  8. Place the eggs in custard cups individually.
  9. Toast the English muffin and bacon slices in half-sheet pans using the salamander.
  10. When the water's ready, reduce the heat to a strong simmer and use a metal spoon to create a motion in the pot. Add the eggs and poach until done.
  11. Place the toasted muffins on a plate and top with the toasted bacon slices. Place an egg on each slice of bacon and cover with the Hollandaise sauce.
