Is there anything better than a mountain of buttery mushrooms on a thick slab of sourdough toast? We think not, however, if you love your mushrooms, we’ve found the perfect excuse to unite with your fellow fungi fans in honouring them.

Saturday, October 15 is National Mushroom Day, reminding us to pay homage to the mighty mushrooms in our lives. Whether you’re a mushroom farmer, cafe owner, or simply a humble mushy admirer, Saturday is the day to shout your love of mushrooms to the rooftops and celebrate everything about them—from their mind-boggling health benefits to that unparalleled taste.

Share your most bomb mushroom on toast recipe with the hashtags #NationalMushroomDay, #MyMushroomToast, and #AustralianMushrooms—plus, any cooking tips and plans you have for the big day.
