IngredientsServes: 4

  • 10g butter, melted
  • 1 garlic clove, peeled
  • 250g fresh spinach, thoroughly washed, drained and chopped
  • pinch of ground nutmeg
  • pinch of ground cinnamon
  • 4 eggs
  • 4 tbsp whipping cream
  • salt and freshly ground white pepper

MethodPrep:10min ›Cook:12min ›Ready in:22min

  1. Preheat the oven to 200°C (gas 6). Brush four 150ml ramekins with the melted butter.
  2. Spear the garlic clove on the end of a fork. Tip the spinach into a non-stick frying pan and wilt it over a high heat, stirring with the fork to flavour with the garlic. Discard the garlic.
  3. Drain and press out any excess moisture from the spinach, then season to taste with nutmeg, cinnamon, salt and pepper. Divide the spinach evenly among the ramekins, making a hollow in the middle. Break one egg into each hollow and top each one with 1 tbsp of the cream. Season with pepper.
  4. Place the ramekins in a baking tin and pour boiling water around them to come about half way up the sides of the ramekins. Carefully place in the oven and bake for 10–12 minutes until the eggs are just set.
  5. Remove the ramekins from the water bath, wipe dry and serve at once.


*If you happen to have some leftover cooked rice, add this to the spinach. *Alternatively, replace the spinach with some chopped fresh tomatoes or mushrooms sautéed in a little olive oil.

Creamy Eggs Florentine with Crispy Sourdough Crumbs

This recipe, equally suitable for a weekend brunch or for a meatless weeknight meal, requires very few ingredients, so buy the best farm-fresh eggs and baby spinach you can find. You’re also looking for irregular bits of freshly ground bread crumbs to add texture here, so use homemade bread crumbs instead of purchased. Other than that, this recipe is very adaptable. You can substitute sautéed mushrooms, zucchini or tomatoes for the spinach in fact, just about any tender vegetable will taste great in this recipe.

Creamy Eggs Florentine with Crispy Sourdough Crumbs


  • 1 small sourdough roll or slice of rustic sourdough bread, torn into small pieces
  • 2 Tbs. extra-virgin olive oil
  • 2 tsp. chopped fresh thyme
  • Sea salt and freshly ground pepper
  • 1/4 cup (1 1/4 oz./45 g) thinly sliced shallots
  • 2 tsp. minced garlic
  • 1/2 lb. (250 g) baby spinach
  • 8 eggs
  • 1 cup (8 fl. oz./250 ml) heavy cream
  • 2 tsp. chopped fresh tarragon
  • A pinch of freshly grated nutmeg

1. Preheat an oven to 375°F (190°C). Spray two 4-cup (32 fl. oz./1-l capacity) gratin dishes with cooking spray and place them on a rimmed baking sheet.

2. Pulse the bread in a food processor or chop with a chef’s knife until coarse crumbs form. In a sauté pan over medium heat, warm 1 Tbs. of the olive oil. Add the bread crumbs, thyme and a sprinkle each of salt and pepper, and cook, stirring constantly, until the bread crumbs are browned and crisp, about 5 minutes. Scrape the bread crumbs onto a plate.

3. Wipe out the sauté pan and return it to medium-high heat. Add the remaining 1 Tbs. olive oil. Add the shallots and garlic and sauté until they begin to brown, 45 seconds. Add the spinach by the handful and toss with tongs until it is wilted, 2 minutes. Season with a pinch of salt. Place the spinach in the 2 gratin dishes. Crack 4 eggs into each dish, spacing them evenly. Pour the cream around the eggs and sprinkle with the tarragon, nutmeg and a little salt and pepper. Bake, rotating the baking dishes once, until the egg whites are set and the yolks are slightly runny, 12 to 15 minutes.

4. Remove the dishes from the oven. Sprinkle the toasted bread crumbs over the dishes, dividing evenly, and serve immediately. Serves 4.

Recipe Summary

  • 12 slices white sandwich bread
  • Melted unsalted butter, for brushing
  • 1/2 cup frozen chopped spinach, thawed, drained, and squeezed dry
  • 12 large eggs
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Using a sharp knife, cut off bread crusts. Brush both sides of bread slices with butter. Gently press one slice into each cup of a standard muffin tin. Place 1 tablespoon spinach in each bread cup, then crack an egg into each season with salt and pepper.

Bake until whites are set and yolks are still soft, 15 to 20 minutes. Serve.

Yes, you can easily make this dish without dairy. Omit the cream and cheese from the sauteed spinach. Add 1 tablespoon of olive oil at the end of cooking the spinach so it doesn't dry out while baking in the oven.

When the eggs and spinach are finished baking top them with some of the following garnishes:

  • Fresh chopped parsley - get the recipe at America's Test Kitchen
  • Grated Pecorino Romano cheese or your favorite cheese
  • Salsa

The dish is best served warm. I think you will really enjoy this tasty eggs floretine dish. It's great for breakfast or lunch and baking it makes it easy to prepare for a large group.

Please let me know if you make this dish by leaving me a note or tagging me on Instagram @bakesbybrownsugar. I can't wait to see your version of this dish.

Baked Eggs Florentine

  • 6 teaspoons butter or olive oil

  • 6 tbsp fresh spinach, chard leaves or other greens
  • 6 medium or large size eggs (large eggs may spill over edge of muffin cups so be sure to grease top of pan)


Preheat oven to 375°F. Use a non-stick coated 6 or 12-cup muffin pan, or coat muffin tin with cooking spray, butter or oil in addition to buttering the bread.

Baked eggs florentine

We've turned this traditional brunch recipe into a midweek meal that everyone's sure to enjoy.

(1½lb) new potatoes, quartered

Bring a medium pan of water to the boil and simmer potato pieces for 8-10min or until just tender. Drain potatoes and leave to steam dry until needed. Preheat oven to 170°C (150°C fan) mark 3.

Meanwhile, in a large separate pan, melt the butter over a gentle heat and fry the onion for 10min until softened. Stir in mustard and crème fraîche, then carefully mix in the potatoes and some seasoning. Empty into a rough 1.6 litre (2¾ pint) ovenproof serving dish.

Return empty onion pan to the heat and add the spinach. Cook, stirring, until wilted. Set aside for a few minutes until cool enough to handle. Lift handfuls of the spinach over the sink and squeeze out as much liquid as you can. Return the squeezed spinach to the pan and stir through the pesto and some seasoning.

Dot spinach on top of the potatoes. Make four wells in the mixture and crack in the eggs. Bake in the oven for about 25min or until whites are just set and the yolks are still runny. Serve immediately with toasted crusty bread.
