Portobello and Prosciutto Air-Fried Eggs

Portobello mushrooms are perfect vessels for eggs. When they are filled with prosciutto and Parmesan cheese, this quick and easy breakfast tastes restaurant-worthy.

Makes 2 servings


  • If you can only find large or extra-large portobello mushrooms, simply air-fry one mushroom at a time.
  • If desired, leave out the prosciutto to make this a vegetarian dish.


  • 2 medium portobello mushrooms, stems removed and dark gills scraped out
  • 2 tsp olive oil (10 mL)
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1⁄4 cup chopped prosciutto or deli ham (60 mL)
  • 2 tbsp freshly grated Parmesan cheese (30 mL)
  • Chopped fresh basil or parsley 


Preheat air fryer to 390°F (200°C)

1. Brush mushrooms with oil and season with salt and pepper. Place, cut side up and close together (but not touching), in air fryer basket. Crack 1 egg into each mushroom. Season with salt and pepper. Sprinkle evenly with prosciutto and cheese.
2. Air-fry for 10 to 14 minutes or until mushrooms are tender and egg whites and yolks are firm, not runny. Sprinkle with basil, if desired.

That looks like a wonderful dish for brunch or dinner. Love the presentation….and you can never go wrong with eggs any time of day. Portobello mushrooms are such a great variety to work with. I would have never thought to make this in the air fryer.

Can you believe I’m still only using my air-fryer for fries? I really should try some other stuff as well and since I love stuffed portobello mushrooms, this will be a great dish to try.

What an interesting concept to air fry eggs. I have had an air fryer for 1 year and not once used it you gave me inspiration with this lovely recipe!

Marisa Franca June 17, 2018 - 8:20 am

What a great looking dish. I would enjoy it for any meal of the day!! If an air fryer can accomplish that I’d love to have one. We try to watch our weight and that certainly would help to keep the fat out of the foods. Will have to try out your recipe.

What a great idea for a low carb breakfast! I love mushrooms, but never think about doing it as a breakfast food, except in an omelette. Adding this one to my make list

I’ve never seen an air fryer here but I must look for it. Been wondering about it since I saw it advertised somewhere. Love this presentation and those mushrooms sound incredible. The book sounds like a keeper.

I love stuffed mushrooms but haven’t had them in ages. Yours look fabulous and I love the air fried eggs as well. I’ve been looking into getting an air fryer…it is definitely something I would love to have in my kitchen.
