Many of us are on a constant quest to find healthier recipes that won’t require us to give up meat. After making this recipe I finally understand why vegetarians say that portobello mushrooms can actually be a good replacement for your favorite meat. When baked, these gigantic earthy cups gain a lot of flavor and pair beautifully with eggs and parsley. Meat lovers will never go back after trying this.

    Crack your eggs into the mushrooms.

    #SpoonTip: Try to use cold eggs, as the whites will be more set and won’t run all over your baking sheet.

    Add salt, pepper, garlic powder and crumbled feta on top. Bake at 400°F for 12 mins if you like your eggs just cooked, or for 15 mins if you like them fully set.
