Heat oil and butter in a large skillet until butter foams. Add mushrooms and cook until lightly golden. Add garlic and cook and stir for one minute. Add cream and cook until slightly thickened, about 5 minutes. Add parsley and stir briefly. Season to taste with salt and a couple of grinds of black pepper. Cool slightly (can be made ahead) and mound on toasts. Sprinkle with cheese and run under a preheated broiler until cheese is melted and all is bubbly and beginning to brown. Serve immediately.
