Open Face Maitake Mushroom Sandwich
Ingredients (all are approximations):
- 3-5 TB butter
- 1 lb Maitake mushrooms, coarsely chopped
- 1/4 cup shallots, finely chopped
- 2 cloves garlic, minced
- thyme and chives from herb garden
- salt and pepper
- cracked pepper goat cheese
- fresh baguette, sliced
Melt a few tablespoons of butter in a saute pan on medium high heat. Cook the shallots until they begin to soften. Add the garlic and cook for about 30 seconds.
Then add the mushrooms. Season generously with salt and pepper and stir continuously.
You will probably want to add several more tablespoons of butter at this point. Throw in some herbs. Cook until the mushrooms are soft. Turn off the heat and let the mushrooms mixture sit in the pan. Meanwhile, spread your goat cheese on top of your bread slices and toast.
Top with mushroom mixture and serve immediately.
