If you want to make your own Hollandise sauce, go ahead, but I was feeling frisky this AM and used a packet of Knorr Holandaise sauce mix instead.

You will need to have something to cook the eggs in the microwave in that make them a perfect size for the muffins. I bought mine at Wally World. They are plastic, and open up on a hinge.

3
Put one slice of Swiss on each muffin, break the bacon in 3 pieces, put on Swiss, put one slice of ham on top of the bacon.
4
Spray the container you are going to cook your eggs in with non stick spray.
5
Put one egg in each container, and whip, add 1 teaspoon cream to each egg and whip. Put 3 cut spears of asparagus on top, salt and pepper
6
Put each egg in microwave and cook 1 minute.
7
Meanwhile make Hollandaise to package directions using the 1 cup milk and 1/4 cup butter.
8
Place each egg on each muffin, and cover with Hollandaise.
