  1. Take the ham out of the fridge to bring it to room temperature.
  2. Stand your Hollandaise sauce in a bowl of recently boiled water to warm it up.
  3. Bring a wide, deep pan of water to the boil, then turn the heat down to minimum. 
  4. Put the slices of bread in the toaster.
  5. While the toast is cooking, hold the eggs as close as you can to the surface of the simmering water and crack them in. 
  6. Leave the eggs to poach for 4 minutes, then lift gently from the water with a slotted spoon and dry on a clean tea towel.
  7. Lay the toast on a plate, top with ham then egg, and spoon over as much Hollandaise as you like. 
  8. It’s Mother’s Day, so deliver your eggs and go and wash the dishes!
