By popular demand... (and so I don't misplace it again!)
1/4 c butter
3 Tbs shallots
1/2 lb mushrooms
2 Tbs flour
1 c heavy cream
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp cayenne pepper
1 Tbs fresh parsley, chopped fine
1 1/2 Tbs chives, chopped fine
1/2 tsp lemon juice
2 Tbs Parmesan Cheese
24 pcs thin white bread (Stroeman) (1 loaf)
2 - 4 Tbs butter
Clean and chop mushrooms.
Melt 1/4 c butter in pan and add mushrooms, flour and cream. Cook until starting to thicken. Stir in herbs and chill.
Melt 2 Tbs butter and use pastry brush to coat cupcake or muffin pans.
Use a cookie cutter or glass to cut circles in bread (approx. 3 inch).
Fit into pans and brush with more butter. Bake in 400 oven until lightly browned - remove and cool.
Place "crusts" on a cookie sheet - spoon in some cooled mushroom mixture and sprinkle with Parm cheese. Bake 375 - 400 until mixture "melts" and begins to "bubble" a little. Delicious hot or cooled to room temp.
1.) The cayenne has quite a "kick" to it, use less if you don't like that.
2.) If you would like thinner "crusts", roll flat with a rolling pin before fitting into pans.
