According to the cookbook where this recipe was found, Grand Slam, the creative name of this recipe originates from the fact that the recipe was created by the wife of the architect who designed former Canadian Prime Minister Pierre Trudeau's bomb shelter!
- 24 slices very thin sliced white bread (low calorie bread is the perfect size)
- 2 tablespoons butter
- 3 tablespoons onions, very finely chopped
- 1⁄2 lb mushroom, very finely chopped
- 4 tablespoons butter
- 2 tablespoons flour
- 1 cup whipping cream
- 3 tablespoons dry white wine
- 1⁄2 teaspoon salt
- 1 pinch cayenne pepper
- 1 tablespoon finely chopped fresh parsley
- 1 1⁄2 tablespoons finely chopped green onions
- 3 tablespoons grated parmesan cheese
- First, make the croustades: generously butter small muffin tins, then cut a 3-inch round from each slice of bread and carefully fit into the muffin tins.
- Bake in preheated 400F oven for 10 minutes, or until rims are lightly browned; remove from tins and cool (may be frozen at this point).
- Now make filling.
- In a skillet, melt butter, then saute onions and mushrooms; stir and cook until all the moisture is evaporated.
- Sprinkle with flour, then stir thoroughly.
- Add cream, stirring constantly until it boils.
- Add wine, reduce heat, and simmer a few minutes longer.
- Remove from heat; stir in salt, cayenne, parsley and green onion.
- Transfer to a bowl; cover and refrigerate until needed.
- To serve, preheat oven to 350F; spoon mushroom filling into croustades; lightly sprinkle with parmesan and place on cookie sheet.
- Heat in oven for 10 minutes, then put briefly under the broiler.
I make these all the time, they are an excellent recipe! They do freeze well, I let mine sit out for about ten minutes before I put them in the oven (from the freezer). If you like mushrooms, I highly recommend this recipe!!
This sounds really good and easy. Thanks. I'll try it for an appetizer on New Year's Day.
I've been using this recipe for years and LOVE it. It also gets rave reviews when I've brought it to parties.
