Hi, I am a German Chef and Food Photographer. The imparting of cooking knowledge is my great passion. Everyone can cook for himself and with this website I would like to contribute to its success. Cooking questions I answer you gladly at the end of the articles. Have fun and good luck!

I’ll show you my recipe eggs with spinach today. This is a classic of German cuisine: many of us know fried eggs with creamed spinach and potatoes as a traditional dish on Maundy Thursday and Good Friday. The preparation I show you with many step by step photos in addition the video fried egg perfect roast accompanies you while cooking. Now let yourself be tempted to cook, we leave the frozen spinach in the supermarket today and prepare everything fresh. I wish you a lot of fun reading, good luck and a good appetite!

1. Which egg goes with this dish?

You can prepare the egg as a poached egg, scrambled egg, baked egg or egg in a bowl. All variations taste delicious, I prefer to stick to the well-known fried egg and the preparation I show you in the following video.
Prepare the fried egg: It takes time, a good pan, butter and a patient cook…
At this point I would like to add a gourmet tip. In the truffle season you can put a truffle with some eggs for three days in a glass. Close the glass and put it in the fridge. The eggs absorb the truffle aroma and taste delicious. Alternatively, use white truffle oil, drizzle the oil over the dish! This will conjure up a wonderful aroma on the table!

2. Preparing the side dishes

Preparing fried eggs is in progress, now we are dealing with the side dishes, which you please prepare first. The egg dish is prepared very quickly and when the potatoes are floating in the water with their skins on, it just doesn’t fit. I have briefly summarized the work steps for you here…
Poached egg on spinach and wild herbs, an ideal recipe for Easter.
The poached egg on the spinach leaves, surrounded by wild herb blossoms, looks splendid. I cut the egg open at the table or just before serving, so that the liquid or waxy yolk becomes visible.
Poached egg on leaf spinach is another variation. Here surrounded by wild herb blossoms. I’ll show you the recipe elsewhere.
