Scaled back for one serve but in making the sauce I cooked my butter a little too much so the sauce was not as white as it should have been and I also for dietary reasons served them on a bed of spinach and served some grilled cherry tomatoes on the side for a wonderful breakfast for lunch mean. Thank you ellie made for For Your Consideration tag game at FF&F.

These eggs were well enjoyed for breakfast for dinner menu at my house. I really love this concept of the open face sandwich over an English muffin. I added some onion powder, a touch of white wine, and extra cheese to the cheese sauce to pump up the flavor and I also poached the eggs in chicken stock because that's how we usually enjoy them. Thank you ellie for sharing. Made it for Billboard tag.
