What to do with a gift of porcini mushrooms, locally foraged? A recipe that would not change the flavour of the mushrooms in any way, but that would also be a full meal. Mrs BYF came up with a simple pie that hit the spot
Porcini Mushroom Pie
Pre heat the oven to 200 F
4 porcini mushrooms
25g butter for frying
Salt and pepper to taste
1 pack of defrosted filo pastry
100g melted butter to brush on pastry
Fry the mushrooms in the butter for a few minutes. Unroll the pastry, remove one sheet and brush with melted butter, layer with 5 sheets all brushed with butter. Heap the fried mushrooms in the centre and scrunch the pastry up around the mushrooms partially covering them.
Bake the pie until the pastry is crisp and golden and serve with a fresh garden salad.
ENJOY with glass f home made wine!
