  • 5 ounces crumbled blue cheese

  • 3 chopped garlic cloves
  • 8 ounces mushrooms, halved and sliced

In a large cast iron pan heat 2-3 tablespoons olive oil and sauté onions over medium heat until caramelized. Add thyme leaves and cook a bit more. Set aside. Add more olive oil to the pan and sauté mushrooms until they are soft and have released their juices. Add garlic and sauté 1-2 minutes. Set aside. In the same pan over medium heat add butter and flour and cook for 2-3 minutes. Slowly whisk in milk and continue to cook 3-5 minutes until thickened. Turn off heat. Add cheese and mix together.

Top with bread crumbs and bake 20-30 minutes until browned on top.
