Mushroom crogue madame 0183 prv


  • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 200g mushrooms, sliced
  • ½ leek, thinly sliced
  • 1 tablespoon plain flour
  • 3/4 cup skim milk
  • 2 teaspoons Dijon mustard
  • 3/4 cup baby spinach leaves, plus extra to serve ( optional)
  • 2/3 cup light tasty cheese, finely grated
  • 4 large slices wholemeal sourdough
  • 2 eggs
  • Finely chopped chives, to serve
  • Baby herbs, to garnish (optional)


1. Heat 2 tsp of oil in saucepan over medium-high heat. Cook mushrooms for 5 minutes, until golden brown. Season and remove from pan.

2. Heat 1 tbsp of oil in the pan over medium heat. Cook leek for 4 minutes, until soft. Stir in flour and cook for 1 minute. Gradually add milk, stirring to prevent any lumps. Cook for 3 minutes, stirring, or until mixture boils and thickens. Stir in the mustard and 1/3 cup of the cheese. Season to taste.

3. Spread leek mixture evenly onto 2 slices of bread. Top with a layer of mushrooms, spinach and the remaining cheese. Sandwich together with remaining bread. Toast in a sandwich press for 4 minutes, until golden brown and cheese has melted.

4. Meanwhile, heat remaining 2 tsp of oil in a non-stick frying pan over high heat. Crack the eggs into the pan and cook for 2-3 minutes, until whites are set and yolks are still runny.

5. Top each sandwich with a fried egg to serve. Scatter with chives and baby herbs.
