my word, these are good! 
we had them for dinner, not breakfast.  i love breakfast for dinner!
i saw the recipe on pinterest and there was no question in my mind that they would be good.
i took a few short cuts and didn't really use the same measurements.
oh and the grocery store substituted bake at home rolls for the 
ciabatta i ordered but they were delicious! and i used
a different cheese.  two cheeses actually.
i used more garlic.  i forgot
the parsley.

bag of baby spinach, 160g
mozarella and gruyere cheese, 200g total
8 eggs
2 tablespoons thickened cream
salt and pepper
2 tablespoons butter
3 cloves garlic, minced
1/3 cup panko bread crumbs
8 bread rolls, i used bake at home ones

preheat oven to 400F/200C.

ppray a 9x13 baking dish with oil.  

cover the bottom of the baking dish with the spinach.  grate both cheeses over the spinach (only about 1/2 the cheese at this point).  crack the eggs over the top of the cheese, spacing them out evenly.  salt and pepper next.  then drizzle the cream.  grate the rest of the cheese.  bake 15-25 minutes til yokes are as runny or not runny as you like them. 

while the eggs are in the oven, melt the butter in a small sauce pan over a medium heat.  whisk constantly.  the butter will start to brown.  don't let it go too brown, or black ... that is burned.  (ask me how i know) the good news is that if you burn it, you have time to start over.  (again, ask me how i know!) the butter will be pretty hot at this point, turn off the heat and throw in the minced garlic.  keep stirring!  let the garlic brown a little bit and then stir in the panko into this garlicy buttery deliciousness.  

if you are using bake at home bread rolls, throw them in the oven according to the instructions on the pack.  mine took like 6 minutes.  

once the eggs are just about done, spoon the breadcrumb mixture over the top and pop back in the oven for a couple minutes.  they will crisp up a little bit.

cut the finished product into eight 'rectangles' and scoop one onto each bun.
