Mushroom Toast

Mushroom Toast
Thank you guys so much for all the well wishes, I actually do feel a lot better!
Maybe I really was onto something with the bourbon, maybe it was all that fucking Benadryl..
Whatever mojo is going on, it’s working.

But just to seal the deal, I made this fucking incredible pumpkin chowder over the weekend because the inevitable happened and I woke up to a 50F Sunday morning.
Actually it started off at about 38F.

I ran out to grab my tripod from my car and said, “Noooooope!”
Cold as shit.

I hate it when that happens.
Everything is all nice and beautiful, you even have to dab your brow throughout the day.
Then BAM.
38deg.

This is what you want?
Goosebumps and hard nipples.
This is what all the pictures of orange leaves are about?
This is your hero season?

*shaking my damn head*
Not cool.

So I wrapped myself up and do what I do most Sunday mornings…
Read you guys blog.

That’s right.
I stalk you.

One lady that particularly sealed that deal was Darya from Tortore.
I know I’ve been shouting out a lot of blogs lately but like I said, I stalk you.
Hey, at least I’m up front about it.

Lately, all signs have been pointing to mushrooms and for me to do something about them.
Darya’s latest post sealed the deal so thank you Darya for giving me that final kick in the ass.

Mushroom Toast.
Hands-off cooking at its finest.
Why do I always sell these recipes like they’re the best thing since sliced bread?
Hands off cooking at its finest would be cereal.
This isn’t cereal but it’s really tasty annnnd it involves bread so..
Yaaay for all the breadies out there.

You already know I’m not a huge breadie.
Yes that’s a word.
No you cannot look it up ok, c’mon.
Just take my word alright?

Alright, so like I said I’m not big into bread but just like my Watermelon Salad, every now and then, I indulge in delicious rarities.
Besides, Fall is the season of comfort food, I’ll give it that, so I guess it’s about to go down.

This recipe is super duper easy to follow and really is pretty fucking marvelous.
I actually cooked this and ate it while scrolling through more blogs.

I included my go-to spicy mayo as the base to hold the mushrooms on the toast and to give it a little  heat.

I will warn you though, since items are being cooked separately, go easy on the seasoning because you will combine the finished products and you don’t want to have overdone it.

My bread of choice was Boule because that shit is to die for.
Maybe next time I’m feeling indulgent I’ll bake my own bread.
Now that would be something.
Enjoy.

 

Mushroom Toast.

What I Used.

A bunch of Mushroom Varietals (Shitake, Portabella, White, Oyster, Chanterelle, Cremini). Bread (any kind). ½ cup Mayo. 2 tbsp Sriracha Sauce. 1 egg. Olive Oil. Salt. Pepper.

What I Did.

Preheat oven to 400F.
Roughly chop all the mushrooms.
how_to_roast_mushroomsPlace them in a foil lined baking tray.
Drizzle generously with olive oil.
roasted_mushroom_recipesLightly season with salt & pepper.
mushroom_recipes
Place in oven to roast, uncovered for 20 mins or until the mushroom ends start to curl.

Make the spicy mayo by mixing ½ cup mayo and the 2 tbsp Sriracha sauce in a small bowl.

Prior to serving, fry or poach an egg.
Spread the spicy mayo on the toast.
easy_mushroom_recipes how_to_cook_mushroomsAdd the egg to the center.
Crack some pepper over it and surround with the roasted mushrooms.

  1. I’m so close to drooling at my desk right now–what I love about it is that a couple of those and a nice salad would do as a light lunch or dinner or be the perfect breakfast as-is!

  2. Hahaha I forget how spoiled we are here in SoCal. During Fall it’s only like 70 degrees out. Your mushroom toast has me drooling. I am a breadie. and I love eggs. And mushrooms. Winnning!

  3. Hmmmmm….fungi…

    One of the highlights of a Swedish summer is a walk through the forest to pick Chanterelle mushrooms at those secret places known only to a few family members, and then going back to your cottage, brushing them clean, and then quickly sautéing them in a little butter….

  4. Oh wow, thanks heaps for the shout out, Dana! So sweet. The mushroom toast looks uh-mazing, but then when it comes to mushrooms, isn’t everything amazing? What really-really got me hooked in your recipe was actually the egg, I mean seriously, egg and mushroom, I am in heaven. No matter what the weather is like outside!

  5. I loooove mushroom toast. I could eat it every day! I’ve never had it with spicy mayo before though. I didn’t even realise that stuff existed. I must be living under a rock.

  6. I love mushrooms on toast too. The Koala is obsessed with meat for weekend breakfast but has a special pass for mushrooms on toast. Last weekend we just did white button mushrooms fried with butter and topped with a runny-yolked fried egg. Add a dollop of a tomato chutney and toast and you have yourself a fine, fine meal.

    I’ve never used spicy mayo before either. Sounds like it would be great friends with egg.

    I love the selection of mushrooms you have there. I buy 1 kind of mushroom 99% of the time. I need more mushroom varieties in my life.

  7. I ain’t never cooked mushies like that before Mrs Cake but you bet your sweet patootie I will be in the future. I hope you shook your metaphorical fist at autumn whilst you scoffed it all down.

  8. ‘This is what you want?
    Goosebumps and hard nipples.
    This is what all the pictures of orange leaves are about?
    This is your hero season?’
    Couldn’t agree more! 😉

  9. Baha. Goose bumps and hard nipples… my favourite time of year :).
    Didn’t realise you were sick but I would’ve defo sent a card or some shit. Hope you’re feeling better now…
    Those mushrooms on toast belong in my belly. They look damn fine indeed!

Go on, get it out..
