Butter cut with olive oil. The butter's there for flavour and the  
olive oil is there to raise the cooking temperature. If you make it a  
bacon, egg and mushroom butty, you can skip the olive oil because  
you'll get the lard that's come out of the bacon.

Don't use too much oil though: you're not deep-frying the stuff, and  
the mushrooms will soak up what's there, so the more you put in, the  
more you'll be eating.

I don't really see the point in sunflower oil - all the calories of  
butter but fuck all taste.

I also don't see the point in various spreads. It's all hydrogenated  
vegetable oil dyed yellow, so it's saturated fat anyway. Just because  
they put two drops of olive oil into a 2kg tub doesn't magically make  
it healthy. (I exaggerate slightly, but go and look at the  
percentages in the ingredients list of the various "healthy" spreads  
and draw your own conclusions.)
