8 slices bread of choice (ciabatta & sourdough work well)
2 shallots, finely sliced
2 cloves garlic, minced
250g baby button mushrooms, sliced in half
250g portabellini mushrooms, sliced
1 cup / 125g Gruyere cheese, grated
Salt and pepper, to taste
Fresh parsley, for serving
Preheat the braai.
Brush the slices of bread with a little olive oil and toast on the braai until golden brown on both sides. Set aside.
In a cast iron pan directly on the braai heat a drizzle of olive oil. Add the shallots and cook until tender and starting to caramelise. Add the garlic and cook for a minute.
Add the sliced mushrooms and cook stirring occasionally, until browned all over.
Season the mushrooms with salt and pepper and remove from the heat.
Place the toasted bread onto a baking tray.
Spoon the mushroom mixture onto each slice and sprinkle with cheese.
Place the tray on the braai and cover with the lid for 2 minutes or until the cheese has melted.
Transfer to a platter, sprinkle with fresh parsley and serve.
