I used frozen spinach, which I defrosted and placed on top of the toasted muffin half.

While the eggs are baking you can make the hollandaise sauce. Take two egg yolks and whisk into 1/2 tbsp lemon juice. Melt the butter in the microwave. Place the egg yolks and lemon in a glass or metal bowl over a double boiler (or a pot with 1/3 cup of water) and boil. You must continue to whisk or the eggs yolks will cook. Slowly whisk in the melted butter and you will see the mixture start to thicken. Once it gets really thick, remove from heat and season with salt and red pepper flakes. Spoon over the cooked eggs before serving.

You can serve in the ceramic bowl or remove from the bowl and eat as a sandwich.
