A quick French recipe for two – tartines are made by toasting slices of baguette with pancetta, mushrooms and cheese.

Ingredients

  • 70g cubed pancetta or lardons
  • 6 medium field mushrooms, thickly sliced
  • 25g garlic butter
  • 2 teaspoons fresh thyme leaves
  • A thick rustic baguette
  • 60g mild Cheddar, diced
  • Tomato salad, to serve

Method

  1. Fry the pancetta or lardons in a dry frying pan for a few minutes, until turning golden. Remove from the pan with a slotted spoon and set aside to drain on a plate lined with kitchen paper.
  2. Discard the excess fat from the pan, then add the mushrooms and garlic butter. Cook over a medium heat for 5 minutes, turning the mushrooms occasionally, until cooked and fragrant. Stir in the thyme leaves.
  3. Preheat the grill to medium, cut 4 large diagonal slices from the baguette and toast for 1 minute, until golden on 1 side. Turn the slices over and top the untoasted sides with the mushrooms, drizzling with the pan juices, then with the cheese and pancetta.
  4. Grill for a further 1-2 minutes, until oozing and melted. Serve immediately, with a tomato salad.
