommend them with soup or for a bacon butty too. The rolls come in three kinds- flour dusted wheatsheaf crusty rolls, mixed pack of poppy and sesame seed topped rolls and a mixed pack of multiseed (linseed, sunflower, millet and sesame seeds) rolls. The rolls are presented in clever packaging to deliver a freshness that doesn’t rely on the addition of any preservatives or additives and all of the packs are available from £1.49 in Waitrose, Tesco, Ocado and Budgens stores. They’re definitely worth trying out (I noticed they were on offer in Tesco yesterday!)

I am going to sign off this post with a good bye until mid-January. You can still follow me on social media (links below), but sadly/annoyingly/grumpily/etc I need to focus on my PhD viva, which is imminent. Have a wonderful Christmas and a lovely new year. Hopefully next time I blog I’ll be signing off my posts as Dr Pond!

Happy Christmas 🙂

    It looks great, but I’m not sure I would like this, I’m sorry to say that.

    These look like a lovely breakfast. I’ve seen those rolls in Waitrose before, and wondered if they were any good. I’ll have to give them a try. Thanks for linking them up to Brilliant Breakfasts.

    Happy Christmas! Firstly, these look amazing and secondly, I’ve just got the GBBO cook books so I’ll be trying some Paul Hollywood stuff – hopefully none of it too hard!

    Eggs Royale is my weakness! I just wish I can nail the Hollandaise sauce. 🙁

    • Reply MissPond January 10, 2016 at 4:57 pm

      Oh crikey I’ve never been good at making hollandaise! One day maybe…
