Baked Eggs in a Portabella Cap

Baked Eggs in a Portabella Cap (great for all phases)

Reminder the portion of eggs for a Phase 1-3 dieters is 2 whole eggs plus 2 egg whites.

So you could actually have two mushroom caps, with 1 egg plus 1 egg white in each cap.


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


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.

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.

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

Sprinkle with black pepper and fresh herbs of choice â I used parsley but thyme would be great as well.

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
