momo fuk-u gently eggs florentine


my lover called to alert me as to when I should expect her arrival from the airport...
...i decided to prepare for her a seductive meal...
"momo fuk-u eggs - florentine".


momofuku poached eggs - florentine

  • 4 x-large eggs
  • 2 bunches of spinach 
  • 2 tablespoons butter 
  • 2 cloves thin sliced garlic
  • 5 strips bacon
doin' it
  • place a veggie-steamer in a deep pot 3/4 full of water and heat low to 140 degrees. 
  • insert a meat thermometer & add cool water if necessary to maintain temperature. 
  • gently place the eggs into the pot & cook for 40 to 45 minutes. (smaller eggs cook 30-35 min)
  • set a timer but check temperature regularly.
  • gently crack eggs near the top, peel away a 1 inch hole and "pour" each egg into it's own saucer.
  • lightly sauté 2 bunches of spinach with butter & garlic
  • cook bacon to taste. (toaster oven for small batches is my preference)
  • scoop drained spinach onto two plates.
  • with clean hands, form the spinach into a mound, make two nest like indentations in the mounds.
  • pour one egg into each mound.
  • garnish with 2 inch cuts of bacon 
...i squint seductively as i hear the jingle of keys in the door...

...and wearing nothing but a beguiling smile and my trademark powder blue boa...

...i greet her with a primal coo.

she greets me with 8 members of her extended family.

i knew my lover was freaky, but... damn! 

"bring 'em on baby, bring 'em on!"
