My favourite Greek breakfast

Eggs on wilted spinach and fried bread. 

This summer, my family and I spent a few weeks in Greece. The hotel we lived in on the lovely iceland Hydra, served the most beautiful breakfast one morning; fried bread, wilted spinach and a perfectly fried egg on top. It takes only a few minutes to make, and I love the thought of having spinach for breakfast!
