We headed out on a nice warm autumn morning to find some wild mushrooms. As we had little experience on foraging fungi, we brought along Fabio, who spent most of his childhood foraging with his father.
Due to certain Covid-19 restrictions, we couldn’t enter the Newlands forest park, so settled for some urban foraging instead. We managed to find a few porcini mushrooms, with which we made the following brunch!
Wild foraged porcini mushrooms sliced
Streaky bacon diced (optional)
2 cloves of garlic diced
Fresh chopped parsley
6 free-range eggs
Parmesan cheese grated
Sourdough bread toasted
On a high heat use, a heavy pan and add butter and bring to a slight bubble. Add the bacon and fry until crispy. Add the mushrooms to the bacon fat and fry until soft.
Add the garlic, and parsley, and fry until garlic is soft. Add the tomatoes and fry until blistered.
Beat the eggs with some salt and pepper, and add to a non-stick pan with a little olive oil. Fry until soft, but not runny, or to your liking.
Place the mushroom and bacon mix on freshly toasted sourdough bread, cover with scrambled egg and grate some fresh parmesan cheese on top.
