  • 1 ½ (1 pound) loaves sliced white bread

  • 2 tablespoons butter

  • ½ pound fresh mushrooms, finely diced

  • ½ cup onion, finely diced

  • teaspoon ground cayenne pepper

  • 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice

  • ½ teaspoon salt

  • teaspoon ground black pepper

  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley

  • ½ cup half-and-half

  • 1 tablespoon all-purpose flour

  • ½ cup Parmesan cheese, grated


  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C).

  2. Use a small cookie cutter to cut rounds out of the bread. Press the rounds into ungreased mini muffin tins, and bake for 8 or 9 minutes until golden; keep a close watch on them, as they bake fast. Turn out bread cups to cool.

  3. Heat butter in a large skillet over medium heat. Stir in the mushrooms and onions, and cook until soft, about 8 minutes. Season with cayenne pepper, lemon juice, salt, pepper, and chopped parsley. Gradually stir in half-and-half, and sprinkle with a bit of flour until mixture gets thick.

  4. Fill bread cups with mushroom mixture, top each with a sprinkle of Parmesan, and place on a lightly greased baking sheet. Bake for 10 to 12 minutes.
