I was just wondering whether anybody else was a fan of these mushrooms.

Just bought a load on the market and I am trying to decide how best to deal with them.
I am tempted to stuff them

Is that the best way to deal with them?

Nice with a filling of bacon & goats cheese

Do make sure you wash them well though or you might get a stray hair.

Sorry to disappoint Buttercup but there is nothing magical about flat caps

Do'h.

I thought this thread was about flat caps - a la last of the summer wine :-(

Last of the summer wine? huh? You have drained the bottle? there is none left to go with the flat caps?

Very disappointed and crestfallen

My old Mum trusted nothing picked by anyone else, 'you just do not know what else they have been doing' :-0

I actually prefer flat caps over buttons as they have better taste.

Ours are going to be cooked whole in a little melted butter & being served with Fillet steak, baked tomatoes fried onions & chips.

Errol - Tried various ways of cooking them but I prefer to stuff them.

yes I think they should always get stuffed.

Question is, what filling?

♥†۩ Carol   Paine ۩†♥

Are yours the big horse mushrooms?

Stuffed with crispy bacon, bread crumbs, crumbled goats cheese. Served with a rocket salad.

eRRolSheep

eRRolSheep Report 9 Mar 2013 16:13

massive
And the rocket is a great idea - adds a little something.

GeordiePride

GeordiePride Report 9 Mar 2013 16:23

Large ones I fry in butter then fill them with soft garlic and herb cheese together with crispy streaky bacon on a bed of mixed salad leaves.

Ok lose the rocket :-D :-D

When we were children, we used to go out early on Sunday mornings to pick them, on the Rother Marshes.

Mum would cook them in the oven with the bacon

Nothing spoils a flat mushroom than stuffing it,,,,,,it masks the natural flavour,,,,, clean, brush with a little oil &grill or bake in over for 10-15 mins,,,,.......serve with hot buttered toast,,,,,,,,,gorgus.....

Should it just be left as god intended then?
Sort of laid bare for all to see and admire?
I used to do them with soft cheese and chilli but I suppose that masked the delicacy
