In this recipe, the traditional English muffin is replaced with waffles, and the dish is given a fresh bite with the addition of asparagus.

Ingredients

For the hollandaise:

½ cup unsalted butter2 Tbsp cold water2 large egg yolks1 Tbsp fresh lemon juice⅜ tsp salt, divided

Directions

To prepare the hollandaise, place the butter in a small saucepan over medium-low heat and cook for  5 minutes or until completely melted. Carefully skim the solids off of the top with a spoon; discard solids. Slowly pour remaining butter out of the pan into a small bowl, leaving remaining solids in pan. Set the clarified butter aside.

 

Combine the water and egg yolks in a small saucepan, stirring with a whisk until foamy. Place the pan over low heat, stirring constantly until the mixture thickens slightly. Gradually add ¼  cup of the clarified butter, about 1 tablespoon at a time, stirring with a whisk until each addition is incorporated and mixture is thick. Reserve the remaining clarified butter for another use.

Stir the lemon juice and 1⁄8 teaspoon of salt into the butter mixture, whisking until blended. Remove pan from heat.

12 thin asparagus spear
6 large eggs
cooking spray, as needed
6 oz shaved, low-sodium deli ham
6 frozen whole-grain waffle, toasted
½ tsp freshly ground black pepper

Directions

Add some water to a large skillet, filling 2/3 full, and bring to a boil. Reduce heat the heat to a simmer. Break 1 egg into each of 6 (6-ounce) custard cups coated with cooking spray. Place custard cups in the simmering water in pan. Cover pan and cook for 6 minutes. Remove the custard cups from water.
