Don’t let them overheat.Take the pan off the heat from time to time and scrape down the sides with a spatula. Whisk in a small amount of warm butter, repeating until it’s all incorporated and resembles mayonnaise. Season and add lemon juice to taste.Keep warm over the hot water.
    3. Quickly wilt the spinach in a pan for a few minutes while the eggs poach.
    4.      Place mushrooms on plates, top with spinach, crumble the goat’s cheese over; add a poached egg and then spoon on Hollandaise. Serve immediately.
