Happy Black Friday or Happy Friday as it just learnt that they call it over in Norway, you learn something new everyday, right?
So since you are all probably spending ALL your silvers on other things than food, I thought of giving you a cheap, healthy and fantastically tasty recipe for a humble dish that is easy to forget about sometimes - Mushrooms on toast! Have you got some leftover mushrooms to spare? Mix them up if you have several kinds or just use plain white mushrooms like I did here - frying them until nice and golden releases all the flavours that they hold.
This toast topper is special enough to buy mushrooms for exclusively, I can tell you that much!
Humble Mushrooms on Toast
2 generous handfuls of mushrooms, sliced
1 tsp oil
1 tbsp light butter
Salt and pepper
Parsley (freshly chopped or dry)
Other herbs and spices (not necessary, I used some Nigella seeds)
2 slices of toasted bread to serve
- Start by heating the oil in a medium frying pan. Turn it up high, add your mushrooms and seasoning. The pan should be so hot that it literally sizzles from the moment the mushrooms touch the pan.
- Add butter and turn down a little once they start browning and toast until they are the way you like them.
Serve with toasted bread and a little extra butter to serve, and enjoy with a hot cuppa for breakfast, or as a comforting evening snack.
What is your favourite mushrooms, and do you have a mix that works well? I'd love to get some tips and ideas from you!
