roasted mushrooms bacon tarragon on toast

Best Sunday Brunch Recipes (37)

This is a lovely lazy weekend brunch-type dish. Roasting mushrooms intensifies their flavour and the salty bacon seasons them nicely. We love the aniseedy tang of tarragon, but you could just as well use a handful of watercress or chopped flat-leaf parsley. Just make sure you use a sturdy bread, such as a sourdough, that will soak up all the juices, without going too mushy.
