  • 100 g spinach
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 slice smoked ham roughly chopped
  • 30 g California walnuts toasted and chopped
  • 1 tbsp finely chopped chives


  • Preheat the oven to 200°C.
  • Wash the spinach, then wilt down in a saucepan (no need to add any extra water).
  • Plunge the wilted spinach into cold water and drain through a colander. Squeeze out as much water as possible with your hands, scrunching the leaves up into a ball. Slice finely and put to one side.
  • Separate the eggs, placing the yolks into a small bowl and the white into a large mixing bowl. Whisk the whites until you have stiff peaks, then fold in the spinach and ham.
  • Line a baking tray with parchment and spoon the white mixture onto the tray to form four cloud shapes. Using a teaspoon make a small indentation in each, then carefully place one yolk into each cloud.
  • Place into the oven and bake for 5-7 minutes, or until the white is tinged golden but the yolk is still runny.
  • Sprinkle with walnuts and chives to serve.
