  1. Turn your grill on to high to give it a chance to heat. Put three quarters of the butter in your largest frying pan and heat until melted. Take each mushroom and pull away the stalk then put the mushrooms in the buttery pan, flat side down. Scatter round the stalks, tearing them as you go to break them up a little. Cook over a high heat for 5 minutes, turning the mushrooms over half way through, until they are golden and juicy.

  2. Meanwhile toast the bread in a toaster or under the grill and when ready, spread with the remaining butter.

  3. Take the mushrooms from the pan (leave the stalks behind) and put them cup side up in a shallow heatproof dish. Now tip the spinach into the pan with the stalks and stir it around in the buttery juices for about a minute, just until it wilts. Pile the mixture onto the mushrooms, cover the spinach with a slice of cheddar and flash under the grill until the cheese just melts. Serve each mushroom on a slice of the buttered toast and spoon over the juices.

Broke up the mushrooms so they would be cooked, added a hint of pesto as well as using butter and herbs and crushed garlic. Amazing!

I didn't have the toast but added grilled tomatoes.

I broke the mushrooms up a bit to help them to brown. I didn't have garlic butter, or spinach, so I spread the toast with Boursin, piled the mushrooms on top and covered with Red Leicester cheese, and stuck the whole lot under the grill. Delicious lunch.

As a main meal; tried stuffing with layer of ardennes pate, then layer of crispy bacon which I fried with onion, garlic and rosemary; topped with mature cheddar cheese! Served with toasted ciabatta to soak up the delicious juices!

Great as a main meal with garlic mash, without the toast.
