    1. 1
      Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
    2. 2
      Melt the butter over medium heat in a saucepan.
    3. 3
      Add the flour and cook, stirring, about 2 minutes.
    4. 4
      Slowly add the milk while whisking constantly until smooth. Continue to cook, stirring occasionally until thickened, about 5 minutes, do not allow to scorch. Add the salt, black pepper and cheeses, stirring until cheese has melted. Remove from heat.
    5. 5
      Thaw spinach by cutting a slit in the top of the bag and microwave on high for 5 minutes. Drain spinach, squeezing to remove excess liquid (a clean kitchen towel works great for this). Coarsely chop the artichoke hearts.
    6. 6
      Meanwhile, in a large skillet, fry bacon until crisp. Set bacon aside and pour out all but 1 TBS bacon drippings. Stir in minced shallot and tomatoes until shallots are soft, about 5 minutes. Add garlic stirring for another minute. Add spinach and artichokes, tossing gently. Stir in the sauce until warmed through. Salt and pepper to taste.
    7. 7
      Divide mixture evenly between 4 ramekins or oven-proof bowls. Crack an egg into each ramekin, being careful not to break the yolk.
    8. 8
      Bake on middle rack until egg whites are firm but yolks are still runny, rotating pan halfway through cooking, 20 - 25 minutes. Crumble a bacon slice over each egg. Allow to cool for a few minutes and enjoy.

      We LOVED this. But it took nearly 1 1/2 hours from walking into the kitchen to sitting at the table. I would recommend starting the bacon before making the cheese sauce. I got 4 BIG servings of veggies/cheese sauce & I used 2 egs per kid & 3 eggs per adult. A VERY filling meal!!! This would be good for breakfast, brunch, lunch or dinner. Made for Hidden Gems 2/08.
