Make little holes in the spinach mixture. Place them on a baking sheet and bake them for 8 minutes (200 Celsius degrees). Take them out, and crack an egg into every hole. Return then to the oven and let them bake form another 8-10 minutes.

Since it’s autumn, the weather is cold, refresh yourselves with seasonal fruit and hot tea with biscuits. Summer is over, no one’s counting the calories anymore. 😉
While I was in Switzerland I tried this amazing Tencha ice tea, made out of green tea and pomegranate. If you stumble upon it, buy yourselves couple of bottles and enjoy (and to me too :D).
That’s all for now, bon appetite to everyone,
