Makes 4 servings

  • 4 English muffins, split and toasted
  • 4 slices thick-cut ham
  • 1/2 - 3/4 cup greens (collards, spinach, chard)
  • 4 eggs, fried
  • 4 slices of tomato
  • 1 egg
  • 1/4 cup butter, melted
  • salt and pepper to taste

Bake the Tomatoes

Preheat oven to 350 degrees and bake four thick cut slices of a large heirloom tomato drizzled in olive oil and pepper for 10-15 minutes until soft and roasted.

Toast the English Muffins + Fry the Eggs

Using a toaster oven (or broiler) slightly toast all side of the English muffins. In a non-stick pan, fry eggs and set aside to cool.

Make the Sauce

To make hollandaise, whisk egg in a bowl and prepare a small pot of simmering water on the stove. Place glass or stainless steel bowl over the simmering water and slowly whisk in melted butter, continuing to whisk over heat until thickened (approximately five to seven minutes).

Build the Sandwich

Layer your breakfast sandwich stack alternating with slices of ham, fried egg, sautéed greens and tomato. Top with hollandaise.
