8 portions
  • 570 grams spinach
  • 1/2 onions, chopped
  • 1 clove garlic
  • 1 pinch nutmeg
  • 2 tablespoons whipping cream
  • 8 eggs
  • 10 tablespoons butter, (for the hollandaise sauce)
  • 2 egg yolks, (for the hollandaise sauce)
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice, (for the hollandaise sauce)
  • tabasco sauce, drops, (for hollandaise sauce)
  • breads, or bagels cut into strips and toasted (to serve)


Preheat the oven to 375ºF (190º centigrade).
Cook the spinach in a pot with a little water until it is completely reduced, about 2 minutes.
Put on a colander and drain well squeezing to remove all the liquid.
In the pot where you cooked the spinach, add the onion and cook with a spoonful of butter until it is translucent, add the finely chopped garlic . Return the drained spinach and add the 2 tablespoons of cream. Season with salt, pepper and a pinch of nutmeg. Reserve.
Grease the souffle molds (ramekins) with butter.
Divide the spinach between the souffle molds and put the raw eggs on top (you can put 1 egg or 2 per mold). Bake for 15 minutes (if it's an egg only) or 18 minutes (if it's 2 eggs).
Prepare the hollandaise sauce. First, melt the 10 tablespoons of butter previously cut into pieces in a bowl in the microwave until they are ¾ melted (there should still be a few pieces left).
Put the two egg yolks in a blender, along with the lemon juice, tabasco drops, salt, and pepper. Stir well.
With the blender on, add the ¾ melted butter and let everything mix well. There must be a thick and creamy sauce. Try and add more salt and pepper if necessary.
Remove the eggs from the oven and put a spoonful of hollandaise sauce on each one.
Serve with toasted bread in strips.


You can try cooking an egg first in the oven and confirm if the time is right for the desired term.
