Mmmushroom Toast

imageWe LOVE mushrooms!  Today I’m sharing a ridiculously simple and delicious appetizer/snack that could be turned into a meal with the addition of a bowl of soup or a nice big salad.  You don’t even need a recipe; like most of what we post here at WLTS, this is both forgiving and customizable.

Just sautée some garlic (minced, crushed, or sliced) in plenty of butter on medium-medium high.  You can use oil instead, but I prefer the flavor of butter for this dish.  Once the garlic has started to cook, add your favorite kind of mushrooms, sliced, in a single layer if possible.  Season with salt and pepper to taste.  Let the mushrooms cook undisturbed until they start to caramelize (brown) before stirring and allowing them to brown on the other side.  Add a splash of cream and continue cooking until the cream reduces and thickens a bit.  Garnish with parsley and serve on toasted French bread.  Annnd, now I’m hungry!

If you skip the baguette, this would also make a great side dish or a tasty topping for a perfectly cooked steak, but I think one of the advantages of mushroom toast is that it it’s a hearty vegetarian option for a snack, appetizer, or meal.

This is such an easy, satisfying dish.  We hope you try it, because WE LOVE THIS STUFF!

PS if you don’t like mushrooms, we probably can’t be friends.  Just kidding, but why are you still reading this?! 😉
