|A Platter of Portobello Mushroom Appetizers|
|I cut slices of French bread |
and lay on cookie sheets to toast one side
|I toast One side of my French Bread Slices|
|I saute slices Portobello Mushrooms in butter in a cast iron pan.|
For two cookie sheets of french bread rounds (11/2-2 Frech breads) I used 1 stick of butter, 2 thinly sliced large Portobello Mushrooms
|After the Portobello Mushrooms are cooked, |
I add about 3/4 c. brown sugar, salt and pepper to taste
|After the Mushrooms are cooked, I put a piece on top of each french bread round which has been buttered with cream cheese. I drizzle a bit of the brown sugar and butter sauce over each round.|

11/2 - loaves French Bread, you can use commercial brands or make your own. My recipes: http://www.gloucestergourmet.com/2012/06/melissa-french-bread.html
2-3 large sliced portobello mushroon
1 container or package low fat cream cheese or regular cream cheese, both work well
1 stick butter
3/4 c. brown sugar
salt and pepper to taste
I use 2 covered with aluminum foil cookie sheets for transport and broiling the appetizers just before serving.
Instructions: Slice the french bread and toast on one side, turn over and butter with cream cheese liberally. Saute mushrooms in butter and then top with brown sugar, salt, and pepper after they have cooked a bit. Place a mushroom slice on each round and drizzle with brown sugar butter sauce. When you are ready to serve place under the broiler for a few minutes and serve on a pretty platter with cocktail napkins.
I hope you enjoy making these as much as I enjoy them. They are the perfect thing to bring just about anywhere. Everyone asks me to bring them and I can make them up in advance and so there is little muss of fuss, except to heat them up by putting them under a broiler for a few minutes. Once I went to a Christmas Party with them and the host put them in the oven when I wasn't looking and burnt them. Everyone ate them anyway!!
Happy Holiday Season,
