Creamy Mushrooms and Egg

On the weekend my breakfasts tend to be a bit more extravagant than during the week. During the week I’m cooking quite a bit so often keep it really simple – mostly cereal. It was a chilly start this morning (Saturday) and I wanted something rich. Knowing I had some cream to use up before it went off I knocked up this creamy mushrooms and egg recipe. It’s really easy to make with only a few ingredients, yet it packs lots of comforting flavours.

  • 5 medium chestnut mushroom, sliced
  • 1 large free range egg
  • 1 garlic clove, crushed
  • 1 teaspoon parsley, finely chopped
  • splash of double cream
  • knob of salted butter
  • salt and black pepper to taste
  • Step 1 Heat a knob of butter in a skillet or small frying pan.
  • Step 2 Place the mushrooms in the pan and fry on a medium heat for about 4 minutes. Add garlic, stir and cook for a further minute.
  • Step 3 Add cream, stir, then move a bit of the creamy mushroom over to the side of the pan to create a crater. Crack in an egg and poach in the sauce on a lowish heat until the egg white has set. Add salt and pepper to taste.
  • Step 4 Once cooked sprinkle with fresh parsley.
  • Step 5 Serve with toast to mop up that delicious creamy sauce.
