Recipe : Baked portobello mushroom with cheese


Portobello mushroom is this huge, brown, flat mushroom. It is about the size of my palm. Rather costly as one piece is about RM1.50.

Since I was baking potatoes with cheese for my kids, I decided to bake two for myself.


Heat some olive oil and stir fry one yellow onion till soft. Use a bit more oil so that there is enough to oil the baking plate.


I lined the onion on the baking tray. Put in my mushrooms and the potatoes mixed with cream cheese. (the cheese are for my scrawny kids only). I had parboiled the potatoes to make it cook faster.

Sprinkle more mozarella cheese and parmesan.

Bake for 200 deg C for about 15 minutes.


I didn’t cut the mushroom, leaving them whole because mushroom tends to wilt during cooking. It is yummy, as can be seen from the photo.

The portobello has a nice woody and wild taste. It is also chewy, a perfect replacement for the meats I am missing. 🙂

    oooo, looks very good. I love portobellos and they are a great meat substitute.

    I’d opt for portobello mushrooms rather than meat anytime. Wonder how the name came about? Reminds me of Portobello Market in London.
