Pour the remaining milk and butter into a nonstick saucepan and bring it to a boil. Then reduce the heat to a simmer.

Stir the boiling milk into the cornstarch mixture, then pour it back into the saucepan. Bring it to a boil again while stirring. Once it thickens, let it simmer for 2 minutes.

Step 4

Remove the saucepan from heat and add Gruyère cheese, salt, pepper, and optional nutmeg. Cover the sauce surface with parchment paper to prevent skin from forming. Set it aside in a warm place.

Add spinach to the saucepan and stir over medium heat for 2-3 minutes until the spinach wilts and the leeks become tender.

Step 7

Drain the vegetables using a sieve or fine mesh strainer, pressing down with a spoon to remove excess moisture. Return them to the saucepan and season with dill, salt, and pepper. Cover and keep warm.

Step 8

In a medium-sized frying pan, fill it halfway with water and bring it to a simmer. Add vinegar. Gently break the eggs into the water and cook them for 3-4 minutes, spooning the hot water over the yolks. Use a slotted spoon to remove the eggs and drain them on a paper towel.

Step 9

Preheat the broiler. Place whole wheat toast slices on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Spread the leek and spinach mixture evenly over each slice. Make a hollow in the spinach mixture using the back of a spoon and place a poached egg in each hollow.

Step 10

Spoon the cheese sauce over the eggs. Lightly sprinkle paprika on top, then place the dish under the broiler. Broil until it turns just lightly browned.
