Holiday Get-Togethers: Need an appetizer?

7 Nov

These are easy but give a façade of exquisite taste and refined choice for a dish brought to a cocktail party.

Stuffed Mushrooms

adapted from Paula Deen.

1/2 cup cream cheese

1/2 cup fresh parsley leaves, chopped

1/2 cup chopped onion (for a quick fix, use the equivalent in dried minced onion)

4 tablespoons Parmesan

1 t. salt

1/2 t. black pepper

1/2 t. garlic powder

20 white mushrooms caps

1/2 cup bread crumbs

Nonstick cooking spray

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F.

Combine the cream cheese, parsley, onion and Parmesan.

Season with salt, pepper, and garlic powder.

Stuff the mushroom caps with the mixture and top with bread crumbs.

Spray the tops with nonstick spray to help them brown.

Transfer to the oven and bake for about 20 minutes, or until the filling is hot and melted.

    May I ask cooking questions on your blog?

    I just made a coffee cake that required some all-purpose flour and some whole wheat flour. Why is that? Next time may I just use all whole wheat?

    You may ask questions and you may use more whole wheat flour – but expect to get a different texture.

    For each cup of white all-purpose flour, you can often substitute 1/2 cup of whole wheat flour plus 1/2 cup of all-purpose flour.

    Substituting equal amounts of whole wheat flour for all-purpose flour doesn’t work as well. The resulting product is likely to have less volume and a coarser texture.
