  1. Preheat the oven to gas 6, 200°C, fan 180°C. Blanch the broccoli in a pan of boiling water for 2 minutes, then drain and refresh under cold water. Slice the stems, keeping the heads whole. Divide between 4 ovenproof dishes.
  2. Melt the butter in a pan. Add the flour, cook for 1 minute, then gradually pour in the milk, stirring until the mixture comes together in a thick, white sauce. Stir in the cream, horseradish and chives; season well.
  3. Scatter the salmon around the broccoli, then pour over white sauce. Crack the eggs into a bowl one at a time. Remove a little of the white and discard. Add 2 eggs to each dish.
  4. Cover with foil and bake for 12-14 minutes, until the whites are set and the yolks are still soft. Leave to stand for 2 minutes; serve.
