Foodie Fridays: Yummy cheesy mushrooms

We had a chance to eat these really yummy mushrooms over at a birthday party sometime ago.  Our friend A was nice enough to share with me her recipe for them, and I recently tried making them for our mushroom-loving little boy, and they were certainly a hit!  They are really simple to prepare, but pretty nutritious, and make for great finger food especially for toddlers. :)

Cheesy Mushrooms

:: Portobello mushrooms
:: Mozzarella cheese
:: Garlic (I used 2 cloves to cook 5 mushrooms as I love the garlicky taste!)
(Amounts will have to be adjusted by your preference and the number of people you want to prepare for!)

1. Pre-heat oven to 180 degrees Celsius.  Chop garlic and fry in olive oil.

2. Wash mushrooms, line in a tray with bottoms facing upwards, and drench mushrooms in oil and garlic.

3.  Sprinkle mushrooms with cheese (ensure entire surface is covered).  Bake for approximately 7-10 minutes and serve!

Simple, yes?  These can be done in a toaster too, if you don't want to have the hassle of using the oven, and are perfect for picnics too... Let me know if you do try making them!


Do you have any tried and tested recipes for meals suitable for the whole family?  If you have some easy-to-prepare, healthy recipes, do drop me an email at john(dot)jus(at)gmail(dot)com, with the ingredients, steps, and if possible, a photo of the food!  We'll post the recipes on Fridays, with a link back to your blog if you have one... :)

Blessed weekend!


  1. u should try the roasted garlic me & ame had for pizza dinner last night. it was so good. since u r already using the oven, can save time & effort by putting the whole garlic in skin & all, drizzled with olio, in oven next to mushrooms, then squish it, spread on mushroom like pate before serving. no need to fry on stovetop first.

  2. Rowene: Oh ok! That will certainly help to save some time... thanks leh!

  3. I would also bake cheese with cauliflower or tau kwa (firm beancurd). Actually that is the ONLY way I can get the kid to eat his veg.
