Penny bun mushroom. It's good if you roast it. Peel and wash it, then put them on the table and let it drain, then add some salt, cut the stem and add some black pepper. Once salted, whip some egg whites and stuff it into the mushroom, add some salt, put it on a skewer, add some hot butter and roast it until the egg is cooked, once done, serve it when hot. This is how we prepare this, but I've seen other nations prepare its stem in a pate; you can cook it with tree oil for fasting men.
