Cut mushrooms into slices. Add to a pan with a knob of butter. Fry until deep brown.
Add a tablespoon of butter into the pan. Add a small handful of thyme leaves, rosemary leaves, 1 crushed garlic clove and a teaspoon of chilli flakes. Mix everything together.
Cook until the mushrooms are very dark and caramelised. Remove them from the pan. Leave the pan on the hob with the heat off. You’re going to use it in a bit.
Slice up your sourdough so you have 8 big slices. Spread butter onto 4 of them. Grate a thick layer of cheddar onto each slice. Add your mushrooms. Grate over another layer of cheese. Butter your remaining 4 slices and place them on top of the sandwiches.
Add a tablespoon of butter to your mushroom pan. Once melted, add in your sandwiches. Give them a press. Cook for 4 minutes. Remove the toastie and add some more butter to the pan. Cook the other side of the toastie for another 4 minutes.
Once the toasties are golden brown and crunchy on the outside, remove from the heat, chop them up and tuck in!
