Baked Eggs in Portabella Ingredients
I aim to serve eggs on most mornings, because they are very nutritious. Pairing eggs with other vegetables give additional boost of nutrition. This baked eggs in Portabella is healthy and incredibly flavourful despite using only a few simple ingredients.
- Organic Eggs
- Portabella Mushrooms
- Seasonings: salt, pepper, garlic powder
- Healthy Cooking Fat: for paleo and whole 30 compliance, use ghee, avocado oil, coconut oil or animal fat, instead of butter; for keto compliance, you can use all of the above.
- Garnish (optional): green onion, or fresh herbs of your choice, such as parsley, chives, etc.
Time-Efficient Breakfast Tips
95% of time, our breakfasts are made from scratch, to start the day for my family with good nutrition! But often we are eating the same few staples in a rotation. I do rely on my rice cooker and Instant Pot a lot for congee I program to cook the night before, such as the millet porridge and the black rice and red bean congee.
Anything I make in the morning need to be super time efficient. As I try out new recipes, I really think the baked eggs in portabella caps are the perfect solution, because there isn’t a lot of chopping and prepping work for this recipe. While the portabella eggs are baking in the oven, I can do other things such as cutting up some fruits, prepping lunch and snacks for my kids, etc.

If you wanted to do one mushroom would the amount of time still be the same?
Yes, the time will still be the same no matter how many mushrooms you are cooking.
