Goat Cheese Stuffed Mushrooms for Crazy Ingredient Challenge and Mel's First Birthday Party

This months Crazy Ingredient Challenge was perfect.  First, it contained 2 ingredients that I loved...Mushrooms and Goat Cheese.  Second, we were hosting a first birthday party for our Little Miss Melody and these ingredients came together beautifully to create a stunning appetizer while everyone was enjoying cocktails before dinner was served.

We served several appetizers while people were arriving and awaiting dinner. We had a cheese and cracker tray, my homemade canned salsa with chips and these wonderful mushroom caps stuffed with goat cheese and bread crumbs.

They were a great hit before dinner as our guests had an opportunity to visit with each other and ooooh and aaaaah over how wonderful and talented our Little Miss Melody is.  She had a wonderful time showing off for everyone.

She needed help blowing out her candle but she needed no help in eating her delicious cake.  She figured that out with no problem at all.

Little Miss did need some help from Mommy and Daddy opening all  the gifts though,  There were LOTS of them and she was very overwhelmed by it all.

It was a wonderful party and a wonderful venue for serving up my Crazy Ingredient Challenge Recipe.  It was a big hit and I think it will be perfect for your next celebration.  

Goat Cheese Stuffed Mushroom Caps

1 (12 oz) pkg white button mushrooms, cleaned with stems removed'
3 slices white bread
1 T. garlic paste ( I used Gourmet Garden)
salt and pepper to taste
1 (4 oz) log of herb goat cheese

Place mushroom caps on a baking sheet sprayed with cooking spray.  Place bread, garlic, salt and pepper in a food processor and pulse until fine crumbs form.  Remove 1/2 c. and set aside.  Place herbed goat cheese into processor with crumbs and pulse until combined.  Spoon goat cheese mixture into each mushroom cap.  Top with reserved bread crumbs.  Bake in a preheated oven at 400* for 15 to 20 minutes, until mushroom caps are tender and filling is lightly browned.  Print Recipe
