Mushroom Cheese Melts


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.

Lovely snack Raaga..I guess if we use a butter-garlic spread,it will be quite similar to pizza hut garlic bread with cheese and mushroom.

P.S - I tried out your version of kadgi-tori ghashi and Broccoli-mushroom soup today..needless to say both were yummilicious..shall blog about it soon!!
