Chestnut Mushrooms or Flat Mushrooms
Prep Time: 10 Minutes
Cook Time: 15-20 Minutes
Layering-not just for outfits.
- Lightly grease each hollow of a muffin tin to begin.
- Give your mushrooms a wash, then cut the stalks out as close to the mushroom head as you can. (It will almost "pop" out). Put the stalks to one side. Place a mushroom into each hole in your baking tin.
- Fill each mushroom with about a teaspoon of soft cheese. Any variety is fine-I used garlic and herb for extra flavour.
- Chop up a celery stick finely, and carry on filling each mushroom with the slices.
- Add a blob of BBQ sauce on the top-or you could use sweet chilli sauce, or I reckon dijon mustard would work nicely.
- Top with a thin slice of cheddar cheese, or basically any cheese you have in your fridge already. Brie would be amaze, and also blue stilton paired with celery is heaven sent.
- Add another blob of sauce, and use it as a glue to rejoin the mushroom stalk to it's previous partner.
- Drizzle with olive oil, vegetable oil, flora spray-whatever you have to hand.
- Stick in the oven at 180 for 15-20 mins.
- After you've scooped the mushrooms onto a plate, you should have mushroomy, cheesy oilyness left in the tray. Lightly drizzle this back over the plate for extra flavour and to keep those mushrooms moist!
I served mine with veg and chicken, but if you used larger flat mushrooms, this could even be a starter.
Now, assuming you probably have some sauce, some oil, and just any kind of cheese in your fridge, based on current Tesco prices, you could make this for you and a friend for £2.89 and then have soft cheese and celery leftover for later. You can totally fill a celery stick up with soft cheese and have as a kind of nearly healthy snack!
Now that your purse is still feeling pleasantly full and so is your stomach, you definitely deserve a treat.
How about this Amplified Kiss Baseball Top from ASOS which is recommended at £30 but is being sold at a mere £12.50?
I KNOW I DID!
