10 December 2014

This cozy dish is a filling brunch or simple dinner. You can put it together in a flash, which is ideal for a week day night during the bustling holiday season.

a poached egg on sauteed spinach with garlic & red onions. 
serves 2

4 slices of thick cut bacon, sliced into 1" chunks
3 small red onions or shallots, peeled & chopped
2 cloves of garlic
1 bunch of fresh spinach, washed & dried
sea salt & cracked pepper to taste

  1. Heat a cast-iron or heavy-stock pan on medium heat. Add the bacon and cook until the pieces are crispy. Remove from the pan onto a paper towel lined plate. 
  2. Add the onions in the hot pan and bacon fat (if the pan seems dry add a little extra virgin olive oil). Cook for 6-8 minutes until tender. Add a pinch of salt and pepper. Add the garlic slices and cook for another minute or two (be careful not to let the garlic burn). 
  3. Add the spinach and cook another minute or two, stirring to get the spinach evenly wilted, but not overly wilted as you still want a little texture to the dish. Stir in the bacon slices and divide among two serving bowls or plates. 
  4. Top with the poached eggs and season to taste once more. 
happy eatings & cheers!
