Introduction

Just like an Eggs Benedict, a good, easy Eggs Florentine recipe contains a small number of very simple ingredients. Both are egg, bread, hollandaise sauce and either bacon or spinach. I actually prefer an Eggs Florentine. I like the lightness of the spinach compared to the fairly heavy, salty bacon, but I think both dishes have a very wonderful place in the world and I absolutely adore each at the right moment.

About this recipe

I’m currently working on some good, reliable recipes for crumpets and for English muffins. But for now I’m afraid I’m going to have to make use of pre-made versions of those ingredients. A muffin is more traditional as part of an Eggs Florentine, but I find crumpets do a far better job of soaking up all of that wonderful hollandaise sauce in all of those tiny holes. I’m sorry they’re not part of the recipe, at least for the time being!

Hollandaise sauce was amongst the first of the truly great sauces I ever learned to make. I had been cooking for a while, but there’s something special about the French sauces. It is a most decadent culinary language. Its recipes are laced with wonderful, indulgent things, filled with fat and richness in the form of creams, butters and reasons to wake up in the morning. That’s what this dish does and that’s why it’s wonderful.

So, if you’re in need of a good reason to wake up in the morning, just read this easy eggs Florentine recipe and make yourself a breakfast fit for a king. After all, who needs cornflakes?

Course Breakfast
Servings 1

Ingredients
  

  • 2 Eggs
  • 2 Crumpets
  • Spinach
  • Butter
  • Oil
  • Salt
  • 2 Tbsp Hollandaise Sauce

Instructions
 

  • First, start by making the hollandaise sauce, according to the recipe linked above.
  • Place a lightly oiled fying pan on high heat ready to go, and a saucepan on very low heat on another ring.
  • Fill the saucepan with boiling water and bring to a very light simmer.
  • Crack your eggs into a bowl first and use it to lower them gently and separately into the water. Don’t worry, they won’t stick together. You can swirl the water first if you like to improve the shape, but I don’t find this tremendously important. Vinegar is another completely optional assistive tool you can use, but don’t have to.
  • Butter the crumpets and place top down on the frying pan while the egg poaches. Cook them for long enough to colour and crisp. You can do the same to the bottom if you choose.
  • In another pan, heat and wilt the spinach with a little oil or water. This shouldn’t take long at all, but might take a bit of stirring.
  • Once the spinach is wilted, pat it dry with a paper towel and place on top of a crumpet, season if desired.
  • Once the eggs are ready, take them from the water and season with salt, then place them atop the spinach on the crumpets.
  • Dollop over a nice big tablespoon of hollandaise sauce and, if you so choose, season with a little paprika.
