Servings: 8
Prep time:
Cook time:
Total: 40 minutes


  • 1 ¼ cups fresh parsley leaves
  • ½ cup fresh cilantro leaves
  • 3 Tbs fresh oregano leaves
  • ¾ cup olive oil
  • 3 cloves garlic
  • 2 Tbs red wine vinegar
  • ¼ teaspoons kosher salt
  • ¼ teaspoon black pepper
  • 8 portobello mushrooms
  • 8 large eggs
  • 2 Tbs fresh queso cheese (optional)


  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
  2. Make Chimichurri sauce: Combine first eight ingredients into a food processor. Pulse until finely chopped and mixture resembles pesto. Set aside 30 minutes while roasting mushrooms or up to 24 hours.
  3. Clean portobello mushrooms; remove stems and scrape gills from underside. Place mushroom caps top down on a sheet pan lined with parchment paper.
  4. Spray with olive oil or nonstick spray and bake mushrooms at 400 for 25 minutes. (While mushrooms cook, boil water and poach eggs working in batches.) Remove mushrooms from oven and pat dry with paper towel to remove water.
  5. Remove mushroom to a plate, top with a poached egg, and a tablespoon of chimichurri sauce. Add fresh queso cheese as garnish, if using. Serve for breakfast, brunch or a light dinner.
