This is another breakfast egg post. Remember, I told you we don’t eat a lot of eggs reserving them for weekend breakfasts. Well, this is one of those weekend breakfasts and notice there are no chiles in this recipe. 🙂
We love to cook and try new and different things. Although we try to cook in moderation, sometimes it’s just not possible. The net result is we get a refrigerator/freezer full of leftovers. It happens to everyone. So, when it happens, you have to figure out what you’re going to do with the leftovers. Sometimes they are lunch, as is. Other times we make salads. Regardless of what you do, sometimes the best dishes are the ones that require a little innovation without being luxurious. But what do you do with a cup of bourbon sauce and no pork? We made breakfast and here’s what we did. 🙂
- 2 eggs
- 2 pieces sourdough toast
- 2 Tbsp butter, unsalted
- 1 portobello mushroom, cleaned, gills removed and sliced, 1/4 inch slices
- 1/2 white onion, sliced lengthwise, 1/4 inch slices
- 1 cup bourbon sauce
- salt and pepper to taste
Add butter to a skillet to melt. When melted, add the onions, salt and pepper and cook over medium-high heat for 3 minutes.
Add the mushroom slices and sauté for another 3 – 4 minutes until the mushrooms begin to turn a light brown.
Remove from heat. Fry eggs. If you prefer poached eggs then poach instead of fry. For this type of breakfast, we like fried eggs. 🙂
Place some of the onions and mushrooms on the toast.
Put the fried egg on top of the onions and mushrooms (Baby Lady likes her eggs over easy)
Spoon the bourbon sauce over the top

Looks great! This is my kind of breakfast.
Mmmm. Methinks it’s time for second-breakfast!
Thanks for dropping by and your nice compliment. Hope to see you around. 🙂
Nice one Richard. I too reserve the eggs for weekend breakfasting. Muesli the rest of the week.
Thanks, Conor. I love eggs but I prefer light breakfasts during the week. Now, with all the kids gone, I get to move a little slower on the weekends. 🙂
All these recipes involving liquor has me inspired to start playing with the different flavor possibilities in my liquor cabinet.
I love liquor in food. If you put it in sauces you get all sorts of flavor profiles and undertones. Liquors can take desserts to an entirely different level. If you put it in ice cream, it keeps the ice cream from becoming rock hard while providing a beautiful depth of flavor. Play away. 😉
This does look good, Richard, and what a great way to “get rid of” that bourbon sauce. I’m kinda hoping you’ve got a bit more. I’d like to see what you’d do with it. 🙂
Thanks, John. This post is proof positive that it is never too early for me to have bourbon. 😉
I’m going to make this ! I love mushrooms !
Thanks. I hope you like it. 🙂
Portobello & eggs my favorite breakfast! OMG, you haven’t lived if you haven’t tried it. Now I have a new variation to a favorite. Thanks again for another scrumptious recipe!!
You’re more than welcome. We’re glad you found the site. We’re pretty eclectic although we do use a lot of chiles. 😉
Well it’s just after breakfast time here and I wish I could channel my inner hobbit for secondsies (aka 2nd breakfasts!) The bourbon sauce is a revelation, namely with the eggs! I think I need to take a trip to the bottle shop before the weekend 🙂
