The rich mushroom flavor of this filling is heightened by the addition of Worcestershire sauce.
1 short French stick, about 25 cm/10in
10ml/2 tsp olive oil
250 g/9oz/ 3 cups chopped mushrooms quartered
10ml/2 tsp Worcestershire sauce
10ml/2 tsp lemon juice
30ml/2 tbsp skimmed milk
30ml/2 tbsp snipped fresh chives
salt and black pepper
snipped fresh chives, to garnish
Preheat the oven to 200 degree C/400 degree/Gas 6. Cut the French bread in half lengthways. Cut a scoop out of the soft middle of each, leaving a thick border all the way round.
Brush the bread with oil, place on a baking sheet and bake for about 6-8 minutes, until golden and crisp.
Place the mushrooms in a small saucepan with the Worcestershire sauce, lemon juice and milk. Simmer for about 5 minutes, or until most of the liquid is evaporated.
Remove from the heat, then add the chives and seasoning. Spoon into the bread croustades and serve hot, garnished with snipped chives.
