Food: Asparagus Benedict

I have an obsession with eggs, and toast as you may have gathered, always one to load as much as I can onto any type of Carb, well with asparagus coming into peak season, I couldn’t resist trying this combo.

Hollandaise sauce, I have messed this recipe up a couple of times, I then tried this Jamie Oliver Recipe and would recommend trying this easy step-by-step approach. I half the butter amount, and use low- fat butter to reduce fat. This would then serve 3 portions, at 4 Smart Points

 If you don’t fancy making it from scratch, you could always use a packet recipe, or fresh to simplify the recipe adjusting Smart Points accordingly.
