INGREDIENTS

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

How to make Mushroom Grilled Cheese

Step 1: Place the butter in a pan and melt over medium heat.

Step 2: Saute the onion for about 5 to 7 minutes until tender.

Step 3: Add in the garlic and thyme and continue cooking for another minute until fragrant.

Step 4: Add and saute the cremini mushrooms. Cook for 10 to 15 minutes more until it begins to caramelize and the mushrooms turn golden brown.

Step 5: Pour in the white wine and deglaze the pan. Continue to cook for 2 to 3 minutes until the liquid has evaporated.

Step 6: Now, season with salt and pepper to taste. And add in the parsley.

Step 7: Remove the pan from the heat and let it cool a little.

Step 8: When the mushrooms are a bit cooled, stir in the cheese.

Step 9: Put some butter on each side of the bread. Put 2 pieces of bread side down in the pan.

Step 10: Top each bread with half of the mushroom mixture and cover with the rest of the bread side up.

Step 11: Grill for about 2 to 4 minutes each side until the cheese is melted and the bread is golden brown.
