Reserve them at the entrance to the oven, off, with the door open, long enough to cook the patties.

Pan-fry them over medium heat, 5 to 8 minutes on each side, until golden brown. Drain on paper towels.

Prepare fresh spinach: one by one, remove the fibrous ribs from the leaves (keep only the soft green of the leaves).
To do this, fold the leaf in half, the rib in the middle, then gently pull the rib from the base to the top of the leaf.
Wash the spinach several times with plenty of water (earthy vegetables), then drain.
