All Things Delicious


All melty and gooey and delicious.

Yup. That's pretty perfect!
Add the hub's perfect homemade bread and this meal is spot on!!

Thanks to Closet Cooking for this fantastic recipe!

I did make a few slight changes which I posted here.
1 tablespoon butter
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 small onion, sliced
8 ounces cremini mushrooms, sliced
2 cloves garlic, chopped
1 teaspoon thyme, chopped
1/4 cup white wine or broth
salt and pepper to taste
1 tablespoon parsley, chopped
1/2 teaspoon truffle oil * I omitted this
1 cup fontina or gruyere, shredded
1/4 cup parmigiano reggiano, grated - I skipped this added cheese
4 slices bread
2 tablespoon butter

Melt the butter and heat the oil in a pan over medium heat.
Add the onion and saute until tender, about 5-7 minutes.
Add the garlic and thyme and saute until fragrant, about a minutes.
Add the cremini mushrooms and saute until the start to caramelized and turn golden brown, about 10-15 minutes.
Add the wine, deglaze the pan and cook until most of the liquid has evaporated.
Season with salt and pepper and remove from heat and let cool a bit. * I omitted the salt - there's plenty of sodium with the cheese.

Mix the cheese into the mushrooms. * Instead of doing this, I layered the mushrooms and cheese on the bread and then did the grilled cheese portion.

Butter one side of each slice of bread and place 2 in the pan buttered side down.

Top each with 1/2 of the mushroom mixture and finally the remaining slices of bread with the buttered side up.

Grill until the cheese has melted and the bread is golden brown, about 2-4 minutes per side.
