  3. Break the egg into the bowl, add 150ml of milk and beat to a smooth paste.
  4. Stir in the remaining 150ml of milk to make a thin batter. You can use the batter immediately or refrigerate for up to 12 hours if you wish.

  6. Stir the melted butter into the batter.
  7. Pour or spoon some batter into the hot pan and roll it out to the edges.

  9. Turn the pancake over and cook the other side for 1-2 minutes.
  10. Transfer the galette onto a plate.
  11. Repeat until the batter is used.

  5. Lay out the galette(s) on a clean work surface.
  6. Rub a little softened butter in the middle of each galette.
  7. Arrange the spinach in a 10cm/4” circle in the middle of the galette.
  8. Finely grate the Comté and sprinkle it over the spinach.
  9. Break an egg into the centre of the cheesy spinach circle.
