1 pound mushrooms chopped
1/2 cup onion chopped
1 clove garlic minced
4 tablespoons butter or margarine
1 1/3 cups walnuts toasted
1 tablespoon sherry
1 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon thyme dried, crushed
1/8 teaspoon nutmeg ground
1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1/4 cup parsley finely chopped
Parsley sprigs
Unsalted crackers, whole wheat crackers, toast points or Melba toast


In a large skillet over medium-high heat, saute mushrooms, onion and garlic in 2 tablespoons of the butter or margarine until vegetables are very tender and most liquid is evaporated. Remove from heat and set aside.

Place walnuts in a food processor bowl. Cover and process with on-off bursts until coarsely chopped. Remove 1/3 cup of the nuts and set aside.

Add remaining 2 tablespoons butter or margarine to food processor. Cover and process until almost smooth. Add mushroom mixture, sherry, salt, thyme, nutmeg and cayenne pepper. Cover and process for 4 to 5 minutes or until light and fluffy. Add chopped parsley and process with on-off bursts until blended. Spoon into a crock or small ramekin. Cool, uncovered, for 15 minutes. Cover with plastic wrap and chill at least 1 hour.

To serve, gently press reserved nuts into top. Garnish with parsley sprigs. Serve with crackers, toast points or Melba toast.
