There are a couple of things in this world that I would go crazy without, or better yet, my stomach would. And that my friends would be portabellas, or mushrooms in general. Ask my friends. Whenever we hit up a burger joint and there's a shroom burger, it's a must order for me. So if you're sucker for shrooms like I am then we're mad cool! If not, then would me telling you that they're also low in calories *wink* *wink* make it a little more convincing for you guys to eat them?
Anywho, the grocery store in my area recently had a huge sale for these mega size portabella caps so you guys could already guess from my mentioning earlier that I grabbed myself a few suckers to last my appetite for the next couple of days.
This is also, surprisingly, my first attempt at trying Baked Portabellas with Eggs, after many long devoted hours spent browsing Pinterest. No regrets because I have no idea what I was thinking not ever having had tried such a quick, simple, and satisfying recipe. Feel free to continue reading if you're interested in whipping some up for yourself.
