    Saw this recipe on a cooking show and just had to try it. We revised it a little bit to suit us.

    Portabella Bacon Bomb
    3 strips of bacon
    Portabella mushroom cap, stem removed
    1 egg

    Lay the strips of bacon out, crossing each other to look like wagon wheel spokes. Lay mushroom cap, bottom side up, in the center of bacon. Crack egg into the bottom of mushroom, wrap the bacon up and around the mushroom cap so that it is covered by the bacon. Cook in a pie iron. You may not be able to fully close the pie iron until the mushroom cooks down a bit. The egg might squish out a little too, but it doesn't really matter in the end. So good!

    The original recipe had a tomato slice on top of the egg before you wrapped the bacon up around it, and it was cooked in a dutch oven. We took out the tomato slice and decided to use a pie iron instead to make sure the bacon was crispy.

    Sounds wonderful! I think I'll include the tomato and maybe add some cheese. I'm thinking asiago or a nice swiss. Yum!
