Ingredients
Prep: 30 Minutes | Total Time: 30 Minutes
  • 1 1/2 cans
    artichoke bottoms, rinsed
  • 4 tablespoons
    extra-virgin olive oil, divided
  • 3 teaspoons
    chopped fresh oregano, divided, plus 4 sprigs for garnish
  • 1/3 cup
    chopped pancetta
  • 2 tablespoons
    reduced-fat mayonnaise
  • 2 tablespoons
    nonfat plain yogurt
  • 2 teaspoons
    lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon
    water
  • 6 large
    eggs
  • 4 large
    egg whites
  • 2 tablespoons
    reduced-fat cream cheese, Neufchâtel
  • 1/4 teaspoon
    salt
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 425°F.
  2. 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.
  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 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.
  5. 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.
