|EVERY FEW MINUTES|
|HAM AND BROCCOLI WITH HOLLANDAISE|
Thinly sliced ham
Sliced Swiss cheese
Raise rack in oven to groove that is second from the top and turn oven heat to broil.
Cut several English muffins in half and place soft side up and put in the oven long enough to lightly brown. (Not too long, you still want them to be fairly soft.)
At this time you will need to turn the oven down to 350 degrees and low the rack so it rests in the center groove.
After they have browned, place about 3 pieces of thinly sliced ham on each muffin.
Place 1 slice Swiss cheese on each muffin. Place in oven until cheese is melted.
Serve with steamed broccoli as the next layer with Hollandaise Sauce topping it off.
HOLLANDAISE SAUCE: Stir 2 egg yolks, slightly beaten and 3 tablespoons lemon juice vigorously in 1 quart saucepan with a wooden spoon. Add 1/4 cup butter. Heat over very low heat, stirring constantly, until butter is melted. Add 1/4 cup butter, stirring vigorously until butter is melted and sauce thickens. (Be sure butter melts slowly; this gives eggs time to cook and thicken sauce without curdling.) Serve hot or at room temperature. 3/4 cup sauce.
Using a double boiler is a good idea but I just raise a small pan approximately 2" off burner. When making 6 halves of the ham and Swiss mixture, I double this recipe. This lunch is very filling and will definitely hold you over until dinner.
