Creamed Spinach with Egg – Spinaċi bil-krema u bil-bajda

This is a very quick snack my grandma use to make for us when we were children.


fresh spinach

fresh nutmeg

fresh cream


little butter


1 egg


  1. Remove the stalk from the spinach.  Wash and cook without adding any water.  Do not over cook, because it will loose its bright green colour.
  2. When cooked, remove from pan, drain well and put in a large mixing bowl.  Chop and add some freshly grated nutmeg and seasoning.
  3. In a large frying pan heat some oil and cook the spinach on low heat till all the liquid is absorbed.  Whilst cooking you have to stir the spinach frequently.  Add 2 tablespoons of fresh cream.  Mix well.
  4. In another frying pan melt some butter and fry the egg.  Season according to taste.
  5. Serve the egg on top of the spinach with potatoes.
