Eggs Florentine

This is as elegant as the Eggs Benedict, but you can feel self-righteous and smug ‘cause your using spinach. 


4 tbsp butter

4 tbsp flour

Salt and pepper to taste

1/2 cup whole milk

10 oz. chopped frozen spinach

12 large eggs

1/4 cup parmesan cheese


Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.

Use a skillet to melt the butter.  Mix in the flour, salt and pepper and blend with a wooden spoon or whisk. 

Lower the heat and mix in the milk.  Stir continuously as the mixture gets thick.

Lightly butter a muffin pan.  Add 2 teaspoons of water to each muffin cup.

Crack the eggs and slide one into each cup.

Bake the eggs for 15 minutes.

While eggs are baking, heat the spinach in a microwave and drain the liquid.

Butter a 9 x 13 baking dish.  Transfer the spinach to the baking dish.  Divide the eggs over the spinach.  Spread the sauce and the parmesan cheese over the eggs.

Bake eggs for 5 minutes or
