  1. Grease a large mug or glass dish with a flat bottom with butter. Mix all dry ingredients in the mug with a fork or spoon. Crack in egg and mix well. Stir in cream. Combine until smooth and make sure there are no lumps.
  2. Microwave on high (approximately 700 watts) for 2 minutes. Check if bread is done in the middle - if not, microwave for another 15-30 seconds.
  3. Let cool and remove from mug. Slice in half.

Hollandaise sauce

  1. Melt butter in a saucepan or microwave and let cool for a few minutes.
  2. Mix egg yolks and water in a pot and set in a water bath.
  3. Simmer while stirring constantly until sauce thickens slightly.
  4. Remove pot from water bath and slowly drizzle butter into eggs while whisking constantly.
  5. Season with lemon, salt, pepper and some cayenne pepper.

Poached eggs

  1. Add plenty of water with vinegar in a saucepan. Bring to simmer but make sure the water is not boiling.
  2. Crack in eggs one at a time. First crack into a cup then carefully pour into the water. Let simmer for 3 minutes.
  3. Remove eggs with a slotted spoon and plunge into cold water. Put eggs on a plate and trim any rough edges.


    Fry mug bread halves in butter. Place a slice of bread on each plate, top each half with smoked ham, poached egg and hollandaise sauce. Sprinkle with watercress.
