Yield: 2

Ingredients

3 ½ ounces fresh chèvre
½ cup grated Parmesan
1 tablespoon minced parsley
1 ½ teaspoons minced chives
Grated zest from half a lemon
1 tablespoon butter
⅛ teaspoon dried chili flakes
3 ounces crimini, cleaned and trimmed, cut in halves or quarters, depending on size
3 ounces king oyster mushrooms, cleaned and trimmed, sliced lengthwise
3 ounces shiitake mushrooms, cleaned and trimmed, torn into rough pieces
Kosher salt and freshly-ground black pepper
1 medium shallot, minced
½ teaspoon fresh thyme leaves (about 3 sprigs worth, picked from their stems)
2 medium buns, split
½ cup loosely packed arugula leaves
Extra-virgin olive oil for drizzling
Juice from half a lemon

Directions

In a small bowl, combine the chèvre, all but 2 tablespoons of the Parmesan, the herbs and lemon zest. Mix lightly. Set aside.

In a large cast iron skillet over medium heat, melt the butter. Once the butter has bubbled, sprinkle in the dried chili, raise the heat to medium-high and add the mushrooms. Cook for 2 minutes, stirring often, then add the shallot and season with salt and lots of black pepper. Continue to sauté until the mushrooms are well-browned and most of their moisture has evaporated, around 6 minutes more. Remove from the heat, check for seasoning, and stir in the thyme. Set aside.

Divide the cheese mixture over the bottom halves of the buns. Sprinkle the reserved Parmesan over top, then place the open sandwiches (both the cheese sides and plain sides) under a hot broiler until the cheese is golden and the bread is toasted.

Meanwhile, toss the arugula with a pour of olive oil, some lemon juice and season with salt and pepper.

When the sandwiches are ready, pile half the mushrooms on one cheese toast. Drizzle over a few drops of olive oil, and lemon juice, if desired. Top with the arugula and the top piece of bread, pressing down lightly. Repeat with the second sandwich. Eat immediately.
