How to Make Breakfast Essentials: Mushrooms & Eggs on Toast


  2. Gather your Ingredients (mise en place).
  3. Add the butter and oil to a small sauté pan over medium heat.
  4. When the foaming subsides, add the mushrooms.
  5. Allow them to cook until they begin to soften and brown, about 6 – 8 minutes.
  6. Chef’s Note: While the mushrooms are cooking, season with some salt, pepper, and the optional cayenne (if using).
  7. Use a slotted spoon and place the mushrooms on a piece of toast.
  8. Immediately, return the sauté pan to heat, and add the egg.
  9. Chef’s Note: There should be plenty of oil in the pan from cooking the mushrooms. Plus by using the same pan it will add a bit of flavor to the egg.
  10. Cook until the white is fully set, and the yolk is still runny about 2 - 3 minutes.
  11. Add the egg to the top of the mushrooms.
  13. Drizzle with some hollandaise sauce (if using), and maybe a bit of chopped dill. Enjoy.
  14. Keep the faith, and keep cooking.
