Preparation

Begin by buttering the inside of the skillet. Once buttered, alternate layers of English muffin pieces and Honey Baked Ham in the skillet.

In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the 8 whole eggs, whole milk, garlic powder, salt and pepper.

Pour the egg mixture into the skillet with the ham and English muffin pieces. Cover with plastic wrap and place in refrigerator and refrigerate for at least 1 hour. This is to give the egg mixture time to soak into the English muffin pieces. This can be done the night before.

Preheat your oven to 375 degrees. Remove skillet from refrigerator and remove the plastic wrap from skillet. Place skillet in oven and bake for 1 hour. If top is becoming overly browned, cover in tin foil.

While the skillet is baking, prepare your hollandaise sauce.

Bring 1-2 inches of water to boil in a small saucepan, then reduce to a low simmer.

In a medium heat-proof bowl, whisk together the egg yolks and lemon juice. Place bowl on top of saucepan, making sure that the bottom of the bowl is not touching the hot water. While continuously whisking, slowly add melted butter. Whisk until the sauce thickens, 1-2 minutes. Remove the bowl from the top of the pot. Season with cayenne and salt. Congratulations, you just made hollandaise sauce.

Remove skillet from the oven and drizzle with the hollandaise sauce. Sprinkle the entire skillet with paprika.

Bask in the adoration of your appreciative brunch guests!
