Eggs Benedict vs Eggs Royale

Another popular breakfast choice, the famous Eggs Benedict was first eaten in the late 1800s, and has stood the test of time ever since then.

But variations on the dish has resulted in a whole array of options for the poached egg and hollandaise dish.

Replacing the traditional choice of ham between the egg and the muffin with smoked salmon, is called Eggs Royale

And, as the poll from Alexander's on Facebook suggests, it's a close call when it comes to the favourite!
