Grilled Egg Stuffed Portobello Mushrooms

Let’s talk about summertime for just a minute and all the food related celebrations that happen during that time. Typically here in the U.S. we’re talking about Fourth of July cookouts with lots of meat, backyard bbq’s with more meat, and family reunions and gatherings of friends with more, you guessed it, meat! What’s a health conscious eater to do? Well, if you are a vegetarian or just prefer to eat less meat, have I got a recipe for you! This grilled mushroom and egg (yes egg!) cook will be a go-to for you when you’re hanging in the yard with your buds but don’t want to keep eating more hamburgers and hot dogs.

The “base” of this dish is a big, hearty portobello mushroom. When choosing your mushrooms to grill, make sure you choose ones that have a tall edges and have a nice “bowl” shape to them for holding the egg in. Mushrooms are actually fascinating because even though they are considered vegetables by most people, they truly fall into the fungi kingdom. Mushrooms still contain a great deal of nutrition though, with fiber, potassium, and vitamin C for heart health. Mushrooms also contain selenium, which is a mineral not found in most other fruits and vegetables, that has been shown to prevent inflammation and decrease tumor growth. Here are some fun mushroom facts for you before we get off the topic: mushrooms are 85%-95% water, they have their own immune system (what the what?!), and they are more closely related in DNA to humans than plants! Now that I’ve fully creeped you out about mushrooms, let’s move on to the rest of this recipe!

I’m going to guess that you’ve never seen a recipe that calls for grilling an egg, am I right. Well, now you have, because today we are using my favorite Vital Farm eggs and grilling them up outdoors on the grill! I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, Vital Farms eggs are the top for quality and nutrition. Since their hens are pasture raised, they are allowed to roam and eat like hens in nature would. Pasture raised eggs are a win-win situation because the hens live a better quality of life and we get more nutrition and better tasting eggs!

In addition to the mushrooms and eggs, I’ve used lots of flavorful ingredients like feta cheese, tomato, garlic, and lime juice to really pack a punch in the taste department. You know I like my recipes full of flavor! You will fall in love with the tasty Italian inspired salsa I’ve made to top our mushrooms and it’s so versatile, you could use it to flavor and top many other dishes as well. Get creative with your food!

This recipe is actually fairly quick and super delicious so I know it will soon become one of your favorite grilling options for summertime cookouts! Not only that, cancer hates it and it’s getting more vegetables into your body which is one of our big goals here at Go2Kitchens! Vegetables and eating healthy doesn’t have to be hard or taste bad! In fact, there are so many more great options and flavors in the vegetable world than there ever could be when eating meat and dairy. I urge you to give this a try as an alternative to grilling meat this summer!


Ingredients

Preheat oven to 425°. Lightly coat a 7-by 11-in. pan with extra-virgin olive oil. Add mushrooms, brush all over with extra-virgin olive oil, sprinkle with salt and pepper, and bake hollow side up until browned and tender, about 10 minutes.

Pour off any accumulated juices from mushrooms, then sprinkle with Parmesan cheese.

Crack 1 egg into each mushroom and bake until eggs have set and yolks are still runny, 10 to 15 minutes.

Lightly brush olive oil over mushrooms and eggs. Season with salt and pepper to taste, along with lemon zest and parsley.


The Best Scrambled Eggs in Portobello Mushrooms


When it comes to eggs, I’ve always been relatively high maintenance. As a young child eggs were strictly off limits (something about the texture) but after discovering the amazingness of an ooey gooey runny yolk, my world changed. I could put an egg on absolutely anything as long as there is that luscious stream of yolk running down the side.


I first discovered this method of scrambling eggs during an incredible truffle hunting experience in Tuscany. We spent the morning walking through acres of forest with a local truffle hunter and his dog Pepe, it was amazing watching the dog smell the truffles from up to 75m away and take off through the forest to find the exact spot where he would begin to frantically dig. After collecting over 10 white truffles we then headed to a local house where we were taught how to prepare an amazing 4 course meal, with each dish featuring the truffles we had collected. Every dish was incredibly simple to prepare but elevated to a level of gourmet found in only the fanciest restaurants in London by the addition of shaved truffles. One of my favourite dishes was a very simple scrambled egg, prepared in a small ramekin over a burner on the stove. The egg was separated and the white was scrambled first in a splash of olive oil and then the yolk added a few moments later and quickly heated until just set. Although the eggs were served with shavings of white truffle, it was gently breaking into the egg yolk and watching it run down and over the scrambled whites that got me really excited.

In this recipe I swapped the ramekins for portobello mushrooms which add some substance to the dish and remove the need for bread. Egg whites are relatively flavourless so I added chopped spinach, but you could also add sautéed onions, diced tomatoes or ham. This whole dish should come together in under 20 minutes and you can cut the time in half by cooking the mushrooms up to 2 days in advance.

Grilled Portobello Mushroom Caps
©2003, The Naked Whiz

This was inspired by Rachel Ray's 30 Minute Meals and DrBBQ's recipe.

  • 4 large portobello mushroom caps, about 5 inches in diameter
  • Italian dressing
  • 4 slices provolone or mozarella cheese, large enough to cover the mushrooms
  • 1 10-oz can of Ro-Tel Mexican Festival Diced Tomatoes with Lime Juice and Cilantro, drained
Get your grill up to about 550 to 600 degrees, dome temperature. Place the grid at normal cooking level if you have a Big Green Egg.

Remove the stalk carefully so as not to damage the mushroom cap or the gills. Place the caps in a large zip top bag, pour in enough Italian dressing to allow you to completely cover the caps when you seal up the bag, and then turn it over and over to coat the mushrooms. Let them marinate for 15 minutes.

Place the mushroom caps on the hot grid, gill side down. (This is the underside of the cap, so place them on the grill the same way they grow out of the ground, gills down, rounded cap up.) Grill for 1 minute.

Remove the mushroom caps to a platter, gill side up. Spoon enough of the tomatoes onto each cap to loosely cover the gills, about 1 heaping tablespoon. Place a slice of cheese over the tomatoes. Return the caps to the grill, cheese side up. Close the cooker's lid and let the temperature drop to 400-500 degrees. Cook for about 2 minutes or until the cheese is nicely melted. Remove to a platter with a spatula and serve.
