READY IN: 30mins




  • Sauce (while sauce is cooking, prepare/heat the other ingredients):
  • In a sauce pot, over medium heat, melt the butter and stir in all the flour, blending well.
  • Mix the milk and cream, slowly add to the sauce pot, whisking to totally blend (time to poach those eggs!).
  • Add the lemon juice and cayenne pepper.
  • Add the grated cheese, blending well. (more cheese can be added for a 'cheesier' flavor if desired. Keep in mind that the cheese will further thicken the sauce.).
  • Do not allow the mixture to boil or even come close. Lower the temperature as necessary.
  • Cook to thicken sauce to desired consistency. Sauce will further thicken as it sits.
  • Heat the ham slices (fry lightly, steam or nuke).
  • Add the chopped shallot to the spinach & mix well, heating through.
  • Place 1/2 English muffin on each plate, topping it 1st with a ham slice, then 1/4 c spinach mixture, topping that with a poached egg and finally with sauce, then sprinkle with fresh ground pepper.
  • Serve hot!
  • Keeping a well warmed oven will give you a place to keep things hot 'til you are ready to serve.
