"In an effort to remove most processed white stuff - flour and sugar - from my diet, have recently begun to experiment more with grains. One Sunday I was in the mood for something decadent like Eggs Benedict or Eggs Florentine and came up with this. Thought it was good enough for sharing. The recipe requires a bit of work so for convenience, one could make this with either store bought or left over polenta wedges. Country Lady has great instructions for making poached eggs (#79662) if you need more detail. This would work well for those in the later phases of the South Beach Diet."

"I made this for breakfast. I realized I had left over collard greens in the fridge so I substitued them for the spinach. This would make a good breakfast, brunch or light dinner meal. Thank you for sharing."
"Delicious. I scaled this down to 1 serving for my lunch. Really liked the sauteed greens and eggs on the polenta. Lot of good flavours going on here. Thanks."
"I haven't made this yet but it reminds me of a dish I had at a restaurant that I have since made at home. Fresh spinach or arugula lightly sauteed, polenta, and the poached eggs on top. For a really quick version I use grits and add a handful of grated romano or parmesan and another grating of cheese on top. Fast, good and easy!"
"I have always like eggs florentine and eggs benedict, so this is a nice twist on that. I like the use of polenta instead of bread and spaghetti sauce instead of hollendaise. Nice change for a weekend brunch or light supper."
"Made this for a quick supper last night and it was delicious! I had leftover polenta I wanted to use up and did not feel like cooking much. I was a bit dubious about the poached eggs but it was very good. I also used fresh spinach and it worked out well. This will become an old standby in my kitchen! Thanks for sharing a great easy recipe!!!"
"Oh, this is sooo good! I would make this again and again. I halved the recipe as The Beau is working tonight, plus I'm not sure how his Picky Eater Personality will do with this, but I don't care now! Leaves more for me me me! The only minor change I made was using fresh spinach as I had some on hand. I can't wait to make it again, thank you for experimenting and posting, toni."
