As a child in Hungary, I remember having Creamed Spinach topped with a sunny side egg for lunch. I guess I liked it because I remember eating it. I know I like it now, and I tend to serve it with Hungarian Pork Schitzel, Mini Meatloaf Patties or even Homemade Pork Grilling Sausages. On the other hand, it would probably be good with a sunny side egg too!
