    Parma ham and spinach baked eggs

    Serves: 6
    Cooking Time: 15 mins


    • 16 slices Parma ham
    • 200g baby spinach
    • salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
    • 6 large free-range eggs
    • 60ml (¼ cup) fresh cream
    • 30ml (2 tbsp) Parmesan, grated



    Preheat the oven to 180ºC. Lightly grease 6 small ovenproof dishes.


    Line each dish with 2 slices of Parma ham, add the spinach and season.


    Crack an egg into each dish and add 10ml (2 tsp) cream to each egg.
