We have a guest in the kitchen! We’re thrilled to welcome back a familiar face, Kathy, formerly of eatHalifax. These days Kathy is teaming up with with talented food photographer, Kelly Neil, to launch Wild Card Creative! No matter where we find her, we know her recipes are dynamite and we can’t wait to dig into today’s creation…
True mushroom lovers relish the simplicity of the British classic, mushrooms on toast. I mean what is better than toast piled high with buttery sautéed mushrooms? Garlic toasted sourdough and crème fraîche elevate this roasted version but it’s the locally grown cremini, cinnamon cap, and oyster mushrooms that steal the show.
Prep Time: 5 minutes | Cook Time: 15 minutes | Serves 4
2 tbsp. butter
500 g. mixed mushrooms
3 cloves garlic, smashed
3 sprigs fresh thyme
4 thick slices sourdough
4 tsp. garlic butter

1. Put a large cast iron (or baking sheet) in the oven while it preheats to 400°F.
2. Add the butter then quickly stir in the mushrooms, garlic, thyme, and a pinch each of salt and pepper.
3. Roast until browned, about 8-10 minutes. Remove from oven.
