Omg just had my favourite lunch….. Ever. Mushrooms and garlic cooked in tarragon and red wine, with a cooked egg and nutmeg.
I have shared this recipe before on Facebook and have seen others around the place. As I’m using this blog only now, here again is my take on it.
Mushrooms (I use a whole punnet on 2 of us)
Garlic cloves.. as many as you can handle. I use 3
Nutmeg (1/2 TSP)
Grated cheese (about a handful… Yours not his)
Cherry tomatoes on the vine (coz it looks posh)
Virgin olive oil.. Not that tramp oil that’s been around the block a few times
2 frying pans, or a wok and frying pan
Peel and break apart the mushrooms into nice size pieces
Slice the garlic
Add to pan of hot olive oil
Sprinkle with the tarragon
Cook on high heat
Put the kitchen fan on
Take a drink of red wine, then pour in a good dollop.
Take another drink… Glass not needed
Put on med-high simmer
In the meantime, fry your cherry tomatoes still on the vine in the frying pan. Place on a small plate when done
Break 4 eggs and whisk in nutmeg
Turn on grill to high
Pour eggs into frying pan you just cooked the tomatoes in
Cook bum of egg … Don’t turn or stir
Sprinkle with grated cheese when bum done
Place frying pan under grill
When cheese melts and egg finished cooking, serve with the mushrooms and pop the tomatoes on top!!
Please comment on this blog post if you make it, or would like me to make more recipes from my kitchen……..
