Thanksgiving was a few weeks ago and I always like to bring something even if it’s not a pot-luck style. So I made these delightful little cheesy mushroom rolls to share. A friend of mine makes something very similar that we had at her place one time and I liked them so much I thought I’d try my hand at them and put a Kyra spin on them 🙂
In the pictures below I actually made a double batch of the filling then froze half to use another time.
Cheesy Mushroom Rolls
1 Tbs butter
1/2 lbs (250g) mushrooms (I prefer brown/cremini)
1/2 Cup onion (about 1/2 onion)
1 clove garlic or 1 tsp garlic powder
1/4 tsp thyme
1/2 tsp Worcestershire sauce
1/2 Cup grated Parmesan cheese
1 brick (8oz) cream cheese
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp pepper
1 loaf white bread
1/3 Cup melted butter
– Chop fine the mushrooms and onion.
– Melt 1 Tbs butter in a large pan on about medium heat then sauté mushrooms and onion for about 15 mins until they are cooked.
– While that is sautéing cut the crusts off of your bread and using a rolling pin (or a wine bottle as I don’t own a rolling pin haha) flatten the slices of bread one by one and set aside. *If you feel they might get dried out as they wait for the filling just put a clean kitchen towel over them*
– Mince or press the garlic and add to the mushrooms and onions once they are cooked. Stir this around for about 1 min to let the garlic cook a bit.
– Lower the heat to about med-low and add the thyme, Worcestershire, Parmesan, salt and pepper and stir to combine.
– Next add the cream cheese and stir it in until it is completely melted. *go ahead and give this a taste to see if you need to adjust the salt or pepper*
– Now to assemble spoon about 1 Tbs of the mixture onto a slice of bread. Spread it evenly over the whole slice then roll it up. Using a serrated knife cut into 3 pieces. Continue until all the bread is used.
– Put these on a baking sheet then brush generously with the melted butter.
– Bake for 10-15 minutes at 400F until they are nice and toasted.
*Recipe Note: Try not to roll the bread too thin so the butter has more chance to sponge into it, they will turn out more light and crisp*
Thanks and until next time, enjoy your adventures!
