Spinach and Gruyere Cakes

This one is not exactly easy, but believe us, it’s worth all the effort. You need to cook the spinach in milk and then mix it with a creamy mixture of butter and flour. Add yolks and make this really cheesy with Gruyere and parmesan. You can also, increase the creaminess factor with sour cream. Let’s get on with it!

Well, I love to eat! I guess I always did. Tasty foods, traditional foods, fast-foods, healthy foods and, again, not so healthy ones. You name it.
