02 Oct cheesy mushrooms on toast
My mushrooms and cheese on toast is a truly speedy supper. The Worcestershire sauce is the savoury cherry on top of this deliciously cozy supper.
Cheesy Mushrooms on Toast
Prep Time: 5 minutes
Cooking Time: 15 minutes
1 clove of garlic
1 tablespoon of butter
4 slices of bread, for toasting
4 handfuls of roughly grated cheddar
- Wash and slice the mushrooms. Finely slice the garlic.
- Heat the butter in a frying pan over a medium heat. Fry the mushrooms for 3 minutes before adding the slices of garlic, and a generous pinch of salt and pepper. Fry for a further five minutes or until the mushrooms are soft and cooked through.
- Lightly toast your bread and then put it on a baking tray. Divide the slices of fried mushrooms and garlic between the toast. Top with a handful of roughly grated cheddar. Sprinkle with Worcestshire sauce. Place under a hot grill and cook for 2 to 3 minutes, until the cheese is melted but the toast isn’t burnt.
- Serve with an extra crack of black pepper.
Storecupboard Essential: Worcestershire Sauce
Though I still struggle with the correct pronunciation of this sauce, it has always been an important member of my kitchen pantry. This quintessentially British condiment is a mix of barley malt vinegar, molasses, salt, anchovies and tamarind.
