Preheat oven to 350°F. For sauce, in a small saucepan, melt butter over medium heat. Stir in flour, 1/4 teaspoon salt and 1/8 teaspoon pepper. Stir in dried basil (if using). Add milk all at once. Cook and stir until thickened and bubbly; cook and stir for 1 minute more. Remove from heat. Stir in fresh basil (if using).
Lightly coat four 8- to 10-ounce round baking dishes or 6-ounce custard cups with cooking spray. Spoon about 2 tablespoons of the sauce into each prepared baking dish. Gently break an egg into the center of each dish; sprinkle with a pinch each salt and pepper. Spoon the remaining sauce over eggs.
Bake for 18 to 20 minutes or until eggs are set. Sprinkle with cheese. Let stand until cheese melts. If desired, serve sprinkled with additional fresh basil and with toasted bread.
