Food Monday ~ Egg & Mushrooms

Egg & Mushroom

For each person:

vegetable oil for frying
Portobello mushroom, cleaned, stem removed and a small hole made in the centre
medium egg

Using a non stick pan add the oil, then add the mushroom gill-side down.  Cook briefly for a couple of minutes, then turn over and cook the other side for a minute or two, till lightly golden.  Crack an egg into the middle of the mushroom, cover with a lid or foil and cook for about 5-10 minutes, till eggs are cooked.  Serve on toast or on their own.

    Have any of you ever cooked with quail eggs? I just got a pair of Bob White Quail and am waiting for the 1st egg.

    Grannymar and Steph,

    This whole recipe reminds me of when I worked in a huge office and we called the Boss “THE MUSHROOM”.
    Why? Because we kept him in the dark and fed him a load of sh*t……

    Rhyleysgranny & Steph – I am not really that old…. creek groan OUCH! 🙁

    Baino – Easy and tasty, what more could you ask for??

    Kate – Enjoy!

    Maynard – Would you believe I have never seen, eaten or cooked a quail egg in my life.

    Nancy – The poor man! Did he last the course?

    No, he didn’t last long after he ate the funny Brownies we made for him.

    He went on a “Money Saving” kick once and we could not get a new pencil until we turned in the stub of the old one. Then he said that he thought the office people had a lot of supplies hidden in their desks.

    He put this notice up on the bulletin board:

    Grannymar can’t respond to you at the moment as she’s eaten too much hash with her magic mushrooms 😉

    Nancy – That Mr Wilkerson deserved those Brownies. 🙄

    Steph – That was a load of hash 😉 I was at dance practice and managed to stay on the table. 😆

    Things you’ll need to table dance like a real pro…

    leather attire
    happy hooker shoes
    lampshade with pompoms is optional
    lots and lots of liquor or beer or wine

    There was a young lady named Mabel
    One evening danced on the table
    She blushed very red
    When a gentleman said…
    Just look at the legs on the table


A penny for your thoughts...
