Fried Eggs with Wilted Spinach over a Toasted Knish

28 Apr

Sometimes life gets hectic and you need emergency, super fast food. Like 15 minutes between work and an appointment but you can’t possibily eat another granola bar as a meal emergency food. That’s where this meal stems from. I had a package of knishes in the house but the nutrition teacher in me wanted something green and some protein with it so I didn’t feel too guilty. Just because this is an emergency meal does not mean this is not delicious. Actually, it happens to be one of my favorite mixtures on the planet. Crispy potato knish and soft, wilted spinach mixing together with the oozing warm yolk. Trust me, you need to try this, emergency or not.

Fried Eggs with Wilted Spinach over a Toasted Knish www.lessonsinfood.wordpress.com original recipe

  • 1 potato knish
  • 1 cup fresh baby spinach
  • 1 egg
  • 1 -2 tsp olive oil olive oil
  • salt and pepper

Split and toast the knish in the oven or the toaster until really crispy on the edges. In a nonstick skillet, heat the olive oil and add the spinach until just wilted. Top the knish with the spinach. Add remaining oil to the pan and fry the egg over easy so the yolk is still runny. Season with salt and freshly ground pepper. Top knish and spinach with egg.

No – you cannot eat this in the car. Sit down, use a fork and knife. If you want car food, stick with granola bars.
