  2. You can season the sauce with a bit of mustard, salt and cayenne pepper to taste, if you’ve got it to hand.
  3. Arrange the spinach, sliced cherry tomatoes, ham and toast on the plate.
  4. Poach the eggs (break into a pan of boiling water and cook for a couple of minutes).
  5. Put the eggs on top of the salad, break the yolks and finish with a dollop of the makeshift hollandaise sauce and a sprinkle of spring onion.
