Oven-fried Pompons for 4

Makes 4 servings

Notes: Pompon mushrooms are also known as pom pon blanc, lion's mane, bearded tooth, goat's beard, bear paw, and sea sponge. The shaggy ivory puffs taste like a cross between sweet fresh crab and delicate bone marrow.

 3/4 pound pompon mushrooms (see notes)
 6 tablespoons butter or margarine
  Salt and pepper

Discard dark or soft spots from mushrooms. Quickly swish mushrooms in cool water to rinse, then drain. Cut into 1/2- to 3/4-inch-thick slices. Melt butter in a 10- by 15-inch rimmed pan. Turn mushrooms over in butter; arrange side by side. Bake in a 400° oven about 10 minutes. Turn slices over; bake until browned, 10 to 15 minutes more. If making ahead, let cool in pan, then reheat in oven 4 to 5 minutes. Season with salt and pepper.
