I am not a fan of the mushroom I’m afraid, however, my family crew are devotees of this little FunGuy.  I picked up these massive mushrooms from out in The Hills so I thought I’d give these mushroom egg cups a crack (pun alert).

I reckon you could keep them super simple with just the egg and mushroom but I got fancy and popped in a dollop of garlic butter at the bottom of each cup and then crumbled goat’s cheese and freshly chopped herbs over the top (highly recommended).

As you can see from the picture, I overcooked the eggs but not to worry.  In fact, I reckon if you deliberately overcook the eggs and let them cool down you have a wonderful snack for lunch boxes or for in the fridge when you get peckish.

These would work great too if you are having a MamaBake swap and you had some eggs you wanted to get rid of!

 

Basic recipe

Ingredients

One or two big mushrooms per person
A knob of butter per mushroom
One egg per mushroom

Method

I pan fried  mine but I know you can bake them too.

  1. Remove the stalk of the mushroom and scrape out some of the little brown thingies in the mushroom.
  2. Pop the mushrooms top down in the frying pan in a little butter and heat gently for a couple of minutes.
  3. Break the eggs into each mushroom, cover with a lid and cook until the eggs are as you like them.

Serve on toast with avo or however you like.
