Sherried Mushrooms and Fried Eggs on Toast

sherried mushrooms2

I LOVE fried eggs. Once I saw this recipe for mushrooms that are browned and cooked in sherry then served on toast with a fried egg, I knew it had my name on it. It did not disappoint. David and I like to eat breakfast for dinner every now and then and this yummy dish might have to make it into the rotation.

Preheat the oven to 400°. In a large skillet, heat the 2 tablespoons of oil until shimmering. Add the mushrooms and season with salt and pepper. Cook over moderate heat, stirring a few times, until softened, about 4 minutes. Add the onion and cook, stirring occasionally, until the onion is softened and the mushrooms are browned, about 3 minutes longer. Add the sherry and cook until almost evaporated, about 1 minute. Season with salt and pepper. Remove from the heat, cover and set aside.


Arrange the bread slices on a large rimmed baking sheet and brush with olive oil. Bake for about 6 minutes, until toasted. Transfer the toasts to plates.

In a large, nonstick skillet, melt the butter over moderate heat. Crack the eggs one at a time into a ramekin and then slip into the skillet. Cook the eggs, sunny-side up, until the whites are firm but the yolks are still runny.

Spoon the mushroom mixture onto the toasts and top with the fried eggs. Garnish with the parsley and serve.
