Baked eggs florentine
A delicious recipe for a family breakfast.

500g spinach, fresh or frozen

4 large free-range eggs

10g butter

150ml cream

1/4 tsp nutmeg

50g grated parmesan

Salt and pepper

Fresh sourdough bread to serve

Heat the oven to 200°C. In a large pan, melt a knob of butter and add the spinach gradually. Cook until all the leaves are wilted, then transfer to a colander and press to remove excess liquid.

Return the spinach to the pan, add the cream, salt, pepper and nutmeg. Cook until the cream has thickened slightly. 

Divide the mixture between two small ovenproof dishes. Make 2 wells in the spinach and crack an egg in each well. Season with salt and pepper and scatter the parmesan. Bake for 10 to 15 minutes and serve with sourdough bread.
