Parmesan Mushroom Baked Eggs make the perfect busy morning breakfast or brunch recipe that doesn’t taste at all like it was whipped up in a matter of minutes.

What I mean to say is, these Parmesan Mushroom Baked Eggs take less than five ingredients, five minutes to assemble and about 15 minutes to bake, but taste like you’ve worked tirelessly over them for hours.

And we all know that some mornings, we just need more than a pre-packaged breakfast to help us get through our day. Since these Parmesan Mushroom Baked Eggs are so quick to pull together and are packed with tons of flavor and nutrition with little effort, you’ll turn to them time and again.

The Portabella base is hearty enough to leave you full in this meatless variety, but you could also consider blending in some bacon, chorizo or sausage to make it even fancier for a weekend brunch.

I hope your family enjoys it as much as mine.
