    12 servings

Ingredients

  • 3/4 pound fresh mushrooms, sliced
  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup chicken broth
  • 1 cup half-and-half cream
  • 2 tablespoons sherry or additional chicken broth
  • 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
  • 1/2 teaspoon lemon juice
  • SPINACH ROLL:
  • 1/2 cup dry bread crumbs
  • 3 packages (10 ounces each) frozen chopped spinach, thawed and squeezed dry
  • 6 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 4 large eggs, separated, room temperature
  • 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese

Directions

  • In a large skillet, saute mushrooms in butter for 2-3 minutes. Stir in flour until blended; cook 2-3 minutes longer or until liquid is absorbed. Gradually stir in broth and cream. Bring to a boil. Remove from the heat; stir in the sherry or additional broth, mustard and lemon juice. Cool for 15 minutes.
  • Grease and line a 15x10x1-in. baking pan with parchment; grease the paper. Sprinkle with bread crumbs; set aside. In a large bowl, combine spinach, butter, salt, pepper, nutmeg and egg yolks. In a small bowl, beat egg whites on high speed until stiff peaks form. Gradually fold into spinach mixture. Gently spoon over bread crumbs; press down lightly. Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese.
  • Bake at 350° for 12-15 minutes or until center springs back when lightly touched. Cover with a piece of greased foil; immediately invert pan onto foil. Gently peel away parchment.
  • Spread 1 cup mushroom sauce over spinach mixture to within 1 in. of edges. Roll up jelly-roll style, starting with a short side and peeling foil away while rolling. Cut into slices. Reheat remaining mushroom sauce; serve with spinach spirals.
