Since American Thanksgiving is this week, I remembered this wonderful appitiser

A great appetizer, oh heck, I could make a meal of these¦.

*Mushroom Tarts*

Crust-

3oz Cream Cheese
½ c butter or margarine
1c flour (OR 1c gluten free flour mix of your choice, and 1/2t xanthan gum)
Cream together the cream cheese and butter. Add flour and mix well with a fork or a pastry cutter.
Take a golf ball sized ball of crust and press it into a muffin pan cup covering the bottom and sides. Repeat till all cups have a crust. Chill.
Please note: this size recipe will create about 16 shells.

Filling-

8oz fresh mushrooms

¼ c. fresh parsley

 5 green onions

3 T butter or margarine

2 T Vegetable Oil

½ t salt

¾ t ground marjoram

6 T grated sharp cheddar cheese

6 T  GF bread crumbs

Finely chop the mushrooms in a food processer. Remove them and mince the parsley, remove them and mince the green onion.

In a frying pan, heat the butter and oil. Add the minced vegetables and sauté over medium heat for about 6 minutes. The vegetables will start to give off their liquid and thicken a little. Transfer mixture to a bowl and add the salt, marjoram, grated cheese, and bread crumbs. Mix well. Divide the filling among the chilled tart shells. Bake in a preheated 350 degree oven for 20 to 25 minutes. Let cool for 5 minutes before unmolding.

If you can't be a shining example, be a terrible warning!

Mmmmm, thanks Michelle. That looks very tasty. I've been using a cream cheese pastry recipe for a few years now and find it very good.

A must make in my house for solstice/christmas feasts is tarts filled with caramelised onions topped with cranberry sauce.

big_laugh Just what I said - your favourite pastry, caramelised some onions and use whatever cranberry sauce you like. Sometimes I put the onions on the bottom and cranberry sauce on top, sometimes the other way round. I can't decide which is best. I make individual ones and non GF people get flakey pastry if they're lucky. Sprinkle some rosemary on top and bake. i_am_hungry

Try sundried tomatoes instead of the cranberry sauce, thats yummy too.

I have been trying to work out where to post this without starting another GF topic. It should go under nibbles or some such, really.

I was looking at ingredients lists the other day, as one does (I am having another wheat-free spell, unfortunately) and noticed that Rice Crackers have wheat in them. Bombay Mix, Sesame Sticks, and several others that you would think would have wheat in them don't. This was in Julian Graves, but I guess other brands are similar.

Confusing isn't it? I always say I can't eat anything unless I have my reading glasses with me!
