March 24th, 2012 · 4 Comments · Appetizer, Dinner, Easy, Healthy, Potato, Side

It’s time for another portobello recipe! This one is real easy and a great healthy platform for all those wonderful things you put on a loaded baked potato (which may not be so healthy!).

Hey folks! If you feel like indulging in an amazing, sweet, delicious and caloric breakfast this recipe is for you!
