Chanterelle Gravy with Tarragon
At over $30 a pound, the chanterelle is a special occasion mushroom that has earned the nickname 'queen of the woods'. In this elegant pan gravy, aromatics like shallot and tarragon build flavor, butter and flour add texture, and the sweetness of Madeira balances the mushrooms' umami. Ladle it liberally on your turkey, then on toasted sandwich bread topped with a poached egg the day after.
Serve with roast turkey, dressing, and mashed potatoes, or, for a delicious savory breakfast, generously ladle some over thick slices of toasted sandwich bread, such as shokupan, and top with a poached egg and fresh tarragon.
