Grate the mushrooms, or cut them into small pieces.

Peel the eggs, and slice them into 12 wedges.

Drain the mushroom broth into another dish, and pour the soaked gelatin in it.

Stir well, and heat for 1 minute in a microwave, or heat until gelatin dissolves.
Stir well one more time.

Pour the mushroom broth – gelatin mix into 12 dishes, put a portion of ground mushrooms and egg slice in every dish, and place in a refrigerator (not freezer).
