Btw, This line with Black playing Ng8 is called the "Heidenfeld".  It's probably good for a couple of wins in blitz, but it just won't hold up to a stern test.  Harding wrote about it years ago in his The Classical French.

dom's recommendation of 6.Be3 is certainly fine.  I don't think White should worry about the "best" move, and seek a plan that will work as Black spends tempi galore preparing to castle and gain counterplay in the center.

Best is 6.Be3! and now

A) 6...Bb4 (position may occur via Planet X: 4.e5 Ng8 5.Be3 and 5..Ne7 was played in Kerg-Bronstein 1990)  7.Qg4! g6 8.Ne2 Nc6 9.ooo ... White plays a kind of improved (for White) Raser-Studier gambit: 4.Be3 Bb4 (4...dxe4!) 5.e5 Ng8

B) 6...b6 (the normal move in the position, Black want to exchange his light square bishop with Ba6) 7.h4! h5!? (7...Ba6?! 8.Bxa6 Nxa6 9.Qg4 g6 10.h5) 8.Be2 g6 9.Nf3 Ba6 10.Qd2 Qd7!? and a small advantage to White  (Psakhis)

C) 6...c5 7.dxc5 Nd7 8.Bb5 Qc7 9.Qd4! Nh6 10.Bxh6 Bxc5 11.Qf4 gxh6 12.Nf3 Oll-Borges,Tallin 1989 (Psakhis)

all lines show White is a little better, but on a positional point of view, because Black cannot attack the center and open lines

1 e4 e6 2. d5 d5 3.Nc3 Nf6 4.Bg5 Be7 5.e5 Ng8 I had this played on me in a tournament today. I played Be3 and was outplayed by a much higher rated player.

I gather the gambit 5. h4 does not work well here.

Any pointers anybody.
