Garlic Mushroom and Brie Toast – Garlicky mushroom deliciousness….. Well-seasoned mushrooms cooked with butter, garlic and thyme, served on top of melty brie-covered toast.Garlic Mushroom and Brie Toast

I’m loving me this superfast veggie lunch. Anyone else drooling right now?

I’m always amazed at the difference in taste between a raw mushroom and one that’s been sprinkled with salt and pepper and cooked in butter for a few minutes. That chewy, tender center and salty, crisp exterior. So so good.

Yet Chris and my kids would totally turn their noses up at it.
What is wrong with these people (erm, I mean lovely family members)??

Lewis used to like mushrooms, but I think Chris has brainwashed him. Gracey’s never really liked them.

In fairness, I thought I hated mushrooms until I left home to go to Uni. I decided I was a grown-up at that point, so it was ok for me to like them (and red wine too…).
Oh I missed out on so many mushroom eating years.Garlic Mushroom and Brie Toast cut into squares with a sprig of thyme ontop

Well I’m making up for it now.
Since I haven’t been successful in persuading Chris and the kids in eating them, I’ll just have to continue to make this all for myself.

Darn shame.

If you wanted to give your mushrooms a bit of a kick you could try my Cheesy Garlic and Chilli Stuffed Mushrooms.  Or then there’s my Tuscan Style Stuffed Mushrooms in Creamy Sun Dried Tomato Sauce.  OMG soo delicious!  Off to buy more mushrooms just for myself, maybe I’ll have a glass of red wine with it too 🙂

      So simple and delicious! In addition, I sliced up a few grape tomatoes; tossed them into the pan with the mushrooms and garlic after taking them off the heat. Exquisite. Ty!!

      Love the brie too, it’s a shame it’s so stinky – usually means I have to eat it all in one sitting 🙂
