Toast Rolls with Mushrooms >> I call it Mushroom Rolls

by Maryam on November 3, 2010

I wish that the day changes its mind to be 48 hours instead of 24! I’ve heard a lot of people talked/taught/wrote on how you can save time buy planning ahead and organizing what you want to do! Well, I’ve did all that, but for some reasons my problem with time still there! Which I believe that it is a very normal thing! With a full time job(8 hours), and you know, as a human I need to spend another 8 hours sleeping. Even if I’m not that smart in calculations I can conclude that more than two thirds of my day are gone! It is gone without doing the stuff I really want to do (which is other than work), or at least having the time to do what I want/love/dream to do!

Now, when I consider the remaining third I discover I spend almost 2 hours in the gym .. another hour with family .. two for while trying new recipe and so on. And this what I call it a complete exhaustion! I admit my schedule is busy, although I’ve did everything that may help; then I realized that the only solution that really can help, is by adding more hours to the day. In other words expand the day and make it double in duration. I need more time .. I need time to read .. I need time to write .. I need time to watch TV … I need time to relax .. and I need time to go out with friends!

I need time to join a photography course .. I need to learn more about cooking techniques .. I need more time to plan for my future restaurant .. and I need time for myself! And you know what? I doubt that you don’t face the same problem as I do! don’t you?

Wait .. wait this wishful thinking have one condition! The working hours have to stay the same! And the sleeping hours as well!

Hi there! These look amazing and sound sooo good! What type of mushroom did you use? And how much?

Maryam November 4, 2010 at 5:58 am

Dear Jolie, I’m sorry that I forgot to mention the mushrooms ! you will need 17 medium sized mushrooms any kind!

Mandy November 4, 2010 at 3:29 pm

I have been OBSESSED with mushrooms as of late and looking for new dishes to use them in–this will be perfect! Thanks!

Karolina November 4, 2010 at 7:05 pm

these look awesome
what kind of spice mix?
and do you NEED a food processor to make this? is there an alternative?

Emily November 4, 2010 at 8:13 pm

These sound fantastic — did you deep fry them or shallow pan-fry them?

Maryam November 4, 2010 at 9:56 pm

Dear Karolina, the original recipe didn’t mention the contents of the spice mix, so I used the available spice mix I have in kitchen! However, you can use any spice mix which is usually added to savory dishes! Hope this helps … Enjoy

Maryam November 4, 2010 at 9:58 pm

Dear Emily, the original recipe called for deep fry! But if you wanna reduce the amount of oil then you can do as I did and shallow fry them .. Regards

Maryam November 5, 2010 at 10:22 am

These look great!

Susan November 10, 2010 at 8:49 pm

So is it the cream cheese dip that’s spread on the bread or just plain cream cheese?

Maryam November 10, 2010 at 10:14 pm

Dear Susan, just plain cream cheese will be sufficient!

Maryam

Very interesting recipe – I love the hint of curry! I will have to give it a try… perhaps at my next family gathering. Thanks for sharing.
