This irresistible breakfast is a hybrid of an egg salad sandwich and an Egg McMuffin. It combines spicy, pickle-laced egg salad on a toasted English muffin with warm smoky ham and crispy frisée.

Slideshow: Best Breakfasts

  1. 8 large eggs
  2. 1/4 cup mayonnaise
  3. 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
  4. 1 teaspoon hot sauce
  5. 3/4 teaspoon hot paprika
  6. 1/4 cup finely chopped dill pickles, plus 1 1/2 tablespoons brine from the jar
  7. 1 tablespoon thinly sliced scallion
  8. Kosher salt
  9. Freshly ground black pepper
  10. 1 cup torn frisée, light green parts only
  11. 1 1/2 teaspoons extra-virgin olive oil
  12. Four 1-ounce slices of baked country ham
  13. 4 English muffins, split and lightly toasted
  1. In a saucepan, cover the eggs with water and bring to a boil. Simmer over moderately high heat for 8 minutes. Drain and cool the eggs slightly under cold running water. Peel the eggs and coarsely chop.
  2. In a large bowl, whisk the mayonnaise with the mustard, hot sauce, paprika and 1 tablespoon of the pickle brine. Fold in the chopped eggs, pickles and scallion and season with salt and pepper.
  3. In a medium bowl, toss the frisée with the olive oil and the remaining 1/2 tablespoon of pickle brine. Season the frisée with salt and pepper.
  4. Preheat a large cast-iron skillet. Fry the ham slices, turning once, until lightly browned, about 2 minutes. Lay the ham slices on the muffin bottoms and top with the egg salad and frisée. Close the sandwiches and serve.
Make Ahead The egg salad can be refrigerated overnight.
