A quick and easy breakfast idea to get some fibre and added nutrients into your morning meal. Baby spinach leaves – when cooked well – are buttery and amazing, and I could have it with just about anything. Since many of my readers want more egg and/or breakfast ideas, I think poached eggs on spinach is a great option to post to make your morning meal a little more interesting. (Be sure to also check out other Breakfast ideas on the site…)
Crack the eggs into individual ramekins (for easier poaching).
Bring a pan of water to the boil and add the vinegar. Reduce to a simmer and give the water a stir to create a swirl. Add the eggs one at a time by lowering the ramekin into the water and tipping the egg into it.
Cook for about 3-4 minutes, then remove the eggs with a slotted spoon and place onto a plate lined with kitchen paper.
Melt the butter in a large pan and once foaming, add the chopped spinach and cook, stirring continuously until the spinach has completely wilted. Season with salt.
Divide the spinach between two plates and add a tablespoon of cream cheese on top of each.
Top with the poached eggs and season with Pink Himalayan Salt and freshly ground black pepper before serving.

In short, you need not subtract anything further.
