Recipe Ingredients for Artichoke Scrambled-Eggs Benedict

14 oz artichoke hearts
2 teaspoons chopped fresh oregano, divided
3 oz pancetta, chopped
2 tablespoons mayo light
2 tablespoons nonfat plain yogurt
2 teaspoons lemon juice
1 teaspoon water
4 large eggs
2 large egg whites
1/2 oz Neufchatel cheese

Recipe Directions for Artichoke Scrambled-Eggs Benedict

  1. Preheat oven to 425F. Coat baking sheet with cooking spray.

  2. Toss artichoke bottoms with 2 teaspoons oregano. Place them top-side down on half of a large baking sheet. Spread pancetta in an even layer on the other half. Roast until the artichokes are just beginning to brown and the pancetta is crispy, 12 to 14 minutes.

  3. Meanwhile, whisk mayonnaise, yogurt, lemon juice and water in a small bowl until smooth. Beat eggs and egg whites in a large bowl.

  4. Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Coat with cooking spray, then add the eggs and cook, folding and stirring frequently with a heatproof rubber spatula until almost set, about 2 minutes. Remove from the heat and fold in cream cheese, the remaining 1 teaspoon oregano and salt.

  5. To serve, divide the artichoke bottoms among 3 plates. Top each artichoke with equal portions scrambled egg, crispy pancetta and creamy lemon sauce. Garnish with oregano sprigs, if desired.
