Last Saturday I found fresh forest chanterelles on a local farmers market. They are not cheap, they cost 60 PLN per 1 kg, which is more than 15 USD. However they are sooo good, that I couldn’t resist:)
I had some for delicious scramble eggs for breakfast.
For dinner I cooked cream sauce, which I served with grilled turkey breast, young potatoes and mizeria (cucumber salad). However you can have any nice piece of grilled or fried meat with chanterelle sauce: pork chop, beef steak or pork tenderloin. If you prefer to stick with veggie, potato dumplings, crepe and pasta would go very well with this sauce.
- 150 g/ 0,35 lb chanterelles (brushed clean)
- 1 tbs butter
- 1 onion
- 3/4 cup sweet cream
- salt and pepper
Melt the butter in the sauce pan. Saute thinly chopped onion until tender.
Cut bigger chanterelles, leaving smaller mushrooms uncut, add to the pan.
After a couple of minutes add sweet cream. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Reduce the heat to minimum and cook for 7 minutes, stirring from time to time. Cream will get thicker and tastes will mix.
