I did a test run of this recipe to see if I could use it for get together I'm having at my house. My requirements were: 1) It tastes good 2) It's easy to put together and / or can be made ahead of time 3) It cooks quickly This recipe passed on all counts. I'm definatley making this for the party. The only change I'm going to make is to chop up the mushrooms & reduce the size of each bundle a little because I'll have a few appetizers and these were a little big. I wouldn't change anything else because these are great!
These were wonderful. I'm not sure what I did differently or if my mushrooms were just too big but my puff pastry was only enough for 18 mushrooms and that was totally by stretching around the mushroom. If I were to cut the dough into 36 squares it wouldn't of made it around the smallest mushroom I had. But they were delicious none the less. Thanks so much for posting. ChefRaylene
Meredity .F - Thank you for sharing your recipe. I am not rating these little gems yet as I have not made them but will be very soon. The ingredients and method sound delightful. If one is as fond of Gorgonzola or any blue cheese variety what is not to like? IMPORTANT TIP: Because mushrooms are mostly water please do not rinse or soak mushrooms to clean them as they are extremely porous and soak up water like a sponge then release it later while cooking (which can change the consistency of recipes). Since commercially available mushrooms are grown in a sterile medium it is best to simply wipe any dirt particles from fresh mushroom with a damp towel or paper towel. Also be aware that salt releases the water in mushrooms, so judge the salt usage accordingly for your particular recipe.
