"A delicious play on the 'classic' eggs benedict. This makes 4-5 large burritos (which you can cut in half), or 6-8 smaller ones; depending on the size of the tortilla you use. I prefer to use the 10" flour tortilla; but, use what you like. Now, if you like - add more ham or other vegetables; this is just the combination I like. Great to serve for company - the hollandiase can be made ahead and simply reheated; then, just make your burritos - and, roll them up. Serve with a simple citrus salad."

Step 1

Hollandaise ... Prepare the sauce according to the directions, doubling the recipe; and, adding a pinch of red pepper flakes - then, set to the side. You can make this ahead and reheat, stove top or microwave. Or, you can also keep this warm in a bowl over a pot of warm water.

Step 2

Eggs ... First, add the eggs and cream to a bowl; and whisk until well combined and creamy. Now, I like a soft scramble for this recipe - so, add the oil and butter to a non-stick saute pan on medium to medium low heat. Then, add the egg mixture and slowly scrambled the eggs until soft and tender, stirring often. Then, the last couple of minutes, add the scallions and tomatoes; and, season with salt and pepper. Remove when when the eggs are still very moist and soft; but, set.

Step 3

Tortillas and Ham ... As the eggs cook - warm up the tortillas and ham. If you don't warm up the tortillas; they can tear or break when rolled. Just 15-20 seconds on medium heat in the microwave (wrapped in a moist paper towel), is all you need. You can also lightly warm/char them over a gas burner; or, in a saute pan on medium high heat too. It is up to you how you warm them up. The microwave for me - works perfect for this.

Step 4

I also warm up the ham in the microwave too. Simply lay the slices on a microwave safe plate, cover with a paper towel; and 20-30 seconds on medium heat - they are done. Remember, you are not cooking them ... just warming them up. I usually do this in 2 batches.

Step 5

Burrito ... Lay out your warm tortillas - Top with a few spinach leaves, 2-3 ham slices, eggs; and, hollandiase; then, wrap and roll. Now, everything should be warm; so, serve immediately. However, you can keep them warm in a casserole dish, lined with parchment paper, or a small metal grate; and, covered with foil in a 225 degree oven for 15-20 minutes if necessary.

Step 6

Serve and ENJOY! ... Serve extra hollandaise sauce on the side to pour over the top; or for dipping. I also like to add some fresh herbs as a garnish (same as you used in the hollandaise sauce). On the side, a citrus or melon salad. Perfect for a crowd or a special Sunday brunch.
