Author Notes: This recipe was inspired by a contest going on at Marx Foods. They sent a sample of candy cap mushrooms to me and all I had to do was make a recipe and submit to their contest. Very fun, and very delicious! Candy cap mushrooms smell strongly of maple syrup. I thought this recipe would be fantastic for a holiday breakfast.

  • 1 loaf white bread- preferably day old
  • 1/4 cup dried candy cap mushrooms
