Egg & Portobello Mushroom Burger

My sister introduced me to portobello mushroom caps and although I was a little suspicious at first, I was very pleasantly surprised after I made these egg burgers. The consistency is similar to meat so it’s a great substitution for beef or you can add it to your favorite burger. This was my first time making them but a quick Pinterest search gave me dozens of suggestions. Most people grill the portobellos but we baked them with an egg in the oven. This is such an easy and filling meal fit for everyone whether you’re a vegetarian, trying to lose weight or simply want to make something new for dinner!
