This recipe for Florentine Eggs Benedict is a classic egg dish that gets a healthy twist when we top it with sliced tomato, fresh spinach, and smoked turkey. While we were at it, we adapted the recipe for the microwave oven.

  • 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.

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.

  • 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.
