Easy creamy mushroom toast is perfect for breakfast, lunch and dinner and can be made in no time at all for a delicious, easy vegetarian meal.

Creamy mushroom toast

Creamy mushroom toast has been a fail-safe recipe in my repertoire since I started cooking when I was 14. As a student, my then-boyfriend, now-husband and I would have mushrooms on toast often as it is so cheap and easy to make while being totally delicious. Now it is an easy breakfast, fast lunch, or simple dinner when I just can’t be bothered to cook a full meal. No matter what time of the day, creamy mushroom toast is ALWAYS a good idea.

How to make creamy mushroom toast

Using a variety of mushrooms will result in great texture and flavor. Pan-fry mushrooms until well browned (fry in batches to avoid crowding the pan which will cause the mushrooms to steam instead of sear). Add garlic, chilli/red pepper flakes and herbs of your choice and a few knobs of butter. Stir well then season with lemon, salt and pepper. At this point you can add a splash of cream but I find the butter does a good job of making the mushrooms nice and creamy.

Spoon the creamy mushrooms onto toasted bread smeared with cream cheese (optional) and serve.

What is the best bread for toasting?

Thick slices of bread are good for toasting, especially when you’ll be topping the toast with something like mushrooms. Any of the following breads will work for toasting:

  1. Thick sliced white bread.
  2. Sourdough
  3. Ciabatta
  4. Boule
  5. Country bread
  6. Thick sliced wholegrain bread.

What can I make with toast?

    I would just love this over ciabatta Alida. It looks just delicious and so easy for a quick and tasty meal. I’d enjoy it with a glass of sauvignon blanc!
