Brie and Caramelized Mushroom Mini Tarts

This is the final appetizer I served at my appetizer dinner party for the Opening Ceremonies. This one was a big hit with everyone. Who wouldn’t love a phyllo cup oozing with brie cheese topped with caramelized mushrooms and garlic? These were quick and easy to make and tasted extra delicious.

Brie and Caramelized Mushroom Mini Tarts:
Recipe and photos by For the Love of Cooking.net
 
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 6 oz button mushrooms, chopped into small pieces
  • 6 oz cremini mushrooms, chopped into small pieces
  • 3-4 cloves of garlic
  • Sea salt and freshly cracked pepper, to taste
  • Double creme brie cheese
  • 15 mini phyllo cups
  • Fresh parsley, chopped

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Heat the olive oil in a large skillet over medium high heat. Add the chopped mushrooms to the hot oil and cook, without stirring, for 2-3 minutes. Toss the mushrooms with a spatula and season with sea salt and freshly cracked pepper; cook for an additional 2 minutes then add the minced garlic and a bit of freshly chopped parsley. Cook, stirring continuously for 1 minute then remove from the heat.

Place a big chunk of brie cheese in each phyllo cup then top with a spoonful of the mushrooms. Bake in the oven for 4-5 minutes or until the cheese is oozing and the phyllo cups are golden brown. Serve immediately. Enjoy.

    All of your appetizers look fantastic, but I think I would have parked myself in front of these babies.
