- 8 large Eggs
- 1 Tablespoon butter
- 1/2 cup Onions minced
- 1 cup Milk whole works best

- 1/2 large red pepper minced
- 1/2 tsp Garlic Powder

- pinch crushed red pepper
- 2 cups Bread cubed, any will do. I used French Bread
- 1 regular Pie Crust

- 1 cup butter
- 1 tablespoon lemon juice
- 1-3 tablespoon hot water
- 1 pinch salt
- 1 pinch pepper
- 1 pinch cayenne pepper
Take the pie crust out of the fridge and let it get to room temperature.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees
In a small saucepan, melt the butter and add the onions. On medium heat, cook the onions until they are a light caramel color.
Crack the eggs into a medium-sized mixing bowl.
Add to the eggs in the mixing bowl, milk, ham, cheese, minced red pepper, garlic powder, salt, pepper, and crushed red pepper. Whisk with a fork until the yolks are broken and the ingredients are combined.
Roll the pie crust out and lay it on a 9" pie plate. Fit the pie crust into the pan. Using your fingers, pinch the edges to make a decorative edge, (optional)
Add the cubed bread to the pie plate and pour the egg mixture on top. Sprinkle the remaining cheese on top of the Egg mixture.
You can make this up to 24 hours ahead of time or bake soon after assembly.

In a small saucepan or microwave, melt the butter.
In a blender, blend the 3 egg yolks for 2 min. Turn the blender on low and slowly drizzle the butter into the egg yolk mixture (should take about 30-60 seconds) slowly add the lemon juice and the hot water. Add the pinch of salt, pepper and cayenne pepper while blending.
If you want your hollandaise a little thinner in consistency, slowly add 1-2 Tablespoons of hot water.
