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
Use a good quality butter
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
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!
