Cook the potatoes in plenty of salted water with the skin on.

Prepare cream spinach
Most important step:
Wash the spinach leaves in plenty of cold water and change the water 2-3 times depending on the degree of soiling.
Sand and other unwanted substances can only be removed by washing and moving the spinach several times in water.
Place the leaf spinach on a sieve and drain or squeeze.
Remove the stalks from the leaves or leave the stalks on the leaves for more fibre in the vegetables.
Onions and garlic
Halve and peel the shallots and garlic clove.
Both ingredients are easier to peel halved! and cut finely into cubes.
Please use a sharp knife and do not chop the ingredients.
Sweat the shallots and garlic cubes in a large pot with the butter for a few minutes until translucent.
Cut the peeled and halved onion into fine cubes.
Cut the peeled garlic into fine litters.
Do not press the garlic, it will become bitter in taste.
Sweat the prepared garlic and onion cubes in a large pot or in a high pan with the butter for a few minutes until translucent.
Add the washed and drained spinach leaves.
Cook spinach vegetables
Cook the leafy vegetables with lid over high heat for 2-3 minutes, the leaves collapse.
Mix the starch in cold water.
If you stir the starch in cold water and then add it to the hot liquid, the starch will not clump!
Add the cream and bring to the boil once.
Flavour with salt, pepper, cayenne pepper and nutmeg and leave to stand next to the stove without lid.
Mix the spinach with a hand blender.
Bring the creamed spinach to the boil again before serving and season to taste.
Add some butter, ghee and lemon juice.

Prepare the fried egg: It takes time, a good pan, butter and a patient cook…Preparation tip from chef Thomas Sixt
At this point I would like to add a gourmet tip.
In the truffle season you can put a truffle with some eggs for three days in a glass.
Close the glass and put it in the fridge.
The eggs absorb the truffle aroma and taste delicious.
Alternatively, use white truffle oil, drizzle the oil over the dish!
This will conjure up a wonderful aroma on the table!

The egg dish is prepared very quickly and when the potatoes are floating in the water with their skins on, it just doesn’t fit.
I have briefly summarized the work steps for you here…

- Wash the spinach leaves several times in cold water.
- Remove the wilted leaves, leave the leaf stalks (rich in fibre) on the leaves, they will be mixed anyway!
