This makes a hearty breakfast and/or a good side for a creamy pasta dish. It could be looked at as a retake of the Egg McMuffin. Low carb and full of vegetables. The egg yolk makes a yummy sauce that brings it all together. DDP1.

The flavors in the layers of this stuffed portabella are amazing. The beefy mushroom topped with Canadian bacon makes this recipe very hearty. Stuffed with wilted spinach, savory cheese, and Italian seasoning, the combination of flavors is heavenly. Our favorite part was the egg on top. We cooked ours to have a runny yolk that made an amazing sauce once broken into. If you like your eggs a little firmer, prepare them that way. It's up to you! Individually, these layers are good but together they are a yummy breakfast for brunch. This is something you'd find on the menu at a fancy brunch. The Test Kitchen
