Creamed Spinach with Dippy Eggs Recipe


1 – 16 oz container of baby spinach
1 shallot, thinly sliced
3 cloves garlic, minced
1/2 tsp red pepper flakes
1 tbsp olive oil
1 container of Boursin cheese
1/2 cup heavy cream
4 eggs
Salt and pepper to taste
1 baguette for dipping


  1. In a large sauté pan, add olive oil, shallot, pepper flakes and garlic and cook over medium-high heat until slightly browned and aromatic.
  2. Add spinach and cook until wilted.
  3. Add boursin cheese, heavy cream, and simmer until the cheese is completely melted.
  4. Using a spatula, make little holes in the creamed spinach to crack each egg into. Turn the heat to low and cover with a lid. Cook for 3-4 minutes or until the egg whites are cooked but the yolks are still runny.
  5. Serve immediately with a warm and crispy baguette.
