Florentine Eggs Benedict

Ingredients
1
cup water
4
eggs
1/3
cup plain fat-free yogurt
3
tablespoons light mayonnaise dressing or salad dressing
2
teaspoons cornstarch
1
teaspoon prepared mustard
 
Dash ground red pepper
1/4
cup fat-free milk
 
Salt
 
Pepper
4
toasted French bread slices or English muffin halves
1
large tomato, sliced
12
large spinach leaves, stems removed
2
ounces very thinly sliced cooked smoked turkey or chicken

Directions

  1. For eggs, place water in a 1-quart microwave-safe casserole. Microwave, uncovered, on high for 2 to 3 minutes or until boiling. Gently break eggs into water. Prick each yolk and white. Cover with waxed paper; cook on high for 2 minutes. Let eggs stand, covered, while preparing sauce.
  2. For sauce, in a 1-quart microwave-safe bowl stir together yogurt, mayonnaise dressing, cornstarch, mustard, and red pepper; stir in milk. Cook, uncovered, on high for 2 to 3 minutes or until slightly thickened and bubbly, stirring after every minute. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Cover; set aside.
  3. Arrange bread slices or muffin halves on a large microwave-safe plate. Top each with one slice of tomato, 3 spinach leaves, and one-fourth of the turkey. With a slotted spoon, remove eggs from water; place on top of the turkey slices. Spoon some sauce over each serving. Cook, uncovered, on high for 1 to 2 minutes or just until heated through. Makes 4 servings.
