To poach eggs, bring a large deep frying pan of water to the boil over high heat. Break eggs into individual cups or small bowls.

When water comes to a rolling boil, turn the heat off and gently pour eggs into water.

Cover pan and stand for 8 minutes or until whites are set and yolks still soft.

Step 4
Meanwhile, combine maple syrup and mustard in a small bowl. Heat a large frying pan over medium-high heat.

Step 5
Brush bacon with maple mixture and cook for 3-4 minutes on each side, brushing with remaining maple mixture when turning, until golden and crisp at the edges.

Step 6
Place hollandaise sauce into a small heatproof bowl and microwave on high for 30 seconds or until warmed.

Step 7
Place toasted brioche onto serving plates. Spread each slice with hollandaise sauce, top with spinach leaves, bacon and a poached egg.

Step 8
Season with pepper and salt and serve.
