Recipe adapted from Delia's Complete How to Cook
Make the Hollandaise Sauce. See recipe below
Poach the eggs. See recipe below
Place the split muffins on a baking tray and lightly toast the split muffins on both sides.
Now butter the cut side of the muffins and top each half with a couple for folded slice of ham. Pop them under the grill to warm the ham then put them onto warm serving plates.
Put a poached egg on top of each muffin half, add a little seasoning and then spoon over the foaming hollandaise, covering the egg (there should be a little over 1 tablespoon of sauce for each egg).
Serve straight away.
