To make two huge, generously stacked pieces you'll need:
3-4 handfuls of mushrooms
1/2 an onion, finely chopped
1 big clove of garlic, crushed
Big lump of butter
Fist sized chunk of cheese (I used raclette but gruyere, emmental and fontina melt beautifully too)
Pinch of dried sage
Pinch of dried thyme
Pinch of salt
Good sprinkling of black pepper
A really nice, rustic loaf of bread cut into thick slices.
On a medium heat melt your butter in a frying pan. When it's melted throw in your onions and cook until clear & soft. Add your garlic and cook until the onions and garlic just start to turn brown.
Add your mushrooms and sweat them out until they're soft, brown and smelling gorgeous. Add another little pat of butter if you think they need it.
In the meantime toast your bread.
Sprinkle your dried herbs, salt and pepper into your mushroom mix and stir. Cut your cheese into small chunks and add to the pan, stirring lots. Cover the pan for just a couple of mins until all the cheese has melted. Give it a good stir and scoop onto your waiting toast.
Grind a little more pepper over the top and serve.
Bish bash bosh!
