Outstanding! I topped a pan seared cod with this delicious butter and it was to die for. Tomorrow I'm going to try it on a toast. Thank you.

Rita, how do you keep coming up with these great concoctions? I made it exactly as described--loved that thyme-garlic combination along with the mushroom taste. I've already used this 2 different ways--to top a steak and as a spread on a sandwich with a bed of sauteed peppers & onions topped with a grilled chicken breast.
