Mock Hollandaise Sauce
- Stir together mayonnaise, sour cream, mustard, and lemon juice in a small bowl. Keep adding 1 teaspoon of milk at a time until the sauce reaches to the desired consistency.
- Preheat the broiler.
- Take a large frying pan and grease it lightly. Fill half of it with water and then add vinegar. Bring to boiling.
- After that, reduce the heat to the simmering point. Now, break one egg into a measuring cup. Slip it carefully into the water. Similarly, slip all the remaining eggs into the simmering water.
- Boil the eggs for 3 to 5 minutes or to the point when the yolks start thickening. Remove the eggs by using a slotted spoon and put them on a plate.
- In the meantime, toast the muffin halves by placing on a baking sheet with inner sides up. Broil for nearly 2 minutes. Remove and let them cool.
- Take a 3-quart rectangular baking dish and grease it. Spread 2 tablespoons of semisoft cheese on the cut side of each muffin piece. Now, place them on a prepared dish with the cheese sides up. Now, top each halved piece with one slice of ham, two basil leaves, and one tomato slice.
- Put one cooked egg on the top of each slice and spread Mock Hollandaise Sauce over it.
- Preheat the oven to 350°F. Cover and bake all the pieces for nearly 25 minutes.
- Take them out. Sprinkle snipped basil and paprika. Serve!
