Poached Egg Florentine – Easy with Spinach and a Light Cheese Sauce
We love poached eggs and eat them every day for breakfast! You can read more about that here where we show you our favorite ever super egg poacher pan.
On weekends we like to “healthy up” our eggs by serving them Florentine Style.
What is Eggs Florentine? Poached eggs over a bed of spinach with tangy cheesy sauce. And since we always like to serve and eat protein with our breakfast, we tuck this tasty turkey patty underneath it all. It makes a complete and healthy breakfast when you add a small side of fruit.

- Season the turkey patties with a little garlic and sage or a couple shakes of soy sauce.
- You can definitely use fresh spinach for this egg recipe. Clean spinach under running water and shake to dry. Toss all of the spinach into a skillet with a small amount of chicken broth or water. Lightly salt & pepper. Cook until spinach wilts and is soft. Drizzle with olive oil.
What is the Difference Between Eggs Florentine and Eggs Benedict?
The main difference is the addition of cooked spinach to the Eggs Florentine. Eggs benedict is poached eggs served on top of an English muffin with ham and savory sauce.
