Welcome friends, and happy hump day. The post for today might be one of the most delicious things we’ve shared in awhile, at least in my opinion. It’s not very often I have a good excuse to eat mushrooms, so when Sammy ask if we should do this Cheesy Mushroom Toast for the blog, I quickly seized the opportunity. In case you are wondering, the reason I don’t get to eat mushrooms often, is my husband thinks they are the devil or something? One of the few things we disagree on of course. And another fun fact, Sammy is our recipe organizer/developer and correct me if I am wrong, but she does a fabulous job.
She found this recipe (no surprise) in the “Joy of Cooking” Cookbook, and for the first time in awhile she found a recipe that didn’t need changing. We thought about how we could change it up, but why fix something that isn’t broken right? If you’re new to the blog and curious about what we’re doing, be sure to head over to our Journey into the Joy of Cooking blog post for more details.
Honestly, I’d eat this Cheesy Mushroom Toast anytime of day, but it’s really meant to be an appetizer or maybe snack for lunch or brunch. And the steps to make these tasty morsels as easy as can be. I mean, slicing the mushrooms are probably what will take you the longest which is saying something. You’ll then saute them, add and melt the gruyere cheese, and then add an egg. This mixture is gold! Add it to some toast, bake it in the oven, and serve them hot. So much yum you guys.
What surprised me the most, was the leftovers. I bagged these up for the night, wanted one the next day, and stuck them right back in the oven for a second round. I always feel like a winner when a favorite recipe yields leftovers. And even more of a winner when there better the next day. Not sure these fit that category, but they we’re just as good as the first day.
All and all, we are falling more in love with this old fashioned encyclopedia of a cookbook the more we cook through it. And we’re not even close to being done. Stay tuned for a super interesting version of baked spaghetti coming Friday, and until then happy cooking everyone!
