This makes a tasty and different breakfast, brunch or snack. Sweet soy sauce, also called ketjap manis should be available in most large stores or Asian stores. If you can't find it, just use dark soy sauce mixed with a little clear, runny honey instead.

Luscious and yummy all in one bite! This is a GREAT breakfast. I made the mushrooms up the night before, so breakfast was a slap and a dash. I used the soy sauce and honey...but think it's interesting that this ingredient LOOKS like the way you'd spell KETCHUP if you were being totally phonetic! Hmmm.... Anyway, I think these would be neat to serve at a tea party too, for one of the savories. *ZWT 6 Team "Ya Ya Cookerhood" Ya Yas Rock!*
- 1 1⁄2 ounces butter, plus a llittle extra for spreading
- 1 small garlic clove, finely chopped
- 12 ounces small mushrooms, wiped clean and halved
- 1⁄2 ciabatta, loaf cut into thick slices
- 2 tablespoons ketjap manis (or 2 tbs dark soy sauce and 1 tsp honey)
- salt and pepper
- chives, chopped for garnish (optional)
Directions See How It's Made
- Melt the butter in a large frying pan. Add the garlic and mushrooms and stir fry over a high heat for 2-3 minutes.
- Meanwhile, toast 6 slices of the ciabatta bread.
- Add the ketjap manis to the mushrooms and toss over a high heat for a few seconds more - it should caramelize instantly. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
- Put the toast onto warmed plates, and spread with a little butter if you wish. Spoon on the mushrooms and sprinkle over the chives if using.
- Serve immediately.
