Let's get Cooking...

  1. Place the potatoes in a large pot, cover with water, and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat and simmer for 25 minutes or until the potatoes are tender.
  2. When the potatoes are cooked, drain and allow to steam for 10 minutes, then use a ricer to rice the potatoes back into a pan. Add the sour cream, butter, cheese, and chives and season with salt and pepper. Stir and mash together until everything is melted and the potatoes are smooth. Place into a piping bag and set aside.
  3. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Grease a 9 x 9-inch square baking dish with butter.
  4. In a saucepan, add water and bring to a boil. In a large colander over the sink, place the spinach and pour the boiled water over it. Use the back of a large spoon to squeeze out as much water as possible. Place it in the bottom of your baking dish, spreading evenly to cover the bottom. Next, sprinkle over the chopped tomato and onion.
  5. Whisk together the 8 eggs, cheese, 1 tablespoon chives, and season well with salt and pepper. Pour evenly over the vegetables in the bottom of the dish. Followed by the ham slices on top, covering the egg mixture to the edges.
  6. Pipe the mashed potato over the ham slices in a decorative pattern and then using the back of a spoon make 4 ‘wells’ in the top of the casserole.
  7. Bake in the oven for 1 hour, then remove and add the remaining 4 eggs to the wells. Place back into the oven for 5 minutes or until the eggs are cooked.
  8. Season the eggs and sprinkle the remaining chives on top. Let cool for a few minutes before serving.
