The tostada is your typical Spanish breakfast; enjoyed in bars all over Spain you can see workers eating "tostada de tomate" most mornings. The humble tostada lends itself well so a whole variety of toppings. In this recipe we have used pigs kidneys (although lambs kidneys work equally well) and mixed wild mushrooms together with a little smoked paprika to create a hearty tostada that will keep you going until lunchtime!

Ingredients for Devilled Kidney and Wild Mushroom Tostada

Half stick of French bread
200g Mixed mushrooms, quartered
1 Pigs kidney (or 4 lambs kidneys)

1 Tablespoon plain flour
¼ Teaspoon hot smoked paprika
Cracked black pepper

How to make Devilled Kidney and Wild Mushroom Tostada

  • Slice the French stick horizontally and toast on both sides, leave aside to cool.

  • Reintroduce the mushrooms for 30 seconds and mix with the kidney.
