Insider Info

Mushroom may also be cooked in the oven. PREHEAT oven to 425°F. Place cleaned mushroom cap brushed with oil on baking sheet. BAKE 10 to 15 minutes or until tender.

To FRY an egg, spray small skillet with cooking spray OR add 1 teaspoon to 2 tablespoons butter or vegetable oil. HEAT skillet on medium-high heat. SLIP egg into pan and immediately reduce heat to low. COOK slowly until white is completely set and yolk begins to thicken. BASTE egg with butter OR turn over to cook both sides.

To POACH an egg, bring 2 to 3-inches of water to boiling in deep skillet or omelet pan. BREAK cold egg into a custard cup. SLIP egg into water. COOK until whites are completely set and yolk begins to thicken but is not hard, about 3 to 5 minutes. REMOVE carefully with a slotted spoon.

Substitute Cheddar cheese for the Parmesan.
A poached egg may be prepared instead of a fried egg to top the toast.
Garnish plate with parsley sprigs and a few grape tomatoes.
