Thyme Mushrooms with Cheese 百里香奶酪蘑菇

What do you see in this dish?

A side-component to a Western-style dinner paired with a roast chicken entree?


How about Burger King's Swiss Mushrooms Burger? That was my favorite burger in Burger King when I was much younger.



I made this as a filling to my vegetarian wrap that also included egg-veggie scramble, lettuce and heirloom tomatoes. I love the wrap AND the mushrooms filling that was cooked to full flavors with green onions and thyme.

This is a very easy way of cooking mushrooms - that is why I put this together quickly using whatever ingredients I had on hand. Melting sliced cheese on top is because I wanted a slice of cheese in my wrap anyway, so why not melt it on top of the mushrooms.

3 bunches of green onions finely chopped
