Instructions Checklist

  • Meanwhile, in a large bowl, combine remaining 2 tablespoons oil with vinegar, mustard, and shallot; season with salt and pepper, and whisk to combine. Add spinach and Parmesan (do not toss); set aside.

  • When potatoes are done cooking, immediately transfer to bowl with spinach and dressing (reserve skillet). Toss salad until spinach is slightly wilted, and divide among 4 plates.

  • Heat skillet over medium, and gently crack eggs into skillet without breaking yolks; season with salt and pepper. Cook until whites are almost set, about 1 minute. Cover, turn off heat, and let stand until whites are just set but yolks are still soft, about 2 minutes more. Top each salad with a fried egg, and serve immediately.

Cook's Notes

We like a soft-cooked egg for the "sauce" it makes for the salad, but a firmer fried egg is tasty, too; cook it a minute or two longer before covering the skillet.

This dish was amazing! Very easy and the dijon mustard just made it fantastic. It did take longer to cook the potatoes though. I didn't have a shallot so I sliced a small onion very thin and added it to the potatoes when cooking rather than put it in the dressing. It came out great. Make sure the yolk on the egg is runny...it adds a lot of depth and flavor. It's a keeper!

Super amazing! Just made this for brunch. But I would cook the potatoes longer next time, 12-14 mins didn't do it for me, perhaps boil them a few minutes first. Otherwise really great recipe!

This is one of my favorite breakfast meals. I've made it for a large group on Christmas and it works great for that as long as you have a big electric, flat grill so you can fry several eggs at once. The sauce is amazing and how all the flavors come together and wilt the spinach just perfectly.

I have made and enjoyed this recipe as written, but tonight I tried a variation that was equally successful. A member of our household is on a no-carb diet, so I substituted zucchini for the potatoes. Everyone agreed it was just a delicious as the original recipe, so I pass along the suggestion.

This salad is delicious! Wow! Just made it tonight for the first time, and was extremely happy. The blend of parmesan, shallot and vinegar was money! It is also very quick. I HIGHLY recommend this one!

My whole household ended up trying this and they all wanted the recipe too! Delicious - and I'm a picky eater! And I didn't have red wine vinegar, but we took some interesting red wine (new) and mixed to some apple cider vinegar. Worked great!

i made this for dinner last night and it was delicious! i used items I had in the fridge only. i had only yellow mustard instead of brown but added a bit of horseradish to kick it up. I also added bacon since I had 2 slices left in the fridge. I also used and onion instead of a shallot. My husband was so surprised how delicious it was for a dinner entree!

Very tasty! You can easily get the dressing made, drinks poured, and the table set while the potatoes are cooking.
