That would mean 10 eggs elf? Right? Fantastic buffet dish. Can't wait, would be good in individual ramikins too. As a starter I am picking. Wisp of salad on the plate to help with richness, maybe involving a radish or daicon, or a 'lish little lettuce leaf with yummies hidden in it. I still love iceburg, they have such dear little cups to roll so easily and eat with your fingers.
It is my fault this was sort of low jacked, sorry about that. (Lynnan has a wondefull recipe for garlic b&b puddings instead of yorkshire pudding).
Ellen, and I was taking the blame for the hi/low jacking -
YES, 10 eggs!!! lol Individual ramekins would be perfect also! They would create your own crispy outside part and prevent people from steeling ALL of it! lol I think this would be great with a salad of bitter greens, radishes, and other "biting" things - that should counteract the richness.

Ishbel, I must say that I am envious. I absolutely adore wild field mushrooms. I have had two this year. Yes, you heard me right, two whole field mushrooms, sporting that perfect white parasol with the pink gills underneath. I didn't have time to search for them and found the two growing in my yard. I quickly picked, cleaned, and fried them up. They are so deliscious.
I am happy for your good fortune. Enjoy you mushroom soup. It looks like a wonderful recipe.

Ishbel, I used to be a mushroom hater. But, as I grew up I began to eat them in things. A few years ago we had a chef come and make meals for my parents freezer and she would clean out their fridge/freezer of all the oddments and come up with the most amazing meals. She made a mushroom soup once with oyster mushrooms, shiitake and portobellos...it was to die for! I LOVED it. The only mushroom soup I had eaten to that point was the Campbells variety which frankly made me want to hurl. I am going to save this recipe and give it a try when I have been to the market and have some fresh mushrooms to try it with. THANKS!
