Mushroom and Cream Cheese Canapes

Total Time
Prep 10 mins

I've been on a mushroom kick lately, and these have been very popular. You can make the mushroom mixture up to 2 days in advance and just put it together and pop it under the broiler when your guests arrive. Actually, who needs guests, these are a wonderful indulgence when alone as well!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Mix together the cream cheese, butter, and egg yolk until very smooth.
  2. Mix in the Parmesan cheese, pepper, mushrooms, and scallions until well mixed.
  3. Preheat the broiler.
  4. Arrange the baguette slices on a broiling pan.
  5. Top each baguette slice with about a tablespoon of the mushroom mixture.
  6. Broil four inches from the heat for 3-5 minutes, or until hot and bubbly.
  7. Serve hot.

These are great Mirj, very easy to make, I used low-fat cheese cheese. I also doubled the recipe. Thanks so much for posting. This will be made by me very often.

Thes are the best! I actually like to add just a dash of garlic powder as well. I have made these at several gatherings and they are a constant hit! Thanks!!

I goofed somewhere - I cut the recipe in half followed the recipe amounts and steps made it a day ahead and refrigerated the mixture Just beforeserving I spread the mixture on thin slices of baguette however it was very soft, almost runny and did not get bubbly when I broiled them. . I do not know what I did wrong, perhaps the recipe does not reduce easily. When I make this again I will make the whole recipe and will review it again.
