Why Mushrooms Make the Best Toast Topper

Hilary Deutsch

April 10, 2017


Earthy, meaty mushrooms have met their match in this simple recipe from JBF Award winner Darra Goldstein's gorgeous tome, Fire + Ice: Classic Nordic Cooking, a 2016 Beard Award nominee in our Best Cookbook: Photography category. Known as svamptoast in Swedish, this dish calls for golden chanterelle mushrooms sautéed in butter, a few splashes of heavy cream, and a final flourish of lemon juice and parsley. Piled onto buttery, pan-fried bread, this is "Swedish comfort food at its best, quickly prepared and utterly satisfying." We'd have to agree. Make it tonight.
