Mushroom Hoagies With Fried Onions and Cheese

Serves 4


1 1/2 pounds of oyster mushrooms, sliced into large pieces

2 large portobello mushroom caps, sliced

1/4 cup olive oil, plus extra for sauteing

Salt and pepper to taste

1 large onion, sliced thin

2 (12-inch) hoagie rolls

1/2 pound shredded provolone cheese or other cheese of choice


Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Mix mushrooms in bowl with oil and salt and pepper to taste.

Heat a frying pan, add a little oil, and saute onion until soft with brown edges.

Spread out mushrooms in one layer on a baking sheet. Roast mushrooms for 5 minutes or until tender.

Cut rolls to open out and spread mushrooms evenly over them. Top with the onions. Sprinkle the cheese on top and use either broiler or oven to melt cheese and slightly brown. Watch carefully to avoid burning.
