Tired of ordinary egg recipes? Check out this Baked Egg Mushrooms dish, featuring the much-loved portobello mushroom. At SkinnyMs., we absolutely adore portobello mushrooms for their meaty texture and their light and healthy nutritional profile. When mushrooms team up with eggs, the two superfoods make a powerful pair in the flavor department.
This oh-so-simple recipe calls for a mere five ingredients, four of which you probably already have in your kitchen. Just crack an egg into each mushroom cap, sprinkle some salt and pepper, and pop in the oven. After about 10 minutes, you have yourself a scrumptious egg dish. Tender, protein-packed eggs pair beautifully with the juicy texture of the mushrooms.
