Egg Florentine


This is a ‘Love me’ or ‘hate me’ dish I’ll assure you! However very simple and tasty to eat, with only 5 ingredients to make.  I always season with cracked black pepper and occasionally salt to taste, you can also add a sprinkle of chilli powder or for a herby taste, oregano or basil. You can have this as a lunch or dinner dish, to fill it out you could add a part-bake roll to dip.


Eggs, Milk, suitable for vegetarians.


Serves: 1

Spinach 100g

2 eggs

Milk 100ml

Cheese 30g

Corn flour – Tablespoon


Prep time: 15 minutes

Cook time: 30-40 minutes

1. Mix the flour and milk together and microwave for 1 minute, stir and repeat.

2. Add in half of the grated cheese and microwave for a minute at a time until thick.

3. Wilt the spinach through a sieve.Line the dish with some of the cheese sauce and spread out, this stops the sticking, layer half of the spinach in the dish, crack in the eggs and cover with the remaining spinach.

4. Pour over the cheese sauce on the top and sprinkle cheese on top.

5. Place in the oven until the cheese is golden on top (around 30 minutes) at 220˚C.
