Eggs Florentine

A fantastic English recipe for delicious eggs.


  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon white vinegar
  • 2 slices of bread
  • 1/2 tablespoon butter
  • 1 clove garlic
  • a handful of fresh salad spinach
  • salt and freshly ground black pepper


Prepare the Hollandaise sauce (use half of the specified ingredients for 2 servings).

Poached Eggs: (see video below) Fill a medium saucepan with water to about 8 cm height. Add salt and vinegar. Crack each egg into separate bowls.

Once the water boils, reduce the heat to medium and swirl the water with a spoon to create a whirlpool. Carefully slide one egg into the center of the whirlpool and cook for about 2.5 minutes until the egg white is set but the yolk remains runny. Remove with a slotted spoon onto a plate and repeat with the second egg.

Spinach: In a pan, melt butter and add sliced garlic. Sauté until the garlic turns slightly golden, then add spinach, season with salt, and stir with a wooden spoon for a moment until the spinach wilts.

Toast the bread in a toaster until golden brown. Place sautéed spinach on each slice and top with a poached egg. Drizzle with Hollandaise sauce, season with salt and freshly ground pepper.

Enjoy your delicious Eggs Florentine!
