Buttery Mushrooms & Sourdough

Autumn -my favourite season, such a great time for food and especially for mushrooms. I remember as a child picking field mushrooms, seeking out the white tops amongst the green grass, competing with my siblings about who could find the most. Racing inside and popping them on top of the solid fuel cooker, with a little sprinkle of salt and pepper, waiting and waiting ...and then finally hearing the sizzle as some of the juice would land on the stove top. Gently we would lift them off and with too few cooling blows, we'd start munching on our treasure. Mushrooms a la stove top was probably the first thing I ever 'cooked', now I can also cook toast... which is useful, never underestimate a delicious piece of toast.


Pan fry with lots of butter and thyme...add a poached egg, for brunch, lunch or a light dinner.
