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.  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!

    My husband doesn’t like anything in this recipe – but I love EVERYTHING. Woe is this wife. Perhaps I need to make this just for myself one night. :D

    Yum! It’s nice to see a vegetarian stuffing for a change. Got used to seeing seafood stuffings :) looks like a great recipe that we’ll be trying!

    Oh my gosh! This combines three of my favorite foods, too bad my husband is not fond of any of these, especially mushrooms. I guess I will need to wait to have a party to make these. ;-)

    These look wonderful and their is a good sale on mushrooms this week. I wonder if they would freeze?

  13. Lyn says

    Do you think you have to bake the mushrooms first? I make stuffed mushrooms a lot and don’t prebake them, but maybe because of the cheese, it would be too melted by the time the mushrooms were tender enough.

    These look so good! I’ve been looking for an appetizer recipe for this weekend, I’m having friends over for dinner. This will be perfect! Thanks for the recipe!
