  • 2 very fresh free range organic eggs
  • 2 slices of proper bread (flour, water, yeast, salt) – sourdough is good here
  • real butter
  • handful of spinach leaves
  • a few parmesan shavings


Boil a frying pan of water, no vinegar or swirling required. Crack your fresh eggs in and poach them. If they are properly fresh they will poach beautifully.

Meanwhile toast the bread and butter it generously. We recommend Netherend Farm butter for its taste.

Pile the spinach leaves on the toast and top with the poached eggs. You can sauté the spinach – you’ll need 3-4 times as much.

Finish with a few parmesan shavings, sea salt and black pepper.
