Breakfast and Brunch / Snacks / Vegetarian

Preparation Time:
Cooking Time:
4 portions
Metric Imperial


  • 1 lb mushrooms, sliced
  • 2 tbsp butter
  • 2 tbsp canola oil
  • 2 gray shallots, chopped
  • 5 cloves garlic, chopped
  • 1 oz cognac
  • ¼ cup 35% thickened cream
  • 1 tbsp fresh rosemary, chopped
  • 1 tbsp fresh thyme, chopped
  • 3 tbsp maple syrup (preferably amber syrup, for its rich flavour)
  • 4 thick slices of crusty bread
  • 1 cup strong cheddar, grated
  • Salt and freshly-ground pepper, to taste


  1. In a skillet over high heat, sauté the chanterelles in the oil and butter for 3 minutes, without over-stirring to brown them well. Add the shallots, garlic, and salt and pepper, and cook for another minute.
  2. Take the pan off the heat and deglaze with the cognac. Add the cream and herbs, and cook 2 minutes over low heat or until the cooking juices are reduced. Stir in the maple syrup. Adjust the seasoning and set aside.
  3. Toast the 4 slices of bread.
  4. Put the bread on a baking sheet and top each slice with the chanterelle mixture and the grated cheese. Broil until well-browned and serve immediately.

The classification of maple syrup is based on its colour – which changes subtly throughout the spring harvest – and its flavour profile.
