Creamed Mushrooms - recipe idea

These are a favorite and can be used either as a side dish with steak or roast and if put atop thin slices of toasted baguette, make a nice appetizer.
I use a package of plain white mushroom, butter,about a fourth of a cup of chopped shallots, salt and pepper and 1/2 a cup of heavy cream, and sometimes a shot of sherry.
I just remove the stems from the mushroom, and thick slice them, saute them in butter til they get a nice brown around the edges and then add the shallots, cook til they get soft, add the cream, bring to simmer, cook til it thickens then if so inclined add a little sherry..Serve as side dish or over toasted baguetts for an appetizer.
enjoy,
kadesma

Looks tasty, kadesma. I do something similar but use a sweet marsala instead of sherry. Like you said, good over toasted baguettes. I like to spread some goat cheese on the baguette and top it with the mushrooms. yum. I'll have to try this out with the sherry. Thanks kads!

A great little steak restaurant (unfortunately long gone) on Long Island, NY, used to offer a side dish like this with their steaks. The small button mushrooms were always left whole & there was absolute no cream - sour or otherwise. Just good fresh small button mushrooms braised in sherry/wine sauce with a few sauteed shallots. Absolutely delicious.

Breezy,
they sound delicious this way. That's whats so nice about posting recipes here. Everyone gathers around and offers ideas or on how they make theirs and we end up not only with our idea but with many more that are new for us to try.

YUM! I think I've made these before and added horseradish and served with toast points as an appetizer (too many years ago to fully remember )

Fully remember? For me that was long ago and far away
I love horseradish, will have to try adding some to this next time I make it. Thanks Elf.

A hit of fresh thyme at the end would also be nice in this dish.
