A chicken is hatched even from such a well-sealed thing as an egg.

LOL! Believe it or not, but I have never seen Egg Florentine in real life before, let alone eat it or make it. But the name sounds fancy and I have seen some nice pictures of it. So, I gave it a try … trying to follow the recipe closely. This is how mine turns out!!
Is this right? Honestly, tell me. It sure did not closely resemble some of the images I googled.
It looks terrible but does taste quite OK — trust me, the boys told me so. If you let me know where I went wrong, I’ll try again and post my Eggs Florentine version 2.0.
- 9 oz. frozen chopped spinach, thawed
- 4 eggs, soft-boiled
- 1 oz. butter
- 1 oz. plain flour (3 tablespoons)
- 1 1/4 cups milk or cream
- 6 oz. cheddar cheese, grated (1 cup)
- Salt and pepper
The egg florentine is to be served hot. This is a very creamy and nutritious meal and it’s good for brunch. The picture below looks OK, ain’t it? That’s it, version 1.0. Stay tuned for version 2.0!!
