This recipe makes an unusual side dish, or an
excellent vegetarian main course. It's rich and creamy,
with simple seasonings that don't interfere with the
wonderful taste of the mushrooms.
Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
Place a layer of mushrooms and leeks in a heavy casserole. Sprinkle with salt, pepper, and parsley.
Cover with one-fourth of the butter and the cream. Repeat the process three more times, then cover with the breadcrumbs.
Bake until the mushrooms are tender and the crest is golden brown, 20- 30 minutes.
