My husband and I have been wanting some lighter breakfast fare which doesn’t include meats, sausages or bacon as either a side or a component in the dish. To satisfy this, I used a portobello mushroom as my base. Keeping with the theme for the recipe, I added wilted spinach and a small amount of goat cheese just before topping each mushroom with an egg and baking it in the oven.

- 8 oz spinach , wilted
- 3 tablespoons olive oil
- 4 large eggs
- 2 oz goat cheese or chevre , optional

- Now place them back into your 350°F oven and bake for 15 to 17 minutes depending on how well done or sunny-side-up you like your eggs. Serve immediately.
