Goat Cheese & Sun-Dried Tomato Mushrooms Recipe

You don’t need to have a party to serve appetizers. In fact, I often make a variety of apps for supper. Finger food is fun and changes up the routine a little bit. In the May 2013 issue of Canadian Living there’s a feature called “There’s An App for That”. They had a few variations of stuffed mushrooms with one of them being Goat Cheese & Sun-Dried Tomato Mushrooms. Β I thought they looked interesting and weren’t like anything I’d served before. I usually make my stuffed mushrooms loaded with garlic and escargot.

The Goat Cheese & Sun-Dried Tomato Mushrooms were really simple to make and take about 40 minutes to prep and cook. They were yummy and perfect party food. John still prefers my escargots but I thought these were pretty darn good!
