Mushrooms on Toast
Put a pint of mushrooms into a stew pan with two ounces of butter rolled in flour, add a tea spoonful of salt, half a tea spoonful of white pepper, a blade of mace, powdered, and half a tea spoonful of grated lemon, stew till the butter is all absorbed then add as much white roux as will moisten the mushrooms, fry a slice of bread in butter to fit the dish and as soon as the mushrooms are tender serve them on the toast.
