I got this recipe when I was about 13 from my grandmother, and after all of these years, it's still a family favorite.

Absolutely delicious, I sliced off 2 thick slices of smoky ham straight of the leg and with the poached eggs and hollandaise sauce and the toasted English muffin and that sprinkle of paprika made for a delicious breakfast which I shared with my DM and we both thoroughly enjoyed. Thank you foodchef2 and lazyme for the recommendation, made for I Recommend tag game.
