I’m a HUGE mushroom lover. When I was a kid I would come home from school, cut up mushrooms and saute them quickly in butter and devour! It was my favorite afterschool treat even though my parents thought I was a cold stone weirdo for cooking mushrooms as a snack.

If there was such thing as #yolo back then I likely would have sarcastically stated that as I shoved mushrooms down my wide open gullet.

So, since #yolo is now a thing – #yolo.

Even though I’m a lot older now my love for mushroom is still strong. I love cooking up huge batches and serving them as a delicious side for dinner and sometimes I’ll happily eat them with a big fat runny egg piled on top. It’s a true love that will never die.

Last month when I was in Amsterdam we walked around one rainy afternoon looking for a spot to grab a quick bite to eat. We walked into a small cafe, deemed the menu sufficient and sat down to warm up and stuff our faces.

I ordered a big giant bowl of soup and my husband and I both ordered the lunch special – wild mushrooms on toast with a poached egg. It was so homey and comforting that I knew the second I got home I needed to make this simple dish. I mean, I love mushrooms and I love eggs so why wouldn’t I love them all with toast?

To make this dish a little different I added tons of garlic and fresh herbs to really give the mushroom a big kick of flavor. There is something so utterly fantastic about garlic and mushrooms. Match made in heaven!

I also think it’s really important to use a really crusty bread for a dish like this. I happened to use a rye sourdough I had on hand BUT really any type of sourdough or peasant bread would be perfect type to toast up for this dish.

Oh, and I know that a poached egg might be a little fancier than my humble fried egg but I so very rarely actually poach eggs in my house. I’m a fried girl all the way!

    I am so with you on the holiday thing. Can we just slow down and enjoy one holiday at a time?!
    I love that you added fennel to these tortellini. Not everyone loves it, but I think it brings out loads of flavor!

    Dear Brandy, it looks like we are both on the same page. Pasta Mondays are always a good way to start the week..and don’t get me started on Tuesday leftovers 😉
    Another note we agree on, cheesy holiday movies. My kids make me feel like I’m the only one out there who watches them. It’s a holiday tradition now for me!
    I would love to sit back and enjoy a plate of this while indulging in my favorite holiday movies! xo, Catherine

    I’m with you 100%. Monday’s require pasta. No Christmas until after Thanksgiving. AND cheesy Holiday movies for the win. Gosh. I think we must be spirit animals! Now, can I face plant into this bowl of deliciousness please!?!?

    I’m definitely old school – I just cannot get into Christmas before Thanksgiving, but I can get into a big bowl of this pretty much anytime. and on this dark and rainy Monday, it sounds just about perfect

    I cannot get into Christmas before Thanksgiving, either! And the time change? Since I moved to AZ years ago (we don’t change the clocks – kooky), all it does is confuse me about when I can call people in other timezones! I *can* get into the dish! I absolutely LOVE fennel (and tortellini. And Sausage. And mushrooms). So, yeah. Love it!

    Yeah, I refuse to start thinking/decorating/listening to Christmas related things until after Thanksgiving. Although I will also watch those movies any time…I’m such a sap. This pasta sounds and looks fantastic, so delicious fall flavors.

    I’m telling you I am not digging this whole Daylight Saving nonsense. It’s just dumb.

    My daughter is the army so she had a chat with me about not decorating for Christmas before Remembrance Day. I usually don’t decorate till Mid-December but I was going to decorate earlier this year. But I’ll likely wait quite awhile. I promised K I’d honour her wishes. Plus the tree will croak if I put it up too early. I always get a real one. Usually we get busy and end up putting up a tree on Christmas Eve. Oy!

    I am seriously loving this pasta. I want to shove my whole face in it. You rock at photography, girl. I just love staring at your photos. I wish I had this much talent. #goals
