Mushroom Casserole

Mushroom Casserole
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.

3 pounds fresh mushrooms, cleaned, trimmed, and sliced
1 pound sliced leeks
sea salt & freshly ground black pepper
2 tablespoons chopped flat leaf parsley
8 ounces butter
8 ounces heavy cream
8 ounces seasoned dry bread crumbs



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.
