Lemon Mushroom and Mozzarella Toasts with Oregano Oil Drizzle

I believe it would be safe to say that you'd have to like mushrooms in order to savor this dish!

And happily, everyone one in my family adores mushrooms of any kind, and prepared almost any way.

There is something about the pan seared mushrooms and slabs of fresh mozzarella cheese perched upon a grilled slice of good sourdough ...

And sprinkled with coarse salt, freshly ground black pepper and finished with a drizzle of oregano oil and fresh lemon juice that is irresistible.

The good news is that it all goes together in a matter of moments ~ and it makes a wonderful first course, or a light lunch or dinner.  It's another brilliant combination from Donna Hay.

The Oregano Oil?
It could not be more simple to make ~ and it is also wonderful drizzled over potatoes, egg dishes, as well as chicken or fish.
