Method

 
Tear spinach leaves from stalks and wash thoroughly. Put wet leaves in a pan, adding a little salt. Cover and cook over moderate heat for 5 minutes, shaking pan occasionally. It  should be wilted, tender and bright green. Drain.

Squeeze between 2 plates to remove excess water. Repeat until dry. Chop and mix in butter. Season with salt, white pepper and nutmeg.

Spread on base of greased ovenproof dish. Arrange eggs on top. If using hard-boiled eggs, place cut-side down. Pour warm cheese sauce over eggs, then sprinkle with cheese and breadcrumbs.

Bake in a preheated oven at 180ºC for 15 minutes until bubbling and hot.

Brown under grill if necessary.

Tip of the day

 
Softening pears
Some pears come to market rock hard, but if left at room temperature they will soften. Tucking them into a sealed paper bag with a banana speeds the process.
