  • black pepper
  • 3 eggs
  • 3 tbsp single cream

2. Lift the spinach into a shallow gratin dish and make three hollows using a spoon. Break an egg into each and add the cream, salt and pepper. Sprinkle with Parmesan and nutmeg.

3. Cover with film and microwave at 650W for about 1 minute so that the yolks are still a little soft.

4. Serve with crusty bread.
