I loathe those kinds of nights. It's so easy to grab a pizza and call it a day. Or better, a big bowl of cereal.
We have found the antidote:
|Egg on Toast, Bacon and Sauteed Mushrooms|
|Try Not To Toss Too Early|
|You're Looking for this Caramelization|
|Add in Your Wine, Spices, Onions and Garlic|
This mushroom topping is perfect on a grilled steak, but really not too shabby on a poached egg. Dare I say it stole the show?
Here's how I did it:
1 lb mushrooms, cleaned and quartered
2 tbsp butter, 1 tsp oil
1/2 onion, chopped
1 clove garlic, minced
1 tsp dried thyme
salt and pepper to taste
4 tbsp white wine
Combine oil and butter over medium-low heat. Add mushrooms and let sit for a couple minutes - resist the urge to immediately toss them.
Continue cooking until all mushrooms are browned, add in spices, seasoning, garlic and onion. Continue to cook until onions are softened.
Add in wine and cook a further 2-3 minutes until wine has evaporated and mushrooms are a golden brown. Serve immediately.
