    1. 1
      Heat half the butter in a large sacuepan and, keeping the high heat, saute half the mushrooms quickly for 3-4 minutes, until just tender and lightly browned. If they begin to make liquid, the butter is not hot enough -- the mushrooms should be dry.
    2. 2
      Remove mushrooms with a slotted spoon and set aside. Repeat with remaining butter and mushrooms.
    3. 3
      Remove 6 perfect mushroom slices and reserve for the garnish.
    4. 4
      Work the rest of the mushroom slices in a blender or food processor with the cream, sherry, and seasoning to taste.
    5. 5
      Spoon the pate mixture into 6 individual ramekins or pate dishes, level the tops, then press one of the reserved mushroom slices into the top of each.
    6. 6
      Cool, then chill the pates.
    7. 7
    8. 8
      Use the bread to make Melba toast. Toast the bread on both sides, then with a sharp knife cut through the bread to split each slice in half, making two thin pieces.
    9. 9
      Toast the uncooked sides under the broiler until crisp and brown -- the edges will curl up.
    10. 10
      Let the toast cool.
    11. 11
      The Melba toast will keep 2-3 days in an airtight tin.
