Eggs Baked over Sautéed Mushrooms and Spinach

Serves 4


1 tablespoon olive oil

1 large leek, white and light green parts only, cut into 1/2 inch pieces       

1 tablespoon unsalted butter

1 pound white or cremini mushrooms, thinly sliced (about 6 cups)

1 tablespoon soy sauce

1/4 cup dry red wine

5 ounces baby spinach

salt and pepper                   

4 large eggs

4 slices whole grain toast


Preheat oven to 350F. Heat up the oil in a deep skillet. Add the leek and cook over moderate heat, stirring until softened, about 3 minutes. Stir in the butter and mushrooms. Cover and cook, stirring occasionally until the mushrooms are softened and a lot of the liquid is released, 7 minutes. Uncover and add the soy sauce and red wine. Cook over moderately high heat, stirring until the liquid is reduced to 2 tablespoons, 5 minutes. Add the spinach and stir until wilted, 2 minutes. Season with salt and pepper.

Coat 4 1-cup ramekins or small gratin dishes with oil. Transfer the mushrooms and spinach to the ramekins and crack an egg on top of each. Bake 10-12 minutes, until the white is barely set and the yolks are runny. Let stand for 2 minutes and serve with the toasts.

Salmon Mousse Cups

3 ounces cream cheese softened

1/2 cup butter

1 cup all-purpose flour

2 tablespoons chicken broth

2 tablespoons sour cream

1 tablespoon finely chopped onion

1 teaspoon lemon juice

1/2 teaspoon salt

Beat the cream cheese and butter in a small bowl until smooth. Add flour and mix well. Shape into 24 balls. Press onto the bottom and up the sides of miniature muffing cups.

Bake at 350F for 10-15 minutes or until golden brown. Cool for 5 minutes before removing from pans to wire racks to cool completely.

For filling, beat the cream cheese in a bowl until smooth. Add the salmon, broth, sour cream, onion, lemon juice and salt until blended. Spoon into the shells. Refrigerate for 2 hours at least. Sprinkle with dill.
