Redice heat, cover and let simmer 15 minutes, turning patties after 10 minutes. If the liquid boils off, add another 1/4 cup water. Aadd the cream and remaining salt and pepper. Cover and simmer over very low heat an additional 10 minutes or longer – until patties are cooked through. Turn patties to coat with sauce, then pour any remaining sauce and mushrooms over to serve. Personal note: I find that a dash of nutmeg in the cream brings out the flavor better.
