Fried Eggs With Mustard-Creamed Spinach And Breadcrumbs

I found this recipe on Pintrest.. It is compliments of a site called Serious Eats.. We were not really hungry as we kind of cleaned out the fridge of leftovers for lunch.. I was feeling kind of lazy and wanted to try something new but easy.. This is simple to make and not to heavy.. The only changes that I made was, I used evaporated milk instead of half and half.. And I used store bought bread crumbs..     I hope that you may try it on one of your Lazy not so hungry days 🙂

1 cup fresh breadcrumbs 
3 tablespoons Dijon mustard
4 tablespoons olive oil
1 teaspoon mustard seeds
18 ounces fresh spinach leaves
1/2 cup half-and-half
2 teaspoons chopped fresh thyme leaves
4 large eggs

Preheat oven to 400°F. Combine bread crumbs, half mustard, half oil, and mustard seeds in small bowl. Spread on baking sheet and bake until golden and crisp, 8-10 minutes.

In the meantime, heat enough water to cover bottom of medium skillet unti boiling. Add spinach and cook until wilted, 2-3 minutes, then remove and squeeze out excess water. Discard water in skillet and wipe dry.

Heat remaining mustard, half-and-half, and chopped thyme over medium. Cook until slightly thickened, about 3 minutes, then add spinach and stir to combine. Season to taste with salt and pepper and keep simmering.

Heat remaining oil in large skillet over medium heat until shimmering. Add eggs and cook without turning until whites are cooked through, 3-4 minutes. Divide spinach amongst 4 plates, top with eggs, and finish with breacrumbs. Serve immediately. 

It was really yummy.. Thanks again to Serious Eats
