Meal Idea: Ditch the Bagel for Portobello Mushroom

If you’re looking for a lower carbohydrate option for breakfast instead of a bagel, remember you can always use portobello mushroom. Even though it is lower in carbs, it is quite hearty and can leave you feeling satisfied.

One of my favorite ways to enjoy it is simply grilling or roasting it in the oven and then stuffing it! For breakfast, I stuffed it with scrambled eggs, Greek yogurt cream sauce, and smoked salmon. This meal is hi-energy, loaded with omega-3 fatty acids, so you’ll have the energy to conquer daily tasks.

For this simple breakfast recipe, you only need a few ingredients. These are eggs, portobello mushroom, smoked salmon, mixed greens, and Greek yogurt or homemade Greek yogurt sauce.

I love making this sauce, it’s refreshing and goes well with dishes like this. To make it, you need goat cheese, cucumber, and Greek yogurt. Simply combine ingredients and mix gently. Add dill and a little salt and pepper to taste.

Portobello mushrooms can be grilled or baked in the oven. Be sure to scrape out the inside first. Gently remove using a spoon. Grill the mushroom at 350F, no more than 15 minutes. Add scrambled eggs, smoked salmon, Greek yogurt sauce, and garnish with mixed greens.

You can also make this meal for dinner as well. If you don’t like to eat eggs for dinner, replace them with chicken for dinner, and the Greek yogurt sauce will also go well with it. Easy dinner, ready in 15 minutes and low in carbs. I don’t think you can go wrong with this!

For this breakfast idea:

  • portobello mushroom cap
  • eggs & egg whites
  • smoked salmon
  • Greek yogurt sauce (yogurt mixed with goat cheese, blended cucumber, dill, sea salt & pepper)
  • mixed greens

Notes: Remember to scrape out the inside of the mushroom cap prior to grilling. Use a spoon and simply (and carefully) carve out the black portion of the mushroom cap.  Spray it with a little olive oil and season with sea salt, then toss it on the grill (or place in the oven).  Grill the portobello for no more than 15 minutes at 350F.
