Editor's note: Each Saturday morning we bring you a Sunday Brunch recipe. Why on Saturday? So you have time to shop and prepare for tomorrow.

Like any great brunch, this dish comes together quickly with few ingredients that won't be in the pantry. Mushrooms on toast are a classic dreary morning breakfast, made better by a pot of hot black tea and a newspaper. Although button mushrooms are a great easy standard, there are so many fantastic mushrooms to choose from it can be hard to stick with just one. Try a variety of different mushrooms to give this brunch standard a new twist.

Other than switching out the mushrooms, a few other ingredients that can be a good alteration to this basic recipe are red or white wine (deglaze before you add the stock), any sort of fresh herb (outside of the parsley garnish) or my personal favorite—a fried egg on top.
