This recipe is inspired by a mushroom toast I had at a restaurant while staying in the Algarve region of southern Portugal. Instead of a poached egg, theirs was served with a raw egg yolk on top.


Sauté 2 min on med/low heat

  • 1 large diced shallot
  • 2 T butter

Then add to the pan

  • 3 cremini mushrooms chopped
  • 1 shiitake mushroom chopped
  • 1 Portobello mushroom chopped
  • 1 clove garlic (minced)
  • 2 T olive oil
  • 1 t fresh thyme


Sauté 10 min, stirring often, or until the mushrooms are reduced in size, soft & slightly browned. Pile spoonfuls of the mushroom mixture onto 4 slices of toasted, buttered bread & top each with a fried or poached egg, salt & pepper.
