Oyster Mushroom Grilled Cheese
1. Melt 2 tablespoons butter and olive oil in large skillet over medium-high heat. Add shallots and brown sugar and cook, stirring, until softened and beginning to brown, about 5 minutes. Add mushrooms and thyme and cook, stirring, until mushrooms are browned, about 7 minutes. Stir in sherry vinegar and cook an additional 1 minute. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Transfer mushroom mixture to plate and wipe out skillet.
2. Spread 1 side of each slice of bread with remaining 4 tablespoons butter and flip bread slices over. Distribute cheese evenly over 8 slices bread. Divide mushroom mixture among 4 slices of cheese-topped bread, then, top with remaining 4 slices and press down gently with hands. (Butter should be on exterior of sandwiches).
3. Cook sandwiches in 2 batches over medium heat until crisp and golden on both sides, pressing down with spatula, about 4 minutes per side. Transfer sandwiches to cutting board and let rest 3 minutes. Cut on the diagonal and serve immediately.

To Sauté: Place in dry, hot pan over medium heat. After sweating out the water, add butter or oil and spices. Cook on medium high for several minutes on each side until browned.
To Roast: Coat caps and stems with olive oil and seasonings. Roast in oven at 400 degrees for 8-10 minutes or until crunchy.
