Creamy Garlic Mushrooms

This recipe for Creamy Garlic Mushrooms on Toast is quick and easy, making it the perfect choice for busy mornings or a speedy gourmet snack. It’s also packed with flavour and nutrients. The earthy taste of the mushrooms, sautéed in butter and a hint of garlic, brings a robust and comforting flavour to the dish. I add a touch of French mustard and fresh parsley to enhance the mushrooms’ natural umami and give a slight tang and freshness that complements the sauce’s creaminess.

Mushrooms are a fantastic source of nutrients — they’re low in calories but rich in B vitamins, selenium, potassium, and fibre, which are great for boosting your health. Adding cream adds a luxurious texture and a bit of richness, making the toast feel indulgent yet still wholesome.

Preparing this dish is a breeze. It takes just a few minutes to cook the mushrooms, combine them with the other ingredients, and then spoon them over freshly toasted bread. It’s ideal for those who need a quick yet satisfying meal without compromising taste or health benefits. Whether you’re looking for a comforting breakfast or a light dinner, these Creamy Garlic Mushrooms on Toast will fill the spot.

Creamy Garlic Mushrooms On Toast

So as I am trying to be a culinary master I decided that I had to step up the ordinary mushrooms on toast. I did have a selection of exotic mushrooms leftover from the weekend along with a brioche bun. The great thing about mushrooms is that they cook so quickly and you can literally have a snack on the table in five minutes. Butter, mushrooms love butter as the porous flesh just soaks up any flavour and fats you introduce to it.

The Mushrooms

If you don’t have any exotic or wild mushrooms simple button mushrooms will suffice. Ideally for a deeper flavour have a few chestnut mushrooms in there to add the depth of flavour. How do you clean the mushrooms? Never with water, as the flesh is porous it will soak up the water. I use either a paper towel or a pastry brush to get the flecks of dirt off the mushroom. In this recipe I used Oyster mushrooms, shiitake mushrooms, chestnut mushrooms and shiro shimeji. Of course the parsley was from the garden. One item you do need to add to the creamy garlic mushrooms sauce is mustard to balance the flavours.
