ingredients

serves 4
1 1/2 lb (700g) mushrooms
3 oz (75 g) sweet-cured gammon rashers
1 medium onion
1/2 tablespoon virgin olive oil
2 tablespoons brandy
1 tablespoon plain flour
1/4 pint (150 ml) sour cream
Salt and freshly ground black pepper
2 oz (50 g) low-fat Cheddar cheese
1/2 oz (15 g) fresh wholemeal breadcrumbs
12 green stuffed olives
Sprigs of parsley for garnish

method

1. Wash the mushrooms and pat dry. Cut the gammon rashers into thin strips and roughly chop the onion.
Heat the oil in a flameproof casserole dish with a tightly fitting lid.

2. Add the gammon and onion and cook gently for 5 minutes until lightly browned. Pour in the brandy, heat for a few seconds, then, standing well clear, ignite with a match.

3. When the brandy flames have subsided, stir in the flour and sour cream. Heat the sauce gently for 5 minutes, stirring constantly. Do not allow it to boil.

4. Add the mushrooms and remove the casserole from the heat. Season to taste, then cover tightly with a lid. Bake in the Oven for 25-30 minutes, until the mushrooms are tender but not overcooked.

5. Remove from the Oven and uncover. Preheat the grill.

6. Grate the cheese, mix with the breadcrumbs and sprinkle over the mushrooms. Brown under a hot grill. Slice olives and chop parsley for the garnish.
