Poached egg over spinach and shitake mushrooms

 You know when you just are craving breakfast for dinner? Well, this was a product of one of those nights. I saw a great tutorial on poaching eggs here and wanted to test it out. It worked perfectly! So easy and simple. I sauteed some spinach and shitaki mushrooms and layered it in a ramekin, topped with the poached egg. Next time I think I'll top it off with some feta. Delicious!

Poached egg with spinach and shitake mushrooms
(serves 1)
1 poached egg (follow tutorial here)
2 cups of fresh spinach
1/2 lb shitake mushrooms (any type will work)
1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
 salt 'n' peppa

1 While egg is poaching, saute spinach over medium heat until softened with some salt 'n' peppa.
2 Remove spinach once done, and in the same pan saute mushroom with thyme until softened.
3 Layer ramekin with spinach, mushroom and poached egg. Top with freshly ground pepper.

Hi Zoe,

Thanks for stopping by my blog and leaving a comment.

Poached egg with Shiitake and spinach sounds really healthy and sounds Japanese for some reason - but I think it's just the ingredients. ;)

That really is a beautifully poached egg. Poached eggs were not served in my house as a kid, but that trends start with my little ones (when and if I have them!).

I love the simplicity of this dish. I love spinach and eggs but am not a big fan of mushrooms.

Hi Zoe, nice to meet you and thanks for visiting my blog. Breakfast for dinner is a firm favorite in this household, and poached farm eggs are so good on so many things.

Also, love your braised leeks in the toaster oven--simple, brilliant!
