Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cooking Time: 20 minutes
These are a simple and delicious appetizer: the garlic and herbs add great flavor, and who doesn’t like Brie cheese? You could also use low fat mozzarella cheese or other favorite.
1 pound mushrooms, Crimini or button or combo
8 ounces cheese, brie
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 tablespoon butter, light
1 tablespoon garlic, bottled minced
2 tablespoons parsley, fresh, chopped
2 green onion(s) , finely chopped
Preparation: Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Remove stems from mushrooms and pat dry. Melt butter and olive oil in a microwave safe bowl. Place mushrooms on a baking sheet and drizzle with butter and olive oil mixture (you could also add a drizzle of balsamic vinegar for extra flavor). Toss to coat. Arrange mushrooms with hole sides down and cook for about 8 to 10 minutes until just tender. Turn mushrooms over and place one piece of cheese in the center of each. Top with chopped garlic, parsley and green onions. Place back in the oven and bake for about 6 to 8 minutes until cheese is melted. Serve warm on a tray or platter.
