1/2 cup fresh bread crumbs (made from crustless rustic white bread)

5 tsp dijon mustard, divided

2 tsp olive oil

1/2 tsp mustard seeds or ground mustard

1 9-oz package fresh spinach

1 tsp chopped fresh thyme

2 large eggs

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

Toss crumbs with 2 teaspoons mustard, 2 teaspoons olive oil and mustard seeds and coat. Bake until golden brown about 6-8 minutes. Set aside.

Meanwhile add enough water to the bottom of a non-stick skillet. Add spinach and cook over high heat until it is wilted. Drain well pushing out any excess liquid.
