Main Recipe


delicious garlicky, lemony creamed mushrooms for those lazy weekend breakfasts when you are not constrained by the need to be out the front door as soon as possible. these creamed mushrooms could also be used as a topping for meatloaves, steaks, chops or steamed vegetables, or as a sauce for pasta. it also makes a tasty supper on nights when you get home too late to really feel like making or eating a full meal. i have no idea now where i got this recipe from originally. it’s been in my recipe files for years. my mother used to cook mushrooms like this when we'd been mushrooming, and she tells me that her english grandmother, who was from kent, used to make something similar.
