    Serves: 2 

    • 1 shallot or 2 spring onions, thinly sliced
    • 110g (4 oz) finely chopped mushrooms
    • 2 tablespoons butter or margarine
    • 1 tablespoon plain flour
    • 2 tablespoons grated Cheddar cheese, extra to garnish
    • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
    • salt and white pepper, to taste

    Prep:10min  ›  Cook:6min  ›  Ready in:16min 

    1. In a small frying pan soften the onions and mushrooms in the butter for about 2 minutes but don't let them brown.
    2. Add the flour and stir to cook out the flour for about 1 minute. Add the mushrooms, cheese and lemon juice, and seasoning then stir in slowly for 2 minutes.
    3. Put the mixture into ramekins and sprinkle with cheese. Put the ramekins under a hot grill until the cheese bubbles, about 30 seconds to 1 minute. Remove from the heat and serve.


    Use as a spread, pate or great filler for baked potatoes. Served with a lemon quarter this is a cracking starter at a dinner party. Don't use 'fancy' mushrooms. You don't need to but make sure you cut your mushrooms as small as possible.
