  2. About 15 minutes before they are done, cook the spinach in boiling salted water for 5 minutes. Drain spinach, pressing down with a spoon to extract most of the liquid. Chop spinach coarsley and finish cooking in butter over high heat (about 5 minutes), stirring constantly. Season with salt and pepper. Add 1 teaspoon cream.
  3. Cut the top off the baked potatoes lengthwise and remove enough of the insides to make a hole large enough to contain 1 egg. Spread the spinach in a buttered dish. On top place the potatoes, each containing a raw egg. Dot with butter, season with salt and pepper, sprinkle with grated cheese, and broil potatoes 5 minutes or until the eggs are cooked.
  4. This dish makes a complete meal.
