Mini Mushroom Galettes










So I have got a growing fondness for mushrooms. I used to think they were these strange little fungus things. Probably never even having one till up to one trip in Vancouver in 2008. We were sitting in a restaurant in Gastown and the only vegetarian thing on the menu was a Portobello Burger. Obviously not thrill, I ordered it reluctantly because I was so hungry. And it turned out amazing! I am obviously one of those people that if I have never tried it, I automatically think 'I'll hate it.' I don't know why, but it's just like that.

So after trying this cheddar crust recipe, and loving it, I knew I had to do my own variation. These are a great little snack or have a few for dinner. And the dry jack cheese, this is a great cheese.  I could just eat in by itself all day long. So good and crumbly. 

Hope you are all having a happy weekend! Off to work for me, my 'weekend' starts on Monday.

I made these last night and they were delicious. Except I just used gouda since it was easier to buy the one cheese.

Julie Marie said...

Awesome! yeah you could really substitute many cheeses or just use the one and I think it would turn out good.
