Cheesy Mushroom Toast

I wouldn’t say I’m obsessed with avocado toast.  Trust me I’ve had it and you won’t hear me complaining. There’s something very comforting about toast…the ultimate carbohydrate as a vehicle for deliciousness.  And I always make toast with real butter.  Real, salted, butter.  Absolutely nothing wrong with that.  A crispy piece of bread slathered with salted butter and topped with something…anything you want!

So the other day I made some cheesy mushroom toast for breakfast.  Now I know mushrooms aren’t everyone’s thing, BUT I will say that when you cook them in butter with salt, pepper and a little bit of fresh thyme I am sure that may change your opinion of them.   It was quick, easy, and delicious.  And I added a handful of shredded gruyere cheese to the top for good measure.  Yum!

Start by sauteeing the mushrooms over medium heat in a pan with butter, salt, pepper and a little bit of fresh thyme.  I used cremini mushrooms (baby bella).  You could really use any kind of mushrooms.

Cook for about 7-8 minutes until the mushrooms are cooked and have absorbed the butter and seasonings.

Spoon on top of a piece of buttered toast.  Top with shredded gruyere immediately.  Serve and enjoy!
