For the English muffins

  • Preheat the oven to 180ο C (356ο F) set to fan.

  • In another bowl, add the yogurt, milk, olive oil, and mix.
  • Add the solid ingredients into the bowl with the wet ingredients and mix with a ladle. As soon as the mixture starts to thicken, mix with your hands and knead until there is a thick dough.
  • Divide into 8 pieces and shape into balls. Add the corn flour into a bowl and dust the dough pieces.
  • Dust your working surface with a little corn flour, place an 8 cm cooking ring, add one dough piece inside, and press lightly to shape it. Follow the same process for all dough pieces.
  • Add them into the hot frying pan, in two batches, and allow 3-4 minutes for them to turn golden on both sides. Clean the frying pan before adding the second batch.
  • Transfer onto a baking pan, press them lightly with your hand, and bake for 15 minutes.

For the hollandaise

  • Place a pot with simmering water on heat.
  • In a glass bowl, add the water, vinegar, yolks, and transfer it onto the pot in order to create a bain marie.
  • Stir constantly with a hand whisk, for 4-5 minutes, until the mixture becomes fluffy.
  • Then, add the melted butter very slowly, by constantly stirring.
  • Add the mustard, mix, and remove from the heat.
  • Pass the mixture through a sieve (chinois), add salt, pepper, tarragon, and set aside.

For the eggs

  • In the pot with the simmering water, add 45 g (3 tablespoons) vinegar.
  • In a small bowl, add 3 tablespoons of the vinegar and carefully break an egg. Softly add the egg into the pot and allow 2-3 minutes for it to thicken. Follow the same process for the rest of the eggs.
  • With a slotted spoon, remove and transfer onto a baking pan. Cut the egg white all around the egg so that you make it oval shaped.

To serve

  • On a plate, add the rocket, cherry tomatoes, and add salt, pepper, and olive oil.
  • Place one English muffin cut in half, horizontally, and add one slice of ham and 1 egg on each one.
