Cream Cheese and Mushroom Tartlettes

Appetizer #2 for Stir It 28. These little guys went quick. I barely got out of the kitchen and half was already gone! This one is pretty simple and easy to make. It's almost the same as my cream cheese and mushroom puffs, but in bite sized form. I did tweak the recipe up a bit. The cups are made from phyllos dough. No, I didn't make those. I got the premade ready to eat ones from Whole Foods. I was tempted at making them from scratch since I did make the paprika tortilla chips myself, but I've had fairly mixed experiences with working with phyllo dough sheets and being in a bit of a time crunch I couldn't afford to futz around in the kitchen too much. I'll let someone else do that work for me.

The mushrooms and onion were simply sauteed and slightly cooled before mixing in the cream cheese. I chilled it for half hour before stuffing them into the phyllo cups.

Makes 38 tartlettes

Cream Cheese and Mushroom Tartlettes

8oz white mushroom - chopped
1/2 small sweet onion - chopped
1 1/2 oz cream cheese
38 Phyllo cups
salt and pepper to taste

In a skillet, heat a tiny drizzle of oil. Saute the onion and mushrooms. The onions should look translucent. Season with a little salt and pepper. Transfer for a bowl and drain out the juices. Let it cool for 10 minutes before adding the cream cheese. Mix together thoroughly.

Let it chill in the fridge for 30 minutes. Then scoop into the individual phyllo cups.

These can be served at room temp.

I love bite-sized food! These look adorable & sound delicious! The premade cups sound very convenient! I'll have to look for them.

I would seriously grab this platter and just gorge myself before anyone else could have a bite. Maybe that's why I don't get invited to these parties . . .

Truly a crowd pleasing appetizer Jenn. I always love mushroom, add cheese to it, ah ... it like melt in your mouth. In this case, crunch and melt at the same time.
Have a wonderful weekend,

Oh yum!! These look awesome, Jenn. Good party food--I'm going to keep my eyes out for pastry cups next time I go to the market.

What a perfect appetizer, love that you do not need a fork or anything with them. Having gone to several events lately where you need a fork and a knife to cut + you have a glass of wine its a challenge to juggle everything!

These are just gorgeous! I am crazy for anything mushroom! It's really too bad I never have anyone over except for my husband's parents. That's alright now that I think about it...all the more for me!! ;0)

I am glad that I found this recipe. This is perfect for this weekend. I have a little party and this is perfect for the menu.

You can serve these at parties or small gatherings in your house. Besides tartlettes, you can also make mushroom soup and pizza to make a party more special.

This won't succeed in actual fact, that is what I believe.
