Amount Measure Ingredient -- Preparation Method
-------- ------------ --------------------------------
3/4 cup lukewarm water
1 egg -- lightly beaten
3 tbsp. unsalted butter -- softened
1 1/2 tsp. salt
2 tbsp. sugar
3 tbsp. dried milk
3 cups bread flour
1 1/2 tsp. instant yeast

3/4 lb. fresh mushrooms -- cleaned and chopped
1/2 oz. dried mushrooms (to 1 oz)*
2 shallots -- minced
2 cloves garlic -- minced
1/2 red bell pepper -- chopped
2 habanero peppers -- chopped finely
1 1/2 tbsp. unsalted butter
1 1/2 tbsp. olive oil
2 tbsp. unbleached all-purpose flour
1 tbsp. sweet paprika
1/3 cup fat-free sour cream
1 tsp. salt
1/4 cup vegetable broth

Set ABM for dough setting. Place ingredients in machine according to manufacturer directions. When dough is done, place in a greased bowl and let sit for 30 minutes, covered, until doubled in bulk. Remove
from bowl. Break into small pieces, about the size of a large walnut.

Preheat oven to 350F.

While dough is in machine, make filling: Melt the butter in skillet, then add oil. Heat medium. Add mushrooms to the skillet, stirring frequently. Add reconstituted dried mushrooms. Saute for a moment. Saute together for 6 minutes. Add shallots, garlic, bell peppers and habanero peppers. Cook for 2 minutes more.

Meanwhile, mix the flour and paprika into the sour cream until smooth and set aside. Add the reserved mushroom liquid and broth to the pan, and bring to a boil; reduce the heat to simmer, and add the sour cream mixture stirring well. Do not let this mixture boil. Adjust seasonings. Place in a bowl to
let it cool.

When filling is done, place it at the bottom of a 13x9" baking pan. Place dough balls in melted butter and then place them on top of the mushroom mixture. When finished, place pan in preheated 350F oven for 40-50 minutes until browned on top.

Serve as an appetizer by scooping each piece of bread out of the pan with some mushroom mixture on top and placing each one (2-3 on a plate) on plate, mushroom mixture atop. Sprinkle with a touch of paprika or chili powder and serve.

Notes: * To reconstitute mushrooms, place them in a small bowl. Cover with boiling water. Let sit for 30 minutes, covered. When soft, drain well, reserving soaking liquid. Press on mushrooms to extract all the liquid.
