Yesterday (june 25th) I saw something similar being cooked up by Mary Berry, but a much more posh version πŸ˜‰

My version is easier on the wallet and I also snuck in some peas for the color and taste of course.

125-150grams of button mushrooms

2-cloves of garlic

100grams of (frozen) peas

1 onion halved and sliced

150grams of smoked bacon lardons

Butter for the pan

1 tablespoon of (frozen) parsley, chopped

100ml of cooking cream or double cream

Melt butter in a pan and add the onions and garlic, leave to soften. When translucent add the paprika powder, and pepper and chilli, hold the salt until the end.

Add the bacon lardons to the onions and cook for about 2-3 minutes, then add the mushrooms and let them brown on a high heat for about 5 minutes.

Add the cream and the peas and heat through for a few minutes, then add the parsley and season with salt if needed.

The bacon is usually very salty, so I add salt last if needed.

Slice a ciabatta bun in half and place on two plates, spoon over the mushroom mix and serve as a starter or lunch.

I don’t remember if Mary Berry used lemon juice, but you could add some to cut through the fattiness of the cream if you like
