Method

 
First make the sauce :
1) Whisk all the ingredients for the sauce except the butter together
2) Pour the hot butter in a thin stream into the mixture while whisking constantly. Note: if the sauce is not thick enough it is probably because the butter was not hot enough. You can put the bowl over a pot of simmering water and continue whisking until it thickens.

Then layer:

1) 1/2 toasted muffin
2) Slice of ham
3) Poached/soft boiled egg
4) Hollandaise sauce
