Coddled mushroom breakfast egg

cod·dle/ˈkädl/

Verb: Treat in an indulgent or overprotective way: “I was coddled and cosseted”.

1 mushroom, I tablespoon of butter, 1/2 clove garlic crushed, salt and pepper. Top with parsley.

De-stalk the mushroom and spread with garlicy butter. Fit it snugly in a ceramic pot, crack an egg on top and place in a hot oven for about 8 minutes. When ready scoop out onto sour-dough toast, or eat it straight from the pot in its own  buttery juices.  Comfort food for an unseasonably cold and drizzly summer morning.
