I bought a packet of burger buns. I hoped to make cutlets and stuff them inside these buns. As it turned out, I didn't seem to have the time for cutlets. I didn't want to see a bag of 6 burger buns go waste. I also had a packet of mushrooms. I had some sort of a light meal in mind, but I wasn't sure exactly what it was. I experimented with what I had and the fact that I'm posting this here means that it was a great success.
4 Burger Buns, cut in half and toasted lightly
200g Mushrooms, chopped
1 Onion, finely chopped
1 tbsp Garlic, finely chopped
1 tsp Chilli Flakes
1 tsp Thyme
1 tbsp Olive Oil
Salt and Pepper to taste
4 tbsp Cheddar Cheese, grated
Heat the olive oil in a pan. Add the garlic, chilli flakes and thyme. Fry for a minute or two. Add the chopped onions and fry till the onions turn translucent. Add the mushrooms, salt and pepper and cook for 3-4 minutes.
Preheat the oven to 400F.
Place a little bit of the mushroom mixture on each bun half. Sprinkle a little cheese over the mushroom mixture. Place the bun halves on a baking tray and bake for 10 minutes or until the cheese melts.
Serve immediately as a snack or along with some soup to make it a complete meal.
