Method

Season the Tournedos and shallow fry in butter.

Arrange each on a round Croûton of bread fried in butter. Surround with bouquets of morels and large dice of potatoes both fried in butter, and lardons of streaky bacon, blanched and then fried brown in butter.

Deglaze the pan with a little good veal stock, pass through a fine strainer, shake in a little butter to thicken and enrich it and serve separately with the Tournedos.
