  • 2 T. butter
  • 1/4 c. all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 c. milk
  • 1/2 c. buttermilk
  • 1 T. Ranch dressing mix
  • 1/4 tsp. salt
  • 1/4 tsp. pepper
  • 4 eggs
  • 4 English muffins
  • 8 thick slices of tomato -- heirlooms are a special treat

Melt the butter in a medium-size heavy saucepan over medium heat; whisk in the flour until smooth. Cook for 1 minute, whisking constantly. Gradually whisk in the 1 1/2 cups milk; cook over medium heat, whisking constantly, 3 to 4 minutes or until mixture is thickened and bubbly. Remove from the heat, and whisk in the buttermilk and remaining ingredients.

Meanwhile, poach the four eggs and toast the English muffins. Arrange the muffins halves on serving plates and place a slice of tomato on each half. Carefully spoon a poached egg over each and drizzle with the prepared sauce. Serve immediately.
