My Blooming Breakfast!….Blooming Garlic Mushroom Bread

Blooming Garlic Mushroom Bread

Blooming Garlic Mushroom Bread

Given that I am almost always out of the house almost twice a week, the truth is, if you could give me just the hint of an excuse or  an inkling of a reason, I will most probably find an excuse to politely and quietly back out of social plans that involve more than four people I don’t know. Nope, I am most certainly not anti-social but I have this thing about putting myself in social situations where I will, no doubt, be awkward and weird.

One excuse is that I could say, I have this bread that is  full of butter, garlic, mushrooms and cheese, cheese, cheese perfectly blooming in the oven which I know is not an excuse at all and it would just make me sound more awkward and weird…hah!

Let me think about a few rock solid excuses….

One, traffic and my location. Most of those social plans that come up happens in the busiest city in the metro which is a place I am 2 hours away from whether I take a car or the train.

Two, night time. I don’t like going home alone at 10 – 11pm. So unless it’s a Saturday or Sunday night and I can bring a friend with me. It’s an absolute no.

Three, Fall is happening and I am neck- deep in my things-to-do and things-to-buy and my things-to-cook list…This makes me wish there’s 100 hours each day for me to be able to finish all of them.

I am just lucky I made it through Halloween. Sigh.

This is why I need something blooming to cheer me up, specially on a Sunday morning.

No, flowers won’t do. It has to be something I could eat and share with somebody….


Blooming Garlic Mushroom Bread

Blooming Bread is definitely called for this morning. Sorry, it wasn’t a full bloom, my first time to try it.

  2. Heat butter and garlic in a non-stick skillet, until butter is completely infused with the flavor of garlic. Add mushroom and sauté for a few minutes.
  3. In a small bowl, combine the three kinds cheese and mix well. Carefully insert these cheese mixture in between the cuts in your bread. Make sure to tuck it in.
  4. Top it with the mushroom-garlic-butter mixture, make sure you drizzle all the butter in the pan.

  1. It looks so delicious! And of course, I believe it too 🙂 I’ll give a try to make this one day.

  2. I’m not always comfortable in roomsful of people I don’t know.  This little voice goes off in my head that says, “why are you here and why would anyone want to talk to you?”  and then I start talking and I’m fine. 

    I wouldn’t go out at all if I had this bread though.

  3. What a fantastic way to start the day! I will be trying this comforting recipe VERY soon!!


  4. Looks delicious…mushrooms and garlic…and lot of cheese…yum!

  6. Oh my gosh Peachy! This looks so good! I’m going to be brave and try it out this weekend, and hopefully, I don’t blow it up, literally! 😛

    I’m glad I live in a small town and you can get to anywhere within 15 minutes, 20 minutes medium traffic, 45 minutes really heavy traffic, but that rarely happens :P, it makes going to social events less of a hassle and more fun. 😀

  7. This looks so inviting I think I’m going to try and make one myself just to have a taste.

  8. This is BEAUTIFUL!!! I bet it is addictive – I think I will make this for the Thanksgiving table!!
