Poached Eggs with Sautéed Chilli Spinach

Now I am a big fan of a bacon sandwich on a weekend morning, but on this occasion I urge you to do your body a post-Christmas favour and treat it to some spinach instead! It's (almost) as satisfying and will leave you feeling full of energy instead of needing to go back to bed. Although you can still do that. Or eat it in bed. That sounds good too.

While your eggs are poaching, simply heat a non-stick frying pan over a medium heat, then add a few handfuls of spinach. Season with salt and pepper and some dried chilli flakes, and drizzle with some good olive oil. Keep tossing the spinach in the pan. It will only take 3-4 minutes for the spinach to wilt down and be ready.

Pile onto hot buttered wholemeal toast, top with two poached eggs, and a drizzle more olive oil. Dig in and feel a little bit virtuous.

(Oh and don't forget to take an oozy-yolk-food-porn shot!)
