Ingredients

  • 15g butter
  • A glug of olive oil
  • 200g mushrooms, sliced
  • 100ml cider
  • 4 fresh thyme sprigs
  • 1 garlic clove
  • 1 free-range egg
  • A thick slice of sourdough bread

Method

  1. In a frying pan, melt the butter with a glug of olive oil. Add the mushrooms, then fry over a high heat until browned. Season well.
  2. Add the cider and thyme sprigs, then bubble the mixture until it has reduced to a thick, syrupy sauce.
  3. Meanwhile, poach a medium free-range egg and toast a thick slice of sourdough bread. Split a garlic clove in half, then rub over the toasted sourdough. To serve, top the toast with the mushrooms, poached egg and a good grinding of black pepper, garnished with the thyme sprigs.
