I'm not a fan of mushrooms, and but I love the idea. Could substitute some fried shredded bacon or sausage meat and onions.

I don't know if you entered the "egg" contest but you should, these remind me of Easter Lillies.

Alas, I published this a day before the egg contest opened, so it is ineligible. I did, however, enter it into the finger food contest. Thanks again. :)

I can't eat eggs, but I just had to comment on how beautiful these are!!

These look awesome!
I'm thinking a small dollop of goat cheese or similar under the egg could be nice. Hmmm...

Thanks! The goat cheese would make a good addition I think. I'll have to add that in the mix next time.
