Eggs on Toast with Creamy Spinach Sauce

One downfall of being preggers is that I can't have raw egg...and let me tell you - all I crave for bfast these days is over easy eggs!!!!!  So I went on a hunt for a breakfast sandwich that I can eat...and found this - just made my eggs over hard!  This was good, but didn't really hit the spot...I'll have to make it again once Baby S is here, and see if it tastes better....I think I was just pouting cause I couldn't have an over easy egg :)
OBB Cookbook: Serves 2

½ teaspoon extra virgin olive oil (plus cooking spray as needed)
1 cup sliced brown mushrooms
2 cups loosely packed spinach, chopped
1 ounce low fat or fat free cream cheese
2-4 tablespoon skim milk
1/8 teaspoon garlic powder
⅛ teaspoon onion powder
1/8 teaspoon dried oregano
1/8 teaspoon kosher salt (more as needed)
2-3 cracks cracks pepper (more as needed)
2 eggs
2 slices whole grain bread
1 tomato, sliced
optional: 2 tablespoons low-fat crumbled Feta Cheese, parsley

Heat a medium skillet to medium-high heat.  Add olive oil and mushrooms and cook 3-5 minutes, until golden brown.  If needed, add cooking spray during cooking process.  While mushrooms are cooking, place cream cheese in a small, microwave-safe bowl.  Warm in 20 second intervals until melted and can be stirred smooth.  Add, garlic, onion, oregano, salt and pepper.  Add milk a little at a time and whisk until smooth, heating more if necessary until you have a nice sauce consistency.

When mushrooms are done, add chopped spinach to pan with mushrooms and stir just until wilted; it should just take a few seconds.  Add cream cheese mixture and stir until combined and heated through.  Remove mixture from pan and keep covered in a bowl.  Wipe pan clean and heat to medium-high heat.  Spray pan with cooking spray and crack 2 eggs into pan.  Sprinkle eggs with salt and pepper and cook until desired doneness.  (You can cook your eggs sunny-side up, or over easy, or poach them.)

Toast bread in toaster and top each with a couple of tomato slices (if desired, you can quickly warm tomatoes in hot pan).  Spoon spinach mixture over each serving and top with egg.  Sprinkle with feta and parsley if desired.
