  • About


  • mushrooms
  • butter
  • top of the milk salt
  • pepper


Clean and slice the mushrooms, melt the butter in a frying pan and fry them gently. As they absorb the butter, add a saucerful of creamy milk. Continue cooking for about ten minutes; they will then take more milk. This, rather than being absorbed, will thicken a little, leaving the mushrooms in a delicate creamy sauce. Add salt and pepper to taste and eat at once with egg and bacon or toast.
