Baked Portobello Parmesan

What an awesome meal. Let me start by saying even if you're not the biggest fan of mushrooms, you will still probably like this! One of Will's friends was here and stayed for dinner. He usually stays away from mushrooms, but thought these were super good! You bread the mushroom caps (no frying!) and they get so crispy and amazing. 

1/4 c Italian-style bread crumbs
1/4 c Panko
1 c  freshly grated Parmesan cheese, divided use
1 tsp sweet paprika
1/4 c fresh minced parsley, divided use

2 tsp salt, divided use
3/4 c egg substitute
1/2 tsp black pepper
1 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp oregano leaves
4 large (5 to 6-inches wide) stemmed portobello mushrooms, brushed clean (mine were slightly smaller so I made six)
1-1/2 c shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese
1/2 c marinara sauce
cooking spray

Position a baking rack in upper third of oven. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil. Place a wire cooling rack on top of the baking sheet. Mist rack with cooking spray. Set aside.

Combine bread crumbs, Panko, 1/2 cup Parmesan cheese, 3 tbsp parsley, paprika and 1 tsp salt in a shallow pan. Mix well. Set aside.

In a separate bowl, combine egg substitute, remaining 1 tsp salt. pepper, garlic powder and oregano. Mix well.

Dip both sides of mushrooms into egg mixture. Dredge in crumb mixture until both sides are completely coated. Transfer, stem side down, to prepared wire rack. Spray tops with cooking spray and bake for 15 to 20 minutes, or until mushrooms are tender and the tops have browned a bit. Remove pan from oven.

Carefully turn mushrooms stem side up. Cover each mushroom with remaining Parmesan cheese, mozzarella cheese, and marinara sauce. Spray tops lightly. Return to oven and bake until cheese melts and mushrooms are warmed through, about 10 minutes. I broiled for a minute or so. Use a wide spatula to transfer mushrooms to a serving platter. Sprinkle with parsley and enjoy!

Original recipe found here.

We had these with roasted broccoli and these zucchini rolls. I didn't have a recipe for these, but I had seen a picture of something similar. I used a mandolin to slice the zucchini thin lengthwise. I broiled the zucchini for about 3 min per side, then I put them on paper towels and tried to soak up as much water as possible. I spread a little laughing cow cheese, rolled them up, secured with toothpicks, then heated up. I just put them in the 350 degree oven for about 7-10 min. DELICIOUS.
