Yield: Yields about 3/4 cup.
Duxelles is a mixture of finely chopped mushrooms, shallots, and sometimes herbs that is cooked slowly in butter until it becomes thick. The Duxelles here is used as a filling for Potato Pancakes (Latkes).
Mushrooms are 90% water; the long, slow cooking of duxelles will evaporate the water and concentrate the mushroom flavor. Save any leftover duxelles in the freezer—it’s great in omelets, stuffed under the skin of a roasted chicken, or stuffed in baby squash or cherry tomatoes.
