Step by Step Method

Step 1

Melt the butter in a small saucepan. Stir in the flour. Cook over medium-high heat for 1 minute, stirring constantly.

Step 2

Whisk in the chicken broth and heavy cream. Cook until the sauce is thickened and bubbly, whisking constantly.

Step 3

Stir in the cheese; cook until the cheese melts, whisking constantly. Remove from the heat and cover to keep warm.

Step 4

Arrange the buttered muffin halves on a baking sheet. Top each with a slice of smoked ham. Broil 3 inches from the heat source for 2 minutes; keep warm.

Step 5

Bring 4 inches of water (or enough to cover the eggs) along with the chicken bouillon to a boil in a large skillet. Reduce the heat to medium-high. Crack the eggs 1 at a time onto a small plate; slide each egg into the simmering water. Cook for 4 - 6 minutes, until eggs are cooked with yolk still runny to desired consistency.

Step 6

Remove the eggs with a slotted spoon and dab excess water with a paper towel.

Step 7

Place 1 egg on top of each ham-topped muffin half. Spoon the cheese sauce over and sprinkle with pepper.

NOTE: The amount of chicken bouillon depends on the amount of water added to the skillet and to your preferred taste.

Liked this more than Eggs Benedict. The sauce is easy and could be used on other things, like chicken or fish.

Daily Inspiration

Made these poached eggs for dinner last night. I had leftover ham from Easter and was finally able to obtain my english muffins. The sauce was really tasty with the cheese and while I'm not the greatest at making poached eggs -- they turned out great. This made a great breakfast for dinner dish. : )
