  • Hollandaise:
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter
  • 2 tablespoons cold water
  • 2 large egg yolks
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
  • 3/8 teaspoon salt, divided
  • Remaining Ingredients:
  • 12 thin asparagus spears
  • 6 large eggs
  • Cooking spray
  • 6 ounces shaved lower-sodium deli ham
  • 6 frozen whole-grain waffles, toasted
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper


  1. 1. To prepare hollandaise, place butter in a small saucepan over medium-low heat; cook 5 minutes or until completely melted. Carefully skim solids off top with a spoon; discard solids. Slowly pour remaining butter out of pan into a small bowl, leaving remaining solids in pan; discard solids, and set clarified butter aside.
  2. 2. Combine 2 tablespoons cold water and egg yolks in a small saucepan, stirring with a whisk until foamy. Place pan over low heat, stirring constantly until mixture thickens slightly. Gradually add 1/4 cup clarified butter, about 1 tablspoon at a time, stirring with a whisk until each addition is incorporated and mixture is thick. Reserve remaining clarified butter for another use.
  3. 3. Stir lemon juice and 1/8 teaspoon salt into butter mixture, whisking until blended. Remove pan from heat.
  4. 4. To prepare sandwich, snap off tough ends of asparagus. Cook asparagus in boiling water to cover 3 minutes. Drain and plunge asparagus into ice water; drain.
  5. 5. Add water to a large skillet, filling two-thirds full; bring to a boil. Reduce heat; simmer. Break 1 egg into each of 6 (6-ounce) custard cups coated with cooking spray. Place custard cups in simmering water in pan. Cover pan; cook 6 minutes. Remove custard cups from water.
  6. 6. Place 1 ounce ham and 1 poached egg on each waffle; sprinkle eggs evenly with remaining 1/4 teaspoon salt. Top each serving with 2 asparagus spears and 1 tablespoon hollandaise. Sprinkle evenly with pepper.
