  • 2 Tablespoons Unsalted Butter
  • 2 Tablespoons Unbleached Flour
  • 1/2 Cup Chicken Broth
  • 1/2 Cup Heavy Cream
  • 1/2 Cup Grated Asiago Cheese
  • 4 Slices Ham
  • 2 English Muffins (Split, Toasted, and Buttered) or 4 Slices of Bread (Toasted & Buttered)
  • 4 Eggs
  • 4 Olives
  1. In a small-size saucepan, melt butter. Blend in flour and stir over a medium-high heat for 1 minute. Whisk in chicken broth and cream. Cook, whisking constantly, until sauce is thickened and bubbly. Whisk in grated cheese until melted. Remove from heat and cover to keep warm.
  2. On a parchment paper lined baking sheet, arrange ham slices on English muffin halves or bread slices. Broil them 3 inches from heat for 2 minutes. Remove from oven and keep warm.
  3. In a large-size skillet, bring 1/2 inch water to a boil and reduce heat. Carefully slip eggs into water and simmer for 4 to 6 minutes. Baste yolks with simmering water. Very carefully remove eggs with a slotted spoon and arrange over ham. Spoon cheese sauce over eggs and on the side. Garnish with an olive. Serve warm. Serves 4
