- Heat the oven to gas 6, 200°C, fan 180°C. Put the flour into a small mixing bowl, then slowly whisk in the beaten egg and milk until well combined and no lumps remain. Chill for 30 mins.
- Meanwhile, put the bacon onto a baking tray and cook for 8-10 mins until crisp, then set aside to cool.
- Melt a little butter in a 30cm frying pan set over a medium-high heat and ladle in a quarter of the batter. Swirl the pan until it’s covered, then cook for 2-3 mins on each side until golden brown. Remove the galette to a plate and continue to make three more. Mix the crème fraîche and mustard together in a small bowl.
- Put one galette onto a baking tray, then spoon a quarter of the crème fraîche mixture into the centre, leaving a 7cm border free all around. Scatter the spinach over the edges of the crème fraiche, then fold four sides of the galette over to make it a square shape. Lay in two rashers of bacon and crack an egg into the centre with a border of spinach and scatter over a few cherry tomato halves. Repeat with the remaining three galettes, then bake for 8-10 mins until the whites of the egg have set. Season well and scatter with a little parsley to serve.
