Ingredients

  • 4 portabello mushroom caps
  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 1 large tomato sliced in 1/4-inch slices
  • 2 whole-grain English muffins toasted

CHEESE MIX:

  • 4 oz shredded sharp cheddar cheese
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tsp dijon mustard
  • 1/4 tsp Worcestershire sauce

Instructions

  • In a medium bowl, beat the eggs. Whisk in the mustard and Worcestershire sauce. Stir in the cheese and set aside.
  • Lay the toasted English muffin halves on a baking sheet.
  • Melt butter over medium heat in a large skillet. Place mushrooms in the pan cap side down. Swirl each mushroom cap so they are nicely coated with the butter. Saute on each side about 1 minute, or until the juice just begins to run out of the mushrooms; remove from pan and place a mushroom cap in each toasted muffin half.
  • In the same pan, fry the tomato slices on each side, just until they are hot. Place a slice of tomato on each mushroom cap.
  • Set broiler to high heat.
  • Divide the cheese mixture equally over each mushroom. Place in the broiler and cook for about 5 minutes or until the cheese is melted and bubbly and just begins to brown.
