Four Portabello Mushrooms, remove stems and wipe clean
1/2 cup flour
2 eggs, beaten
1/4 cup milk or water
1 cup plain bread crumbs
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp pepper
Fresh basil leaves
Olive oil cooking spray
Fresh sliced tomato
Preheat oven in either cooking mode.
This recipe follows the classic technique of basic breading procedure.
Set up three separate bowls. One with the flour. One with the eggs combined with the milk (creating an egg wash), and the last one with the bread crumb.
Dredge the mushrooms, one at a time, in the flour then egg wash and finally in the crumbs.
When all are breaded, spray both sides with cooking spray and place onto a cookie or bake pan. Place in oven and bake until crisp, approximately 14 minutes. Remove pan and turn slices over, top with a slice of tomato and cheese*. Return to oven for 5 minutes to melt the cheese. remove from oven plate with basil on each slice and enjoy!
*A great option is to top with Stonewall Kitchens Spicy Corn Relish.
