There is much debate about eating carbs. Are they good or are they bad? I consider them neither. Everything in moderation! Being on a vegetarian diet I at times indulge in a lot of carbs. Also, how easy is toast when you have busy morning? I am a huge fan of mushroom on my toast
My family loves to munch on toast and chai in the morning. This is very common on my husband’s side as well. Something about a warm breakfast that starts the day off on a great note.
How many of you take the time to plan breakfast? I never used to prior to the pandemic unless it was the weekend. Nowadays I am embracing being home by utilizing my kitchen as much as possible. Has staying at home during the pandemic changed your morning routine? Do you take the time to eat breakfast? Do you like mushrooms for breakfast?
I do also love a good sandwich. Aren’t these loaded toasts just a version of an open faced sandwich?
Also in my family we have folks not fond of mushrooms. You can place with asparagus, broccoli, red peppers, eggplant, and zucchini. One thing to also note, this toast is great warm or cold. As much as I love a warm breakfast I also like something I can make in advance. You can take this to go or even pack it for lunch.
This recipe is great for anytime of the day…not exclusively breakfast. Drop me a comment and let me know what you think! How does mushroom toast compare to any other veggie of choice? How do you usually prepare your toast?
