Place a slice of fried bread on each plate. Tip: cut a hole in the middle of each slice with a cutter. You can then fill it with mushrooms more easily.

Stage 8

Divide the mushrooms in their cream sauce between the plates and serve immediately.

Remarks

As you can see from the photos, I used a mixture of wild mushrooms here, but morels are by far the best for this.

And to drink?

A dry white wine, the same as you have used in the recipe. I suggest a wine from the Jura, a Chardonnay or a Chardonnay-Savagnin blend.
