MUSHROOM AND BACON ON TOAST - COOK'S NOTES
The Spanish are obsessed with harvesting wild mushrooms and quite right because they taste so good. For most of us though, who can't tell the difference between a poisonous mushroom and a safe one, it's best to buy them form the shops!

Rather than using the button mushrooms, do try a couple of different varieties to add taste and interest. We've all heard of the fantastic taste of ham in Spain but their bacon also tastes good. We suggest using streaky bacon because the high fat content adds plenty of natural flavour.

Finally to the choice of bread. We've selected sourdough bread because it's strong and meaty and can easily absorb all the juices from the cooking process without going soggy.

INGREDIENTS

350g / 12oz of mushrooms - at least two types
One medium tomato
Half an onion (red preferably)
4 thick slices of sourdough bread
2 garlic cloves
Sprig of thyme or half a teaspoon of dried
4 tablespoons of Spanish extra virgin olive oil
Salt and pepper to taste
