Funnel chanterelle toast is a super tasty and not least easy dish to make. Funnel chanterelles have a deep, unique taste of umami and mushrooms, and go really well with butter, heavy cream and bread.
Funnel chanterelles can be found in autumn in deciduous and coniferous forests. They love damp moss, and once you’ve found the first one, there are often lots of them around. Funnel chanterelles are also known as winter chanterelles or yellow foot.
Funnel chanterelle toast can be eaten as an appetizer, lunch or whenever you fancy a snack.
Funnel Chanterelle Toast
- 200 grams (7 oz) funnel chanterelles

- ½ onion, finely chopped
- ½ deciliter (¼ cup) heavy cream
- Salt and pepper

- Tear the funnel chanterelles into two from the cap and downwards (use your hands) and check each mushroom for dirt or insects. Funnel mushrooms are generally very clean mushrooms.

- When the liquid has evaporated, turn down the heat and add the heavy cream.
