Mushroom Bites Appetizer

Are you ready to start entertaining outside in your backyard? These Mushroom Bites are the perfect appetizer to serve before your barbecue dinner with friends and family!

Mushroom Bites


    8 ounces sliced cremini mushrooms
    1 large shallot, finely diced
    1 garlic clove, minced
    2 tablespoons butter
    1 tablespoon olive oil
    1/2 cup freshly shredded parmesan cheese
    3/4 teaspoon fresh thyme leaves
    1 package puff pastry
    1 egg, beaten
    salt and pepper 

  • Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Line baking sheet with parchment paper and arrange baking racks in top and lower parts of your oven.
  • In a large skillet over medium-low heat, heat 1 tablespoon olive oil and add the shallots and salt until beginning to brown. Remove the shallots to bowl and set them aside.
  • In the same skillet, heat the remaining tablespoon olive oil over medium-low and sauté the mushrooms until tender, about 5 minutes. Add garlic, thyme, and black pepper and sauté for 1 additional minute. Place in the bowl with the onions. Stir in the cheese.
  • On a lightly floured work surface, roll out the puff pastry into an even 10.5-inch square. With a 2-inch round cookie, cut the pastry into rounds (alternatively, you can slice the puff pastry into squares to limit waste). 
  • Transfer the cut puff pastry to a prepared baking sheet, then brush lightly with the beaten egg. Prick each round with a fork to allow air to escape, then top each round 1 tablespoon of the mushroom and shallot filling. 
  • Bake for 25 minutes, until the pastry is golden and crisp, rotating the pans 180 degrees and switching the positions of the baking sheets on the upper and lower racks halfway through. Let bites cool for 5 minutes. Garnish with fresh parsley and serve warm or at room temperature. Serve with Gazpacho for a perfect hearty appetizer this spring!
