Snail-less Cargot with Brandy Butter Toast

Serves 4


200g portobellini mushrooms 4 cloves of garlic, minced A handful of parsley, roughly chopped A grating of fresh nutmeg 200g soft butter 7 tbsps brandy Toast to serve Snail shells


Cut the portobellini into snail size slices. In a pan heat the butter and garlic until it just starts to sizzle, then remove from the heat. Add the brandy and parsley and set aside. In a frying pan on a high heat, add a tbsp of oil and fry the mushrooms. After the mushrooms have released their liquid, add 2 tablespoon of the brandy butter and continue to fry. Flambeé if you wish. Toast the bread and serve the mushrooms in snail shells with more butter for spreading and dipping.
