Mushroom Garlic bread with cheese


Mushroom Garlic Bread with Cheese

Hi And welcome

I’m not going to lie, this recipe came from not having much left in the cupboards or fridge! It actually turned out really well and the missus loved it which is a plus! 

I’ve made this Cheesy Mushroom garlic bread a few times now and its really quick and simple to make. It makes a really good starter or a fancy lunch. You could serve these as crostini’s at a party, they certainly would go down well.

The key is freshly baked baguette 

If the baker is a good they should be using a french flour and ideally it should still be warm when you buy it. I don’t like using the prepackaged part baked variety as they are full of additives but if thats you you have then it will be fine.

Use a good quality butter 

I like to use lots of it! I use a small batch hand churned finished off with sea salt, the one I use is from a small Cornish farm. I don’t actually buy it from the farm I just have good supermarkets near me!

I like to use fresh Parsley and fresh Thyme for this recipe. You could use the dried stuff but I find the flavour is more pronounced in the fresh versions.

Quality mature cheddar cheese

Is also a key ingredient and fresh garlic is also a must! I mince my garlic really fine then use the back of a life to grind it to a plus, salt helps grind the garlic up, just don’t use to much of it!
I think the best way to cut the mushrooms is to make them nice and thick, you want to taste the mushroom and it needs to hold ups against the cheese, herbs and garlic! 

To make this Cheesy Mushroom Garlic bread

you will need
  • 1 Freshly baked baguette
  • 100 grams of butter (remember to make it good quality)
  • 1 clove of garlic 
  • small handful of fresh parsley

  • Handful of chestnut mushrooms
  • 100 grams of mature cheddar cheese
