Garlic mushroom starter

Garlic mushroom starter

Mushroom bruschetta are ideal if you are having people over or want something tastier than chips when watching a great DVD. That Salticracks ad of the beginning of the month, middle of the month, end of the month salticracks got me making these. They are really simple and so tasty. Try to use a combination of different mushrooms to add a different taste level but not necessary. The amount of mushrooms sounds like a lot but remember they reduce quite significantly when cooked.

What you need

1kg mushrooms halved (if you use different types, the size should be about ½ a small button mushroom)
1 targe onion halved and sliced
2 teaspoons garlic
3 heaped tablespoons butter
Salt and pepper
Olive oil
Basil leaves ripped

The process

Heat a little oil in your pan on a medium heat, add the butter and allow it to foam, now add your onions and cook until soft.

Add your mushrooms and cook until they are beginning to soften and reduce in size. You may need to add a little extra butter as the mushrooms soak it up at a rate. Add a little salt and pepper to taste and toss around for a minute or so.

Remove from the heat and pile up on slices of tasted Italian style bread that has been toasted.

So simple, so tasty.

For the most simple and tasty dessert try the black cherry sauce for ice cream
