Mushrooms on Toast – A Delicious Snack in 15 Minutes

If you’ve been following my blog, you know that I’m all about cooking quick, rustic dishes using whatever I have in my kitchen with only a handful of ingredients. This dish is so easy and delicious, it’s a simple pleasure of mine and I like to make it for myself as a quick lunch or a savory snack for two. I could seriously eat this everyday!

The possibilities are endless with the ingredients, as long as you have mushrooms, herbs and a few slices of bread. Any combination of mushrooms would work. I used a dried medley of crimini, chanterelle, porcini, shiitake, maitake and oyster mushrooms which I use often in my recipes. I also added some cream for a little sauce, but it’s not necessary. 

Saute garlic in olive oil, then add mushrooms.

Add herbs, salt and pepper, then finish off with cream and butter.

Spoon mushrooms on toast and add a sprinkle of cheese on top.

Mushrooms on Toast Recipe

  • 2-4 slices bread, toasted
  • 2-3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 garlic clove, chopped
  • 1/2 pound mushrooms, roughly chopped
  • 2 teaspoons dried herbs (parsley, thyme and rosemary would work)
  • 1-2 tablespoons butter
  • 1 tablespoon cream (optional)
  • salt and pepper, to taste
  • pecorino romano cheese, for topping

    In a pan, saute garlic in olive oil on medium heat for a minute. Add mushrooms and herbs to pan and cook for 7-10 minutes, stirring occasionally. In the meantime, toast your bread slices. In pan, season with salt and pepper, then stir in cream and butter. Serve mushrooms on top of toast with a grating of pecorino romano on top.

    Total time: 15 minutes
    Yield: 2-4 servings

      I make a very similar sauted mushroom recipe! It’s also very good with quick cooking polenta with some gruyere added in. I just found your blog and I am loving it! I got a vitamix for Christmas and the green smoothie recipes have been very helpful and delicious!

        Yum, the addition of polenta and gruyere sound fantastic 🙂

        Congrats on getting a Vitamix for Christmas. We have a BlendTec but I hear great things about the Vitamix as well. I’m glad the green smoothies are working out for you. Thank so much for the comment, Nicole!
