    Hopefully someone answers this asap as i'm starving! ;)

    I have some large mushrooms and was going to crack an egg into them and pop them in the oven, do I part cook the mushrooms first or I do I just pop everything in together, I don't want the eggs cooked and the mushrooms only half cooked :yuk: gonna have them with toast & beans :)

    Thanks :)

    Ahhhh I completely messed up, tried to bake them a bit first and when I cracked the eggs into them they went everywhere so had to throw it all out, 2nd time around I didn't bake them first just put everything in together and half way through cooking the eggs came out of the mushrooms so so far today i've wasted 4 portobello mushrooms and 4 eggs!!! Have a feeling its gonna be one of those days!!

    what i do with this is: i scrape out the black bit inside the mushroom to make it a bit deeper and dont peel them that way they stay a bit more firmer
    im haveing large mushrooms in the morning but am filling them with philly light and cooked bacon or ham then put in the oven for about 20 mins

    I put tomato puree on them and put all toppings that I would put on a pizza. It's yummy :)

    Wow what a coincidence lol! I was gonna post the exact same question earlier as I needed a quick tea. Got lovely field mushrooms but didn't know what to do with them. Thought about cracking the egg in them, but ended up chopping them and cooking with peppers. I had them with dry fried eggs and beans on toast. Def gonna try the cheese and bacon filling and pizza ideas. I wonder how quark and garlic with bacon would do? Let the experimenting begin :)

    Pete’s Greek Cheese on a Portobello Mushroom

    Serves 2
    4 Portobello Mushrooms, skinned (s)(sff)
    1 Garlic bulb (s)(sff)
    100g Greek Salad Cheese 9 syns/2=4.5 syns each
    Fresh or dried chives


    Cut the top off a garlic bulb, spray with Fry Light and place in an oven-proof dish, cook for 20 mins at 180c. Remove and separate the garlic cloves.
    On a wooden cutting board crush the cloves with a large knife used sideways, add salt, chives, spray with Fry Light and chop into a paste.
    Spray two oven-proof dishes sprayed with Fry Light, add the skinned and de-cored mushrooms and a ¼ of the paste to each one, add the Greek cheese, crumbled and a second layer of chives, spray again and cook for 20 mins at 180c. When the cheese has browned, removed and serve on a bed of salad.

    i was once told to cook them until the water has all gone, and also dont wash them first as they soak up the water
