Mushrooms With Port and Stilton Sauce in a Bread Bowl

“This recipe is adapted from the October 1991 issue of Gourmet magazine. This makes a great appetizer course or a lunch or late supper with a crisp green salad. I suggest simply using plain old button mushrooms for this due to the distinct strong flavours you acheive from the sauce. You will need to flame the port in this recipe.”

Directions

  1. In a skillet, heat 2 tablespoons of the butter over moderately high heat until the foam subsides. Saute the mushrooms in the melted butter, stirring, until they are golden and season them with salt and pepper.
  2. Heat the Port ( You are going to ignite it and heating it before hand is necessary for it to ignite.) Add the heated Port to the skillet and ignite it, shaking the skillet gently until the flames go out.
  3. Stir in the Stilton and the heavy cream and cook the mixture over moderate heat, stirring, until the cheese is melted.
  4. Brush the insides of the hollowed out rolls with the remaining melted butter. Toast the rolls on a baking sheet under a preheated broiler, about 4 inches from the heat until they are golden.
  5. Divide the mushroom mixture between the rolls and garnish with chopped parsley.
