Fried "Egg" Sandwich
You can have your bacon and eat it too with this great recipe. Whereas bacon raises your cholesterol and hardens your artieries with each bite, shiitakes have the opposite effect. They do this by preventing too much immune cell binding to the walls of our blood vessel lining. How cool is that? They are also high in iron, B vitamins, niacine, choline, folate and D2.
