Meanwhile poach eggs in a large saucepan of boiling, salted water, for 3 minutes for slightly soft yolks. Remove with slotted spoon.

In heat-proof bowl, or upper section of double boiler whisk yolks with cream until well blended. Place bowl over saucepan of simmering water, whisking constantly until mixture thickens slightly. Very slowly pour in butter, while whisking constantly, until all the butter has been incorporated. Add lemon juice; immediately remove from heat. Stir in salt and cayenne.

Arrange spinach mixture over toasted English muffin halves. Top with poached eggs. Spoon sauce over eggs and sprinkle with chopped parsley if desired.
