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.

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.
