  • 2 Whole Eggs
  • 1 Good size Portobello Mushroom

Sunny Side Up Portobellos Directions

  1. Clean the Portobello mushroom caps with a damp cloth, remove the stem and scrape out the gills so you have a well deep enough for the egg.
  2. Rub a little bit of olive oil on the outside of the mushroom to help it cook and keep it from sticking to the pan.
  3. Arrange the caps on a baking sheet.
  4. Crack each egg into a small bowl and then carefully slide it onto a mushroom cap.
  5. Sprinkle with black pepper and fresh herbs of choice, I used parsley but thyme would be great as well.
  6. CAREFULLY place the baking pan into the pre-heated 375 degree F oven and bake for 20-30 minutes. The amount of time required depends on how thick your mushrooms are and how done you like your eggs.
