Italian Fried Egg and Portabella Burgers
Although this recipe calls for a portabello mushroom in place of an all-beef burger -- meatlovers, fear not! This burger packs a flavor punch with a cooked-to-perfection fried egg on-top.
Preheat oven to 450°F
Place rolls on a baking sheet. Brush with beaten egg and sprinkle with Parmesan cheese and Italian seasoning. Bake for 5 to 7 minutes or until lightly browned.
Season mushrooms with salt and pepper. Grill rounded side up over medium heat for 5 minutes. Turn and top with cheese and peppers or tomatoes and cook for 5 minutes more or until cheese is melted.
Cut rolls open and place equal amounts of arugula on roll bottoms. Top with mushrooms and fried eggs; sprinkle with basil and top with roll tops.
