Print Spinach or chard gratin

This is a French classic. It could be a side to a weekend roast or to weekday baked potatoes; a bed for poached eggs; or just a standalone meal with a little bread to soak up the cream. Use an alternative to Parmesan to make it vegetarian.


  • 200g spinach or chard, cooked & chopped
  • 1 egg
  • 200ml double cream
  • 1 tbsp Parmesan, grated
  • Salt & pepper


  1. Preheat oven to 150°C/Gas 2.
  2. Mix spinach or chard with the egg, double cream, grated Parmesan and some seasoning.
  3. Bake in a gratin dish or in a pastry case at for about 25 minutes, until just set.
