Breakfast on the Porch or Deck or Patio

With the recent unseasonably warm spring days, I’ve abandoned anything indoors for the inviting fun of the outdoors. Even our meals have been enjoyed on our porch. Yes, even breakfast.

There is something about the chirping, whistling and endless views of the valley that just make eating that much more of an event.

And this morning was no different. The light fog only added a layer of mystery to our breakfast adventure. So much so that traditional fried eggs turn into a gourmet, chef inspired breakfast.

Mushroom Fried Egg on Toast

1 egg
1 slice of rye toast
1/2 cup of fresh, sliced mushrooms (I used baby bells)
1 T fresh chives, snipped to 1/2″ strips
1/4 cup of shredded Frisian Farms Young Cheese (or farmer cheese if unavailable)
Cooking spray
Garlic salt and pepper

Spray a medium fry pan with cooking spray and turn to medium heat. Add mushrooms and cook about 4 minutes until soft. Seasoning to taste with garlic salt and pepper. Remove from pan and set aside.

Toast your piece of rye bread, spread with butter if desired (I recommend it).

Next, spray your pan again and return it to medium heat. Crack and add your egg. Cook either sunnyside-up or over easy.

To assemble, place toast on a plate. Place egg on top of toast. Then, place mushrooms on egg, sprinkle cheese and chives over the mushrooms. Salt and pepper if desired.

Grab a fork in your favorite spot and enjoy!

    This sounds yummy if you like mushrooms and eggs. I don’t like either… sometimes I wish I did so I could eat things like this. Wonder what it would taste like with just toast, chives, and cheese 🙂

      Yes…an appreciation for eggs and mushrooms is needed. 😉 However, toast chives and cheese wouldn’t be a bad combo either.
