|Don't eat these mushrooms, buy them from a shop.|
We now have pre-made croutons available to us, so a quick fix is available. But in my opinion you cannot beat home made croutons.
2 pints of white stock
1 Spanish onion
1 dessertspoonful of flour
A little milk
A little cream
salt and pepper
Croutons of fried bread.
1. Wash the mushrooms and chop them up. Chop up the onion finely then bring the stock to the boil.
2. Add the mushroom and onion then boil for half an hour.
3. Pass all through a tammy or a fine hair sieve. Add a dessertspoonful of flour mixed into a smooth paste with a little milk and salt and pepper to taste.
4. Boil up again, and just before serving remove teh soup from the fire and add the yolks of two eggs beaten up in a little cream. Do not let the soup boil after adding the eggs, just enough to thicken the soup.
Serve with croutons.
