Breakfast Stuffed Mushrooms

These breakfast stuffed mushrooms are packed full of scrambled eggs, breakfast sausage, basil, chives and a sprinkling of cheese. 

I have totally complained about this before but breakfast is the hardest meal for me to eat. The very thought of getting up and doing so much activity right away is just too much for me process.

Honestly, it’s probably a good thing I’m not a parent. I’m so selfish about my time in the morning my poor child would live off dry cereal and milk from the carton. Even as a nanny I never worked for a family where I had to make breakfast or have super early morning hours. I guess I was pretty spoiled in that regard. 

Well, wait. I did once work for this one family where the mom was so super high maintenance she was basically a child herself. I would have to wake her up every morning {annoying} and then start her coffee {really annoying} then she would yell down the stairs her breakfast order {really really annoying!} She would also come home from work early to go sit by the pool. Then call me from her cell phone and ask me to bring her a bottle of wine and some snacks. Seriously people. If you think a nanny is around for making you breakfast and picking out your wine, you’re wrong.

However, the one good thing that came out of that job was a serious love for breakfast sausage. I used to always be a bacon lover but then slowly sausage made its way to the top of my love list. See, miss fancy pants boss always requested sausage with her breakfast platter. Soooooooo I made A LOT of sausage for her and her kids. Which of course meant I ate a lot sausage.

So when I started working for Jones Dairy Farm I was over the moon that I get to make as many bacon and sausage laden goodies as I want. These stuffed mushroom caps are the perfect way to start your day and are packed full of delicious sausage, fresh herbs and sharp cheddar cheese.

Trust me. You will want to start your day off with these beauties.

Breakfast Stuffed Mushrooms

These breakfast stuffed portobello mushrooms are packed full of scrambled eggs, breakfast sausage, basil, chives and a sprinkling of cheese.

Yield: 4 servings

Prep Time: 10 minutes

Cook Time: 20 minutes

Total Time: 30 minutes

Ingredients:

  • 4 large portobello mushroom caps
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 (7 ounce) box Jones Dairy Farm mild sausage patties
  • 4 large eggs, scrambled
  • 1/4 cup diced basil
  • 2 tablespoons diced chives
  • Kosher salt and pepper, to taste
  • 1/2 cup shredded sharp cheddar cheese

Directions:

Preheat oven to 400 degrees and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

Remove stem and gills from the underside of the mushroom. Make sure there is enough space to fill them up with eggs.

Rub the inside of the mushroom with a little bit of olive oil and roast in the oven for about 5-7 minutes. Just let the mushroom soften slightly. They still need to keep their shape.

While the mushrooms are cooking start browning the sausage and breaking up the patties with your spatula. Once the sausage is browned stir in eggs, basil and chives.

Stir together as you cook so the eggs and ingredients all scramble together.

Once the eggs are fully cooked add it into the mushroom caps. Pile it one high since you are serving one cap per person.

Sprinkle each cap with 2 tablespoons shredded cheese and add back to oven for 5 minutes to help melt the cheese.

Serve immediately.
