Melt 50g butter in a pan and gently fry the onion until softened. Add the garlic and thyme and fry for 1 min more. Tip in all the mushrooms and toss to coat in the butter. Cook on a high heat for 5-8 mins until soft. Pour over the brandy and lemon juice, then cook for 2-3 mins more or until all the liquid has evaporated. Turn off the heat, add the herbs and seasoning, then allow to cool.
Once cooled, remove the thyme. Mix the mushrooms with the remaining butter, then divide between 4 ramekins. Chill until firm, or for up to 2 days, then serve a ramekin, topped with a thyme sprig, between 2 to share with toasted bread and dressed salad leaves.
