Ingredients For mushrooms & eggs

    butter or extra light olive oil

How To Make mushrooms & eggs

  • 1
    For this dish, you will need a pan with a lid, and a glass lid would be ideal so you can keep an eye on the eggs.
  • 2
    Heat a non stick pan on medium heat and melt the butter, then add the mushrooms, onion, garlic, and thyme.
  • 3
    Saute to soften the mushrooms and release any water and soften the onion, season with salt and pepper as desired. Saute until most of the water is evaporated.
  • 4
    Sprinkle the cheese evenly over the mushrooms, crack the eggs on top, season with salt and pepper as desired. If all the water has cooked off, simply add a tablespoon or two of water on the side. (I did not use cheese, this time.)
  • 5
    Cover with the lid to poach the eggs, whites are set and the yolks are runny or to your liking.
  • 6
    Season with more pepper if desired.

    Serve with toast, enjoy.
