Was looking for an easy Saturday supper, this was it!! We loved them, I used spreadable herb & garlic no fat cream cheese and olive oil instead of butter, also used fresh spinach. Made the whole recipe of the spinach/cheese mix but just 4 eggs, one little addition, I added a slice of tomato on top of the spinach. Lovely quick supper, I will make these again, thanks for posting.

Prepared these for Sunday brunch. I cut the recipe in half reducing the eggs to 1 each. This recipe is quick and goes together easy. I served this on top of toasted English Muffin biscuits. I made this recipe even quicker by using my recipe, Microwave Poached Eggs #118761, and topped it off with freshly grated Parmesan cheese. The next time I make these, I will probably add some red pepper flakes to add a little zip.
