  • 4 large tomatoes, cores trimmed and each sliced in half crosswise
  • Olive oil cooking spray
  • Sea salt and fresh ground black pepper, to taste
  • 3 egg yolks plus 8 eggs, divided
  • 1 cup plain whole-milk Greek yogurt
  • 2 tsp fresh lemon juice
  • 5 tsp organic unsalted butter, divided (Try: Horizon Organic Unsalted Butter)
  • 1/2 tsp mustard powder
  • 3 cups button or white mushrooms, halved
  • 3 cups loosely packed trimmed spinach leaves
  • 1 tbsp white vinegar
  • 2 tbsp chopped fresh chives


  1. Preheat oven to 400°F. In a baking dish, place tomatoes cut sides up. Mist with cooking spray and season with salt and pepper. Roast until tender and slightly shriveled, about 30 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, place a heat-proof bowl over a pot of simmering water; in bowl, whisk together egg yolks, yogurt and lemon juice. Cook, whisking often, for 5 to 8 minutes or until thick. (NOTE: mixture will appear thick at first, then will thin out and thicken again.) Remove bowl from heat and whisk in 4 tsp butter and mustard until smooth. Season with additional salt. Cover and set aside.
  3. In a large skillet on medium high, heat remaining 1 tsp butter. Add mushrooms and cook, stirring, until softened, 3 to 4 minutes. Add spinach and cook, stirring, until spinach is wilted, 1 to 2 minutes. Remove from heat, cover and set aside.
  4. Poach eggs: Fill a large, shallow saucepan with 3 inches water; bring to a boil. Add vinegar and reduce heat to medium-low to maintain a gentle simmer. In a small dish, break 1 egg and gently slip into simmering water. Repeat with remaining eggs and cook for 3 to 4 minutes, or until desired doneness. (NOTE: It may be easiest to do this in 2 batches of 4 eggs each.)
  5. Divide spinach-mushroom mixture among plates and nestle 2 baked tomato halves on top. Top each tomato with a poached egg, then spoon sauce over top and sprinkle with chives.
