  1. Set the oven to 180°C/350°F/Gas 4. Melt half the butter in a frying pan and fry the onion gently for 2 mins. Add the mushrooms and cook for 30 seconds. Take off the heat and cool for 5 mins.
  2. Beat the egg in a small bowl or jug and add the cream, lemon rind and juice, seasoning and nutmeg. Tip in the mushroom mixture and then divide between the two dishes.
  3. To make the topping: Cream the rest of the butter with the garlic and then spread this over the slices of bread. Take off the crusts and cut each slice into 9 squares. Arrange them, overlapping on top of the mushrooms. Bake in the centre of the oven for 30 mins or put them under the grill to brown the bread. Garnish with parsley. Serve with salad.
