If you love mushrooms, then you will love this appetizer. These mushrooms are stuffed with garlic, capers, and butter, and are then roasted in the oven. Creamy brie cheese is added right before serving, along with a sprinkle of parsley. The result is a savoury mushroom that full of yummy flavour. I know that mushrooms caps aren’t usually roasted, but this method really helps to intensify the mushroom’s flavour.
I used large white mushrooms for this recipe because I wanted to have a lot of space to add the stuffing. However, this also means that they aren’t really bite-size. If you want something more dainty, go with a slightly smaller mushroom but be aware that they will shrink a bit in the oven.
This definitely isn’t a diet-friendly recipe. I used a LOT of butter because I didn’t want the mushrooms to dry out, and it adds flavour. Of course, you can cut it back a bit if you want to. The picture above shows you how much cheese I put in each cap, in case you need a visual reference.
So… what do you think? Will these make an appearance at your holiday party? Let me know in the comments below.
