  2. Add the mushrooms and cook, stirring occasionally, until they give off their juices and are lightly browned, 5-6 minutes.
  3. Transfer to a bowl.
  4. Add 4 tablespoons oil, the lemon juice, garlic, thyme, and red pepper flakes, season with salt and pepper, and toss to coat.
  5. Let marinate for at least 1 hour or up to 24 hours.
  6. Place eggs in a saucepan just large enough to hold them.
  7. Add cold water to cover by 1 inch and bring just to a boil over high heat.
  8. Remove the pan from the heat and cover.
  9. Let stand for 15 minutes.
  10. Drain the eggs, then transfer to a bowl of ice water and let cool.
  11. Peel and coarsely chop the eggs.
  12. Put the spinach in a large bowl.
  13. In a large frying pan, fry the bacon over medium heat, stirring occasionally, until crisp and browned, about 7 minutes.
  14. Using a slotted spoon, transfer to paper towels to drain.
  15. Pour off all but 2 tablespoons of the fat in the pan.
  16. Off the heat, whisk the vinegar and mustard into the fat in the pan, then drizzle over the spinach; toss to coat well.
