Creamed Mushrooms Flambe (1941)

  • 1 lb mushrooms, sliced
  • 1 medium-sized onion, minced
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 1 cup cream
  • 1/3 brandy
  • 1/3 cup Sherry
  • Salt and pepper
Saute mushrooms and onion in butter until tender, about 10 minutes.  Add sherry and simmer for 3 minutes.  

Pour in brandy, light it, and stir constantly until flames have died out.  Simmer very gently until only a small quantity of liquid remains.  

Add cream, season, and simmer, stirring occasionally, until thickened.  Serves 4.

(Origin - "The American Wine Cook Book" by Ted Hatch, with foreword by the Waldorf-Astoria Hotel, 1941.)
