A mushroom so fat you'll need a knife..........
Shall we visit I Heart Cooking Club and see what they have going this week? Why not.
You know, in spite of the fact that I like the cookbook How to Cook Everything, the fact that everything I have prepared from his book has produced very appealing and flavorful meals/appies, I also love how he writes....But....I just can't warm up to this guy.
It shouldn't matter, if you like the cookbook and the end result.
(shrugging shoulder) I guess I just felt a connection to Nigella. And I like Jamie Oliver.
Bittman may be the nicest guy in the world but...I dunno. Probably an article I read about him a few months back that disappointed me and it's just stuck.
Well...enough of my prattling........the theme this week is Potluck. So I revisited stuffed mushrooms. The ones I prepared as appetizers (back in April) were good. I wrote about them HERE. But these turned out better........
I took a few fat mushrooms, washed then, pulled the stem out....
Mixed about 4 tablespoons of softened cream cheese with minced garlic, 2 teaspoons Parmesan cheese and a pinch of chives.
Gently stuff the mushrooms and top with Panko breadcrumbs and sliver of butter. I mean a tiny infinitesimal hair-sized butter piece.
Place on a silpat or a lightly greased baking sheet and bake for about 15 minutes at400 F.
These made great little appies with a glass or two of Chardonnay. A nice padding for the stomach for the meal to come whilst tipping a wineglass.
