This frittata-like dish is based on a recipe from “At Elizabeth David’s Table” by Elizabeth David. She calls the preparation a “tian,” the French Provençal term that refers to a shallow round earthenware vessel, as well as the dishes baked in it. In our version, we cook the potatoes and wilt the spinach in a skillet on the stovetop but combine the ingredients in a deep-dish pie plate and bake them in the oven. Serve the eggs warm or even at room temperature, with a simple leafy salad to round out the meal. If not serving immediately, hold off on adding the basil garnish—the heat of the eggs will cause it to darken.

Don't allow the potatoes and spinach to cool completely before adding the eggs. Their heat helps jump-start the cooking process for slightly faster baking. Also, don't underbake the eggs or the texture will be soft and a little runny. To check for doneness, gently shake the pie plate. The center of the eggs should be firmly set, not at all jiggly.
