    Instructions to prepare:

    1. Wash portobella mushrooms; pat dry with a paper towel.  Cut off stems and hollow out with a spoon.  Dry upside down on a paper towel.

    4. Add the olives, red peppers, basil, 1/2 T. olive oil and Italian seasoning to the rolled hot cereal.  Mix into the beef.
    5. Add the whipped egg and 1/4 cup of the parmesan cheese to the beef.  Mix thoroughly.
    6. On an oven-safe baking tray, spray it with some olive oil flavored non-stick spray and place each portobella mushroom on the tray.
    7. Spoon the beef mixture evenly into all four mushroom caps.
    8. Bake in a 400 degree oven for approximately 15-20 minutes.
    9. Remove mushrooms from oven and top each with a sprinkle of parmesan cheese.
    10. Serve with a side green salad.
