- 1 lb chanterelle mushrooms
- 2 tbsp butter
- 2 tbsp canola oil
- 2 gray shallots, chopped
- 5 cloves garlic, chopped
- 1 oz cognac
- ¼ cup 35% cream
- 1 tbsp fresh rosemary, chopped
- 1 tbsp fresh thyme, chopped
- 3 tbsp maple syrup (preferably amber syrup, for its rich flavour)
- 4 thick slices of crusty bread
- 1 cup strong cheddar, grated
- Salt and freshly-ground pepper, to taste
- In a skillet over high heat, sauté the chanterelles in the oil and butter for 3 minutes, without over-stirring to brown them well. Add the shallots, garlic, and salt and pepper, and cook for another minute.
- Take the pan off the heat and deglaze with the cognac. Add the cream and herbs, and cook 2 minutes over low heat or until the cooking juices are reduced. Stir in the maple syrup. Adjust the seasoning and set aside.
- Toast the 4 slices of bread.
- Put the bread on a baking sheet and top each slice with the chanterelle mixture and the grated cheese. Broil until well-browned and serve immediately.
