Then our food arrived. Seeing the huge chunks of ham topped with soft eggs and hollandaise sauce intrigued him. A small bite turned into John losing half of his breakfast.
So last night we talked about stepping up our freezer game to make up for some lame posts. John got the Easter ham leftovers out of the freezer. This is near the end of a delicious 16 pounder that has been making regular appearances.
John put the ham slices in the oven to warm them up.
We were going to get one of those dry packets of sauce mix but I decided we needed to be adventurous. We were making homemade.
I started by separating eggs.
He boiled water with a splash of vinegar. He used a pretty shallow pan and thinks that helped make them a success.
No fancy egg separator needed! We will save the egg whites (and the one yolk I broke) for omelets this week. (Maybe I should have used an egg separator!)
Then fresh squeezed lemon. Only used half, John made a lemonade with the other half.
Meanwhile John was busy poaching.
Six eggs almost there!
Ready to build! First the toasted English muffins. We didn't butter them, but might next time.
The warm ham.
The beautiful eggs.
My slightly lumpy sauce and a sprinkle of paprika tops it off.
Perfect and delicious. And our son ate three with a thumb up!!
Plus, while getting the ham out of the freezer, we found dinner for tonight! More frozen leftovers!
