  • Clean the mushrooms with a paper tissue and scrape out the gills with a spoon.

  • Place on a sheet pan and bake in an oven at 375 degrees F.

  • Mix breadcrumbs, garlic powder, scallions, capsicum, paneer, black pepper, oil and milk for filling.

  • Apply extra virgin olive oil over the top of each mushroom and rub it around. Flip over and place top-side down on sheet pan.

  • Fill the mushroom caps with the filling and create a hole in the center of each cap.

  • Cook for 10 minutes until the filling binds together and then remove from the oven.

  • Crack and put the egg smoothly in the nest. It’s okay if the white oozes a little off the side into the pan.

  • Bake for another 10-15 minutes or until the egg white is no longer translucent, but the egg whites and yoke are still a bit jiggly.

  • Serve hot and enjoy!
