Wild Mushroom and Blue Cheese Toasties -- Fast Meal for Fall Nights



This quick supper recipe comes from award-winning chef Kevin Dundon, proprietor of Dunbrody House in County Wexford. It’s part of a collection of recipes from Kerrygold, the cheese and butter company that imports Cashel Blue from Ireland. The autumn flavor of mushrooms and the rich flavor of Cashel Blue make for a win-win supper or a nice addition to High Tea.
