6 servings

  • 6 baked small brioche rolls
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 3 tablespoons minced shallots
  • 2 teaspoons minced garlic
  • 2 pounds assorted fresh wild mushrooms, such as shiitake, oyster, woodear, chanterelle, or porcini, wiped clean, ends trimmed, and sliced
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1/2 cup Madeira
  • 1 cup veal stock, or beef stock
  • 1/4 cup heavy cream
  • 1/2 teaspoon fresh lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon chives
  • 1 teaspoon Essence, recipe follows
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh tarragon
  • 1 teaspoon chopped fresh parsley
  • 3 ounces enoki mushrooms, wiped clean
  • Essence (Emeril's Creole Seasoning):
  • 2 1/2 tablespoons paprika
  • 2 tablespoons salt
  • 2 tablespoons garlic powder
  • 1 tablespoon black pepper
  • 1 tablespoon onion powder
  • 1 tablespoon cayenne pepper
  • 1 tablespoon dried leaf oregano
  • 1 tablespoon dried thyme
  • Preheat the oven to 300 degrees F.

  • Place the brioche on a baking sheet and bake in the oven until warmed through but not hard, about 10 minutes. Remove from the oven and cut the top 1/3 from each brioche. Cover with aluminum foil to keep warm.

  • In a large skillet or saute pan, melt the butter and oil over medium-high heat. Add the shallots and garlic, and cook, stirring, until soft, 1 to 2 minutes. Add the mushrooms, salt, and pepper, and cook, stirring, until the mushrooms are wilted and start to give off their liquid, about 4 minutes. Add the Madeira and cook, stirring, until the liquid is reduced by half, about 3 minutes. Add the veal stock and bring to a boil. Simmer, stirring, until reduced by half and thickened, about 5 minutes. Add the cream and lemon juice, and cook until reduced and thickened, about 3 minutes. Add the chives, Essence, tarragon and parsley, stir well, and adjust the seasoning, to taste. Remove from the heat.

  • Place 1 brioche on each of 6 plates. Spoon the mushroom mixture into each brioche and top with the brioche lid. Arrange the enoki mushrooms decoratively on the plates and serve immediately.

Essence (Emeril's Creole Seasoning):
  • Combine all ingredients thoroughly and store in an airtight jar or container.

  • Yield: about 2/3 cup
