      This is a lower fat alternative to regular eggs benedict and is truly wonderful. I used French bread which was lightly toasted and baby spinach. I think that next time I make these; I will wilt the spinach leaves before using. A word of caution, when cooking the eggs, I would suggest that care be taken on the timing. I divided the recipe in half and cooked the eggs in individual custard cups. After 45 minutes they were set and were cooked perfect after standing a few minutes in the hot water. Food continues to cook after removing from the microwave.
