Mushrooming without Fear: The Beginner's Guide to Collecting Safe and Delicious MushroomsLast Sunday we happened to get ourselves a bag of this yummy oyster mushrooms (Pleurotus spp.), after I pestered hubby that we stop by Mushroom Burger (Tagaytay) before going home. I wasn't sure what to do with the mushrooms but I wanted something quick and easy (as usual). Since we were having eggs for breakfast the next day, I thought I'd do an omellete.

Here's what I did: chopped the mushrooms in small sizes (didn't wash them or else they'd absorb all the water! just 'dusted off' some small particles that wasn't part of the fungi), then sauteed them gently in melted unsalted butter. I also added a bit of  pepper, smoked paprika and a few drops of soy sauce. No salt. When wilted I took them out and added the scrambled eggs to the pan. Dropped the cooked mushrooms on top of the eggs, folded it, then continued cooking until it was set (sorry, I don't like my eggs to be runny). I was supposed to add cheese before folding it over, but I forgot. Hehehe.

I ate mine with rice while the rest of the family ate theirs with buttered toast. :D

We've always loved mushroomburger even as kids! Hindi naman nakakasawa lol. So when we went home last summer, I made sure hubby would get them from the original branch, dyan sa Tagaytay.

I LURVE mushrooms - they are perhaps my favorite thing (besides ice cream). I'm sitting here eating microwaved taquitos wandering why I'm not eating an oyster mushroom omelette instead!
