  • Step 5

    Melt butter in a small pan, and then stir in the mushrooms. Cook mushrooms on low heat (high if you’re impatient) for 3 minutes, until they turn darker and softer.

    #SpoonTip: Cooking mushrooms in butter brings out their taste better than cooking it in plain vegetable oil. 

  • Step 6

    Season mushrooms with salt and pepper as needed.

  • Step 7

    Lay mushrooms on the toasted cheese bread and put the two halves together to make a sandwich.

    All that’s left is to ~enjoy~.
