In a glass of water for a couple of minutes)

Pine nuts 10g

you will have to use a bowl for each yolk),

put a little breadcrumb, after which

you make a small dimple in the bread crumbs.

Carefully divide the yolk from the egg white

and insert only the yolk into the bowl. Be careful not to break it.

After that, cover the yolk with plenty of breadcrumbs.

Let the yolk rest for at least two hours.


Wash and clean the spinach.

In a pan, heat the olive oil and add the spinach.

Add salt by your test.

Cook the spinach for a couple of minutes till they soften.



Meanwhile, toast the pine nuts in a pan.

Add the pine nuts and raisins (without the water) to the spinach.

Then take the bowl with the yolk,

remove some bread on the surface,

and gently slide the breaded yolk on your palm.

and fry it for 30 seconds on each side.
