Fried Eggs with Creamy Spinach and Toast Soldiers
Preparation10 minCook Time10 minTotal Time0:20
tablespoons olive oil, divided
medium yellow onion, diced small
garlic cloves, minced
ounces baby spinach
Pinch of ground nutmeg
Pinch of cayenne pepper flakes
tablespoons heavy cream
tablespoons cream cheese
Plenty salt and pepper, to taste
Heat one tablespoon of the olive oil over medium heat in a nonstick or well-seasoned frying pan. Add the onion and cook, stirring occasionally, until starting to soften, about 5 minutes. Add the garlic and cook for one minute more.
Add the spinach, in batches if necessary, and cook until wilted. If there's a lot of liquid in the pan at this stage, you may wish to pour it off. (Sometimes there is, sometimes there isn't -- depends on the spinach.)
Add the nutmeg, cayenne, heavy cream, cream cheese, and some salt and pepper. Stir to combine well. Simmer until the sauce is reduced enough to mostly cling to the spinach. Taste for salt and pepper and divide between two shallow bowls.
Wipe out the frying pan. Add the remaining tablespoon of olive oil. Fry the eggs in the pan to your liking, and slide two eggs into each bowl. Cut the toast into strips ("soldiers," as the English call them) for dipping into the yolk and cream, and garnish each bowl with a few. Serve immediately.
