2 portions


  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 large eggs
  • 100g chopped onion
  • 100g chopped mushroom
  • 1 chilli
  • 2 slices ham / cooked meats
  • Handful baby spinach
  • 10ml pure maple syrup
  • Salt and pepper, to serve


  1. Preheat the oven to 190°C. Heat the oil in a large pan over a medium heat. Add the onion and mushrooms and cook for about five minutes, until the onions are translucent and the mushrooms are lightly browned.
  2. Chop the chillies, discarding the stalks and seeds, and slice the ham into strips. Stir them into the onions and mushrooms then add the spinach. Cook for a few minutes, until heated through. If any water accumulates in the pan, carefully drain. Season with pepper.
  3. Divide the mixture among two oven-safe ramekins (small bowls) that have been lightly greased with butter.
  4. Make a small indent in the centre of each mixture and carefully crack an egg into each, making sure to keep the yolks intact. Place the ramekins on a baking tray and bake until the whites are set but the yolks are still runny, about eight minutes should suffice.
  5. To serve, drizzle maple syrup on top allowing to absorb into recipe.

More about maple

The colour and flavour of maple syrup changes in subtle ways during the seasonal harvest

At the start of the sugaring season, the syrup is generally clear, with a light, sweet taste. It becomes darker with a caramelised flavour as the season progresses throughout the spring.

An unopened can of maple syrup keeps for many years

Once the can is opened, syrup should be kept in an airtight container in a cool place.

Maple spread doesn't contain any butter or dairy products

Like all 100% pure maple products, maple spread comes from the sap of the maple tree that’s all.
