Whilst we created this recipe for our recent BRUNCH Discovery Box, this Truffle Mushroom Bruschetta actually makes the perfect breakfast, snack, lunch or dinner when you want to whip up something simple but soooo delicious.
The truffle infused olive oil used here is your secret weapon to supercharge this and many more dishes. If you're yet to cook with truffles, this is a great starting point and introduction to its unique, earthy flavour.
Truffle Mushroom Bruschetta with Goats Cheese
Heat 1 TB of the truffle extra virgin olive oil in a small, heavy based pan. Cook the French shallot over a low heat until translucent, but not brown. Turn the heat up high and add the thyme and the mixed mushrooms and cook for approx three minutes or until the mushrooms have softened and caramelised. Stir in the balsamic vinegar and remove from heat.
Slice the sourdough loaf into thick slices and spread with butter. Place them under the grill for a few minutes till toasted and golden, or pan fry them on a griddle pan. Spread the goats cheese on the slices and top with the mushrooms. Drizzle a bit of the truffle extra virgin olive oil over the top with freshly cracked pepper and sea salt flakes.
Serves 2 or use smaller bread slices to create a sharing platter
