Baked Mushroom And Eggs

Quick, healthy & TASTY recipes for busy veterinary professionals

Looking for a super fast meal that you can eat for breakfast lunch or dinner but...

You don't think you can cook?

You don't think you have time to cook?

With this recipe there's absolutely no excuse - and I've got some super easy photos to follow.

I don't know where I first saw this recipe so I can't give you a link, but I've added a few of my own touches anyway,

You can just make the baked egg in the mushroom but as I often have this for lunch I like to add a few extras.

So here it is...the recipe for ...

Baked egg and mushroom.

Ingredients (per person)

1 x egg

1 x large field mushroom

Small handful of baked sweet potato/potato or whatever you have left over (optional)

Large handful of salad greens, spinach, etc. (optional)

Crumbled fetta cheese - I like the smooth, creamy danish variety for this meal (optional)

Salt & pepper

NOTE: This can be baked in the oven, but because it seems like a waste to heat up the oven for one person I 'bake' it in a frying pan with a close fitting lid. If you had a mini oven that would be perfect. I haven't tried cooking this in a microwave becasue I don't have one!


Step 1

Heat up the oven to 180c or heat up the frying pan. Remove the centre stalk from the mushroom

Step 2

Lightly oil the frying pan or the oven proof dish and place the mushroom in the centre.

Carefully crack the egg and slide it into the mushroom.


Step 3

Oven baking: Place mushroom and egg into the oven and cook until the egg is how you like it

Frying Pan: Place lid over pan and cook on a medium heat until the egg is how you like it. I prefer mine quite firm so that's around 7 minutes.

Optional: place leftover roast sweet potato, etc in the pan for the last couple of minutes, turning regularly, to heat up.

Step 4

Place salad mix, spinach, etc. on a plate and gently add baked mushroom and egg on top. Add heated sweet potato, potato, etc. and then sprinkle with fetta cheese. Season with salt and pepper.

And enjoy!
