Poached Eggs with Hollandaise, Smoked Salmon and Creamed Spinach
1 1/2 to 2 pounds fresh spinach, trimmed
1/2 cup heavy cream
1/2 tsp. salt

1 cup prepared hollandaise sauce (or 1 pkg (0.9 oz) dry mix)

Wash spinach thoroughly, but do not dry. Place in covered saucepan over medium heat. Cook 4-5 minutes until wilted. Remove and drain in colander. When spinach is cool, squeeze out excess water. Chop fine.

To serve, place brioche or 2 muffin halves on warm plate. Top with creamed spinach. Arrange salmon slices over spinach. Crown with poached eggs. Spoon hollandaise sauce over eggs. Serve any remaining hollandaise sauce on the side. Garnish with sprigs of fresh herbs if desired.
