Mushrooms. Is there anything better than mushrooms fried in butter?! With garlic of course. Well, this sourdough toast with both mushrooms and gooey melted brie is certainly a contender.
It’s definitely for the colder parts of the year, but it’s sooo good! The perfect little evening indulgence on a cold and windy day.
Mushroom toast with brie and rosemary, serves 1
1 slice white sourdough bread
1 tbsp salted butter for frying
6 chestnut mushrooms, sliced
a small handful dried forest mushroom (I had a mixture of black trumpet, porcini and chantarelles)
1 tbsp butter + 1 msk oil for frying
1/2 (or 1 small) garlic clove, finely chopped
1-2 tsp chopped rosemary
1 large slice ripe brie (I used Sainsbury’s Somerset brie which is surprisingly good and ripe)
1 sprig rosemary
Put the dried mushrooms in a bowl and cover with warm water. Fry the sourdough in butter on medium heat until golden on both sides. Drain on kitchen towel.
Squeeze the excess water out of the no-longer-dry mushrooms. Fry together with the fresh mushrooms in butter and oil on medium-high heat until nicely browned. Add the garlic and rosemary. Fry for a minute or so. Add salt and pepper.
Place the fried sourdough on a parchment paper covered oven tray. Top with the fried mushrooms and put the slice of brie on top. Place in the top of the oven in 200C, until the cheese has melted, approx 5 mins.
Plate and garnish with a sprig of rosemary.
