Ingredients

  • 4 portobello mushrooms
  • Olive oil, for brushing
  • Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 clove garlic, crushed
  • 3 4 ounces mozzarella, thinly sliced
  • A few spigs of fresh oregano
  • Ciabatta, sliced, for serving
  • Finely grated Parmesan cheese, for sprinkling

Directions

  • Preheat the oven to 375°F.
  • Brush the mushrooms or quickly rinse and dry well. Trim the stems. Brush with olive oil. Season and smear with garlic. Sandwich with sliced mozzarella and oregano.
  • Place on a square of parchment paper on a baking tray. Bake for 15 minutes or until just cooked and still meaty. At the same time, bake the sliced ciabatta, until crisp and golden.
  • Serve the mozzarella mushrooms on the toasted bread. Spoon over the pan juices, sprinkle with Parmesan and add a twist or two of black pepper. Serve immediately while the mozzarella is hot and oozing -- it will toughen on cooling.
