Well its Sunday and I was thinking what special should I eat today. Guess what popped in my head........yes its EGGS.. Now that am thinking I realize I have been eating eggs every weekend....... hehehe :D 
Well as for the story behind this recipe,I had already told that my fav restaurant is "The Egg Factory" they had a recipe called Egg Florentine.....frankly I didnt like their version but it gave me an idea for my version for of this recipe :) . Then I was watching disney channel and saw Wizards of Waverly Place and they were showing an episode where they had brunch for dinner and the father had made it. I somehow liked the idea but my dad is not here :(  so I had to make the dish for myself....
I have also added the recipe to Lets Do Brunch hosted by Chaya.

1 bunch
2 numbers
 2 numbers
1 medium sized
Red Chilli Powder
1 teaspoons
Black Pepper Powder
2 teaspoons
2 teapoon
3 tablespoons
Garlic cloves
4 numbers
1 cup
Half cup
Black Pepper
1 tablespoon
As per taste

  1. Slice the tomatoes into circular rings keeping them slightly thick.
  2. Heat little butter in a pan and add the tomatoes , sprinkle little salt and black pepper and toss it over and fry for 30 sec. 
  3. Sprinkle little salt and black pepper on the other side of the tomatoes and toss it over and fry for 30 sec and place it in a baking bowl.
  4. Cut the onion into julienne and set aside.
  5. Heat little butter again in a pan , add a pinch of salt and little sugar and add the onion julienne.
  6. Fry the onions till it caramelize then add a few drops of vinegar and fry again for 2 min more. 
  7. When the onions are done place them on top of the tomatoes in the baking bowl.
  8. Chop the spinach roughly. Grate the garlic cloves.
  9. Heat little butter again in a pan , add a pinch of salt and grated garlic.
  10. When the garlic turn light brown , add the spinach and cook it over medium heat. This would take some time around 20 min.
  11. When the spinach's water is dried up , add 1 tablespoon of cream and cook it for 3-4 min more.
  12. Place the cooked spinach on top of the caramelized onions in the baking bowl.
  13. Poach 2 eggs. There are 2 ways of doing so you can use any one of that (click here to know more).                           
    > Set a saucepan to boil that is about two-thirds full of water.
    > Add a dash of white vinegar.
    > Spin the boiling water to cool down the water before you drop in the egg.
    > Carefully crack an egg and lower or drop it into the center of the whirlpool.
    > Wait 3-4 minutes until cooked.
    > Remove with a slotted spoon and transfer each egg onto the plate, letting excess water drip back into the saucepan.
    > Heat oil in a pan.
    > Carefully crack an egg and lower or drop it into the center of the pan.
    > Add a pinch of salt and black pepper.
    > Turn over the egg and fry the other side as well.

  14. Place the poached eggs on top of the creamy spinach in the baking bowl.
  15. Heat butter in a pan , add the flour and stir. 
  16. Stirring constantly add the milk and cook till the sauce slightly thickens. Then add the cream and cook again till the sauce gets proper creamy.
  17. To the creamy sauce add the salt and red chilli powder and cook for 2-3 min.
  18. Pour the sauce on top of the poached egg.
  19. Add grated cheese on top of the creamy sauce and bake for 2 min. And done :) .                            
                                          I had it with garlic bread.......... :)
