  1. Heat the olive oil in a frying pan over a medium-high heat. Cook the spinach for 2-3 mins to wilt; season to taste.

  2. Toast the slices of trio of olives bloomer and rub with the garlic clove. Meanwhile, bring a small pan of water to a very gentle simmer. Crack the egg into a cup. Gently tip into the water; poach for 3 mins or until the white is set. Top the toast with the spinach, then scoop the poached egg on top.

  3. Spoon over the hollandaise sauce and finish with a pinch of cayenne pepper.
