Baked Eggs in a Portobello Cap


  • eggs
  • portobello mushroom caps
  • black pepper
  • fresh parsley or thyme
  • a little olive oil


  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. Arrange the caps on a baking sheet.

  3. Crack each egg into a small bowl and then carefully slide it onto a mushroom cap

  4. Sprinkle with black pepper and fresh herbs of choice.  Parsley and thyme are excellent choices.

  5. CAREFULLY place the baking pan into the pre-heated 375F 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
