They even have furniture and decorations for the inside of each house. I was very tempted to buy one but could picture the destruction by a certain chow chow if the squirrels happened to choose the tree that I attached this to.
Magical Mushroom Sandwiches!!! First of all, ignore those stupid cherry tomatoes I placed on the plate to add some color. I was in such a hurry to take a pic of this sandwich before the filling oozed out that I knocked them around and didn't even notice them until I pulled up this pic. For me, this sandwich is the ultimate Fall treat. I rarely eat the food I make but I never pass this sandwich up. I only make these once a year and everyone anticipates their arrival.
I bought a bunch of fresh mushrooms at a market the other day. I new it was time for the sandwiches.
Then I diced them into a very fine dice and sauteed them in butter until they softened. Then I added some flour and stirred to cook off the floury taste. I added some sea salt and freshly cracked black pepper. When this mix becomes pasty you start to add whole milk.
I used 2 pounds of mushrooms because I was making sandwiches for my troops! You could easily cut this recipe in half. I used 2 sticks of butter and about 3/4 cup of flour. Then I added about 4 cups of whole milk.
Cook it stirring constantly until it starts to thicken. Remove it and let it cool. It will thicken even more.
I slice the bread and spread butter on the outside of two pieces. Then spread the inside with the mushroom mixture and grill them like a grilled cheese sandwich. These would be great with gruyere added but I am a purist and like them with just the mushroom mixture.
