A simple and delicious way to transform fried eggs into a substantial one-dish brunch or snack dish. I read the basic idea for this recipe somewhere recently, then couldn't find it again, but I added to the original idea - which just had garlic sautéed in the oil before adding the eggs - when I made this for brunch yesterday. I used some wonderfully orange-yolked free range eggs which certainly added to the visual appeal! Everyone loved it, and I'll be making this again! The proportions used could, of course, easily be varied.
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- 1 tablespoon lemon juice
- 3 cups mushrooms, sliced
- 1 onion, chopped
- 2 -4 garlic cloves, chopped
- 4 -6 eggs
- salt, to taste
- fresh ground black pepper, to taste
- 1 tablespoon fresh basil, roughly chopped, for garnish
- Heat the oil and the lemon juice in a non-stick pan and sauté the mushrooms, onion and garlic until they are just beginning to soften.
- Add the eggs, season to taste and fry gently and, if desired, when they are beginning to set, carefully turn them over.
- Transfer the mushrooms, onion and garlic mixture and the eggs to a serving plate or to individual serving plates and sprinkle with the chopped basil.
This was great. I put in a little too much salt.
Liked it but I didn't care for the lemon taste, will make it again but will prbably use a lot less lemon or substitute it for something else. I also added some corn to it. All in all it was fairly yummy. Thanks for posting this recipe.
I enjoyed this recipe while DH didn't like the taste of lemon in the mushrooms. And usually he loves anything that has lemon. I served it with a toast. Thanks Bluemoon. Made for Best of 2008 cookbooks tag game
