Eggs with Herbed Mushrooms

This one pan recipe is the definition of quick, easy and delicious. You literally cook up everything in a frying pan and add the eggs. It really is that simple. What's even better is that you're likely to have all the ingredients at home already so it's ideal for those nights when you arrive home late from work and want to prepare something quick and nutritious that the whole family can enjoy together.
