1
To make the Hollandaise, start by clarifying the butter. Place the butter in a pan over a very low heat. Skim away any solids that rise to the top without heating the butter too much – you should be left with a golden clarified butter
2
Meanwhile, place the shallot, peppercorns and vinegar in a small pan and reduce by ¾. Pass through a sieve and set aside
3
Place the egg yolks, vinegar reduction and salt in a glass or metal bowl over a large pan of simmering water and whisk until doubled in volume
4
Remove from the heat and slowly start to add the clarified butter a little at a time until fully incorporated and emulsified. If it is getting a little thick or looking like it is starting to split, just add a little warm water
5
To poach the eggs, add 1 tbsp of vinegar to a pan of water set over a medium heat. Crack the eggs into small cups and swirl the water. Drop the eggs in one by one and poach for 3 minutes
6
Meanwhile, toast the muffins and quickly sauté the spinach in a frying pan
7
Drain the spinach well and arrange over the muffins. Top each half with a poached egg. Warm the Hollandaise gently over a pan of simmering water before spooning generous amounts over the eggs to serve
