The number of servings really depends on how big you cut the bread and how full you like the tartlets. The original recipe implies 12, and I don't have a small tartlet tin to compare - I got three from halving the recipe using a muffin tray!

  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 1 tbsp brown sugar
  • 250 g chestnut mushrooms, chopped
  • 1 garlic clove, crushed
  • thyme, to taste
  • butter (at room temperature for spreading)
  • 12 slices of thick white bread
  • 100 g strong cheese, grated
  1. Soften the onions in the oil (about 10 minutes), then add the sugar, thyme, and mushrooms. cook the mushrooms down.
  2. Add the garlic and fry for a minute or so.
  3. Cut 7-8 cm circles from the bread. Butter and place face down into the tray, creating a crater for the filling.
  4. Fill the tartlets with the mushroom mix.
  5. Sprinkle the cheese over the tops.
  6. Bake at 220°C for 10 to 15 minutes until the cheese has melted and started to brown. Serve while still warm.
