I know, I know, I am egg-obsessed. I can’t help myself – the egg is just a perfect thing to behold. Easy, quick, good and good for you. Eggs are my go-to dinner when I have had a long day and want a very quick but creative supper, and so I collect egg ideas wherever I go. I made this one at the end of a long week and it was just the thing…comfort food with just a little bit of elegance in the creamy goat cheese mixed up with the baby spinach.
Here’s the deal on this one: you need some pretty nice bread — sourdough, ciabiatta or something similar. You brush it with olive oil and sprinkle it with salt and toast it up until it is golden and crunchy. The baby spinach is sauteed quickly, and you toss the goat cheese in with it until it makes a creamy little goat cheesy sauce. Last but not least, gently fry that egg — sunnyside up or over easy, whatever floats your boat. Bread, topped with spinach, topped with egg, topped with fresh ground pepper. Priceless.
This has been a public service annoucement from the incredible edible egg.
