Serves one

-1/2 tablespoon butter
-2 teaspoon olive oil, divided
-1 cup assorted mushrooms, removed of woody stems and sliced into bite-sized pieces
-Pinch paprika
-Salt and pepper to taste
-2 slices Brioche bread
-1/2 teaspoon Dijon Mustard
-1/2 cup shredded Morel Mushroom with Onion and Chive Flavored Monterey Jack Cheese (or alternatively shredded Cheddar or Monterey Jack)


Melt butter together with 1 teaspoon olive oil over medium heat in a frying pan. Add mushrooms and saute 5-10 minutes until the mushrooms are soft and tender. Add paprika and season with salt and pepper to taste.

Spread one slice of bread with mustard and top with mushrooms and shredded cheese. Place remaining slice of bread on top.
