These crunchy mushroom toasties are tasty. I like to use brown bread with seeds not just because it is healthier, but also gives the toasties more flavour and texture.
Servings: 1 serving
Preparation Time: 5 minutes
Cooking Time: 15 minutes
- 2 slices of brown bread
- 3 button mushroom
- 1/4 white onion
- 1 string of fresh thyme or a pinch of dry thyme
- a pinch of black pepper
- 1 slice of cheddar cheese or 2 tbsp of grated cheddar cheese
- 1 tbsp grated parmesan cheese
- 1.5 tbsp of extra virgin olive oil
- about 15g of unsalted butter (cut into small cubes)
Cut off the crust of two slices of brown bread.
Clean and slice three button mushrooms. Do not wash the mushrooms or the toastie stuffing would be too watery. Brush it with a piece of clean cloth or a soft brush.
Peel and chop a quarter of a white onion.
Cut one slice of Cheddar cheese diagonally to get two triangular shaped of cheese.
Heat up 1.5 tbsp olive oil and a knob of butter (about 5g) in a pan, add chopped onion and stir for about 1 minute. Then add the sliced mushroom and stir for 1 more minute.
Pick the fresh thyme and put in the pan and stir.
Add a pinch of black pepper. Once the sliced mushrooms are slightly coloured, pour them in a bowl. Don’t overcook the mushroom or it would be too watery and lose the texture.
Turn on the toastie maker, put a small cube of butter on it. Brush the melted butter all over the inside of the toastie maker.
Lay one slice of bread on the toasties maker, put the cooked mushroom on top.
Then put the Parmesan and sliced Cheddar or grated Cheddar on the mushroom.
Cover it with another slice of bread. Close the toastie maker and let it cook for about 5 minutes.
Open the toastie maker and brush the toastie with more butter and close it again. Cook for another 3 minutes.
The golden brown and crispy toasty is ready to serve.
