    Eggs Florentine



    • Preparation time: 10 minutes
    • Cooking time: 10 minutes
    • Total time: 20 minutes 20 minutes

    Serves: 4


    4 Waitrose Duchy Organic Large British Free Range Eggs
    2 x 200g packs Waitrose Duchy Organic Spinach, roughly chopped
    2 tbsp essential Waitrose Low Fat British Crème Fraîche
    1–2 tsp Waitrose Duchy Organic Wholegrain Mustard With Honey
    90g pack Waitrose Duchy Organic Roasted Ham With Scottish Heather Honey
    4 Waitrose Duchy Organic Wholemeal Muffins, split and toasted (selected stores)
    2 tbsp snipped chives


    1. Bring a large pan of water to the boil. Crack an egg into a cup, then gently tip into the boiling water. Repeat for all 4 eggs. Remove the pan from heat and set it aside for 4-5 minutes until the eggs are softly set.

    2. Meanwhile, place the washed spinach in a large saucepan. Cover with a lid and cook gently for 2 minutes until wilted. Drain and squeeze out any excess liquid.

    3. Put the cooked spinach into a bowl and mix in the crème fraîche and mustard. Place a slice of ham on each toasted muffin half and top with the spinach mixture.

    4. Top each with a poached egg. Sprinkle over the chives, season with black pepper and serve swiftly.

    Cook's tipFor a twist on the Florentine, this would work equally well with scrambled eggs, or use a slice of smoked salmon instead of the ham.
