Yesterday afternoon, without warning, I became ravenous.

I was so hungry, I was starting to get shaky. So I opened the fridge, and to my dismay, there wasn’t some perfect, delectable snack sitting on a plate, waiting to be eaten.
But wait: I spied some leftover sautéed mushrooms, and fresh mozzarella cheese! Oooh, I was getting excited! So this is what I concocted~
Now, do you need a recipe for fresh mozzarella & mushroom toast? Absolutely not, but make sure to use quality ingredients!
Just toast a piece of bread (preferably homemade) then place a couple of slices of fresh mozzarella on the toast, and top with some sautéed mushrooms. (You can totally use any type of mozzarella, or even another type of melty cheese.) I sauté mushrooms with olive oil and garlic, which adds so much flavor, and then season with salt and pepper. You can also freeze them to always have some on hand.
Don’t tell my mum, but you can put this baby in the microwave for a few seconds, until the cheese starts to melt–that’s it! If you don’t have a microwave, just pop it in your toaster oven, or regular oven, under the broiler (grill).
Mushroom lover? I have lots more recipes, like this Ricotta and Mushroom Fettuccine!
And if you’re wondering if I took these pictures of this perfect, delectable snack while I was still ravenous and shaking–the answer is yes.
I guess I’m a hard core food blogger now, but oh, was it worth the wait!
