Grab some oyster mushrooms, sauté them with butter, garlic and white wine. Pile them on a toast topped with Brie cheese, pop under the broiler until bubbly and melty. Then sprinkle some thyme and pour yourself a glass of white wine and you've got a lovely evening snack. —Iglika Petrova/Sprig of Thyme
good quality Brie cheese (like Delice De Bourgogne)
In This Recipe
Brush the mushrooms with a dry brush to remove any dirt and tear the large mushrooms into about 1-inch pieces. Heat a large nonstick pan over medium high heat, when nice and hot add the butter, mushrooms and salt. Cook for 2 minutes, stir and add the garlic scapes and the wine (if using). Cook for 1-2 additional minutes until the edges of the mushrooms turn golden brown. Add thyme leaves and set aside.
Heat the broiler. Cut the Brie cheese into about 1/4-inch (5-6 mm) slices. Top the toasts with the Brie and 1/4 of the mushroom mixture. Arrange the toasts on a baking sheet and place them under the broiler. Bake for 1-2 minutes, or until the Brie has slightly melted and has browned on the edges. Since ovens vary, check toasts often or you might end up with totally melted or burnt toasts.
Pour yourself a nice glass of chilled Sauvignon Blanc and enjoy!
