A tasty delicacy for buffet, card dinner or carnival party. Cheap and easily prepared. For 12-15 big mushrooms you’ll need:
2 tbsp cooking oil, salt, pepper
3.5oz boiled ham (alt. half boiled ham, half gammon)
3.5oz young Gouda
2-3 tbsp parsley, chopped
1-2 tbsp breadcrumbs
Clean mushrooms and take out shafts carefully. Cut into dice ham, chees, shallots and shafts. Heat 1 tbsp of oil in frying pan and roast mushroom heads on both sides. Remove them from pan and place in a casserole. Salt heads inside. Heat another tablespoon of oil and roast shallot and mushroom dice until liquid has evaporated.
Add cheese, jam, parsley and breadcrumbs to the shallot-mushroom mix. Season with salt and pepper. Then fill into prepared mushroom heads with the help of two tea spoons. Gratinate in the oven at 390°F for 10-15 minutes.
Eat the stuffed mushrooms hot or cold. Served with filled chillies, mini-bell peppers and a fresh loaf of bread you’ll even have a snack or light dinner.
If you take a unsliced cheese simply grade it coarsely. Sliced cheese can be cut into dice however.
