I saw Paula Deen make these on television today. If you can't find party rye you can cut regular size bread into fourths. These can also be served at room temperature.
- 1⁄2 cup mayonnaise
- 1⁄4 cup freshly grated parmesan cheese
- 2 ounces canned mushroom stems and pieces, drained
- 0.5 (2 7/8 ounce) can French fried onion rings
- 1 loaf miniature party rye rounds or 8 ounces party pumpernickel bread
- In a bowl, stir together the mayonnaise, Parmesan, mushrooms, and onion rings. Spread on lightly toasted party rye or pumpernickel.
- Place the canapes on a baking sheet and broil until the topping is bubbly.
A tasty treat. I doubled the recipe, sauteed and chopped about 5-6 oz. of Baby Bella mushrooms instead of using canned mushrooms, which, to me, don't have much flavor. Also forgot to toast the party pumpernickel first but it didn't seem to matter. I made the spread early in the day and assembled later. Quick and easy. Thanks, from Janet
These were very tasty. My husband prefered the ones that came out more toasted. I also used a 4 oz can of mushrooms and still thought the mayo was a bit heavy. I will make these again with even less mayo and some fresh sauteed mushrooms. It tasted like I was eating french onion soup with mushrooms. Maybe put a little slice of swiss cheese on top? Yum!
We must have all been watching the same episode! I too was eager to try this and today I did. They were excellent--not only in appearance, but taste as well. I do agree with other reviewers that there was a bit too much mayo (maybe not in Paula's eyes!;). Next time I make these I will reduce the mayo by just a smidge. I also will be adding garlic powder as I am a big fan of garlic. I also used Asiago cheese instead of Parm (had on hand) and it was delish. Overall, an excellent recipe! They were a hit at the Christmas party! Thanks for posting, Cookiedog!
