Artichoke-Scrambled Eggs Benedict Recipe at
Preheat oven to 425 degrees F.

Toss artichoke bottoms with 2 teaspoons oil and 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.

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

Heat the remaining 2 teaspoons oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. 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.

To serve, divide the artichoke bottoms among 4 plates. Top each artichoke with equal portions scrambled egg, crispy pancetta and creamy lemon sauce. Garnish with oregano sprigs, if desired.

Not even close to Eggs Benedict
I was intrigued by this recipe because I love artichokes. However, I would never replace the English Muffin part -- that gives a sturdy base vs. cooked artichokes. I use Thomas' Multi-Grain Light English Muffins and they are delicious! Use chopped artichoke hearts from the can (not marinated!). Also, Eggs Benedict uses Canadian bacon, not panchetta - waaay different taste b/c panchetta is not smoked. One last thing: eggs Benedict is always made with over easy eggs, not scrambled.
