Maille Old Style Mustard
A key ingredient to this simple mushroom toast is Maille old style mustard. I love the grainy texture and the intense flavor of this mustard. It compliments the earthiness of the mushrooms perfectly by adding some tang and acidity, and adds a whole new dimension to the flavor of simple mushrooms on toast!
Just a spoonful of this mustard goes a long way and can add so much flavor to your dressings or dishes.

What is mushrooms on toast?
Mushrooms on toast is a simple dish from Britain. It is traditionally kept very simple, just sauteeing up some mushrooms and eating them atop toast. It's eaten as a filling snack or a light meal rather than an entree.
This mushroom toast is a bit different than the traditional British meal. I add lots of flavor with swiss cheese, dijon mustard, and fresh thyme. I also broil the mushrooms and cheese over the bread and toast the whole thing together.
How to make mushroom toast
Mushroom toast is amazingly simple, but loaded with flavor. Since there are so few ingredients, you'll want to choose very high quality produce and products. Very fresh baby bella or cremini mushrooms, rustic bread with a hearty crust, whole grain dijon mustard like Maille old style mustard, and aged swiss cheese.
Chop your mushrooms and garlic and heat up a frying pan. Melt the butter and sweat the mushrooms. Add the garlic and saute together until the mushrooms are very brown and starting to crisp.
Turn on the broiler and build your mushroom toast. Spread the mustard on the bread, top with a bit of cheese, top with mustard, then top with more cheese. Broil until the cheese is melted and starting to brown. Sprinkle with fresh thyme, salt, and pepper.
How to serve mushrooms on toast as an appetizer
Mushroom toast makes an amazing appetizer! Think: mushroom crostini.
Just replace the bread in this recipe with baguette slices. You should be able to make about 8 mushroom crostinis just using smaller slices of bread. All of the ingredients will stay the same.
How to make mushroom toast a full meal
These mushroom toasts are rather large, and 2 of them could easily fill you up. The recipe in itself is much like an open faced mushroom melt or warm open faced mushroom sandwich.
- Top with arugula to add some greens to the dish
- Add a layer of cannellini beans before adding the mushrooms.
- Top with an additional slice of bread to make a sandwich
- Add some walnuts to your sauteed mushrooms
