Deep-fried eggs on spinach

Deep-fried eggs on spinach

April 22nd, 2019 | main dishes

For those who still did not have enough eggs on this sunny Easter weekend… Crispy crumbed with almonds and inside as soft as butter. With fresh spinach leaves and cress. The good, old classic “spinach with egg” tastes so good – and without “blubb”.

Advertising made us believe for years, spinach must come from the freezer and have the certain (cream) “Blubb”. Nothing is right. Leaf spinach, fresh and without cream, is both a visual and a tasty treat, together with the deep-fried crumbed eggs – simply good!
