October – Mushrooms on Toast
From page 267 of The New English Table.
An ideal supper dish that can be grand or humble, depending on the mushrooms you use.
For 2 people, butter or brush with oil 4 slices of sourdough bread (or the Wild Yeast Bread on p436 of The New English Table) and toast them in a flat, heavy-bottomed pan or in the oven until crisp and golden. Meanwhile, fry about 350g roughly chopped mushrooms in butter or olive oil until soft and browned in places.
Mix with plenty of parsley or chervil, or even watercress leaves, and pile on to one slice of the toast per person – place the other on top. Tabasco and Worcestershire sauce on the table.
