Mushrooms Anyone ?

We never get tired of mushrooms, for breakfast, eggs, bacon and a hand full of small mushrooms all fried in butter. As a starter or light lunch, a large portabello mushroom, filled with pate and covered in grated cheese. Cook at 200c for 20 minutes on a baking sheet. Add the cheese after 15 minutes cooking. Serve with a mixed salad.

Or how about this great recipe, lovely as an appetizer, or as a side dish .... stuffed mushrooms are it.

  • 3 Tablespoons of butter,
  • 1 package button mushrooms, washed, dried, and stems removed
  • 3 cloves Garlic, Minced or 3-4 teaspoons of jarred minced garlic
  • salt
  • ¼ cup Flat-leaf Parsley, chopped, or 3-4 tablespoons of dried parsley
  • 4 whole Green Onions, chopped
  • 1 slice (wedge) Of Brie Cheese (or other cheese - but brie does work well.)


Melt butter in large skillet/pan. Add mushrooms and turn to coat in butter. Sprinkle lightly with salt. Brown for a couple of minutes, then remove mushrooms from pan and place in a baking dish.
In the same pan add garlic, parsley, and green onions. Sprinkle very lightly with salt. Stir and toss to coat for a few minutes. Remove from heat.
Carefully cut white rind off of brie wedge, then cut tiny pieces of brie to fit each mushroom. Press each piece of cheese into the inside of a mushroom.
Pour parsley garlic mixture over the top of mushrooms.
Put pan into a preheated 350 degree F oven for 15 minutes, or until brie is melted.

Original recipe idea if you want to give it a try.

All the best Jan

I ADORE mushrooms, but they don't always like me. I think it's the mold issue. Sometimes no issue, sometimes a little tummy sensitivity. But I'm crazy about all things mushroomy. :)

Thanks for your comment Gwen - what I love about mushrooms is they can be so versatile.

You're making my mouth water and it's only ten in the morning. I adore mushrooms but the rest of the family won't touch them. I love stuffed mushrooms but never thought of stuffing them with pate, I am so going to try that, it sounds delicious with the added cheese on top.
