I get bored in the kitchen preparing the same food over and over again every day, so sometimes, I tend to experiment a little bit. I wanted to have some minced meat pie, but since my oven went KABOOM-ed on me, I had no choice but to settle for something simpler, something that I can cook over the stove instead…. like French toast, but with simple minced meat with mushroom as the filling.
Here’s how I do it:
For the filling
1/2 can of button mushrooms (or if you have, you can use fresh button mushrooms)- sliced
100 grams of minced meat
Salt and black pepper to taste
To prepare for the filling, all you need to do is sautÃ© the sliced button mushrooms in a frying pan along with minced meat til it’s fully cooked. Season with black pepper and salt, and put aside while preparing for the French toasts.
To prepare the French toasts:
4 slices of stale bread
2 eggs, lightly beaten
1 tablespoon of mayonnaise
Butter for frying
Crack the eggs into a bowl and beat them up lightly with 1 tablespoon of mayonnaise. Cut the stale bread and dip them in the eggs mixture. (Note: if you’re on a diet or something, use salt and pepper to taste instead of mayonnaise)
Heat up the frying pan and fry the bread til golden brown. Take out, and sandwich the fillings accordingly in between the breads. Drizzle generously with mayonnaise or tomato ketchup and serve while piping hot.
Cleffairy: This is nothing gourmet, but it satisfied my cravings for minced meat pies. Our world would be a happier place to live in if people make do with what they have instead of grumbling about things they cannot fix, no?
