Incredible Mushroom Cupcakes

Here's one of the most interesting cupcake recipes I've seen:


Wild Mushroom Butter

For this recipe you can use any edible wild mushroom that you have on hand . . . chantrelles, porcini, morels, oysters, shaggy manes . . . any of them!

If mushroom season has passed, you can use any domestic mushroom typically found in your grocery store. Shiitake, cremini or button mushrooms will all produce a rich creamy butter.

Serve it on sourdough bread and you have a delicious appetizer.  A dollop on top a bowl of cream of mushroom soup would also be a delicious main course.

Stuffed Portobello Mushroom Recipe

Need a change from chicken and meat for dinner?  Portobello mushrooms make an excellent main course. Portobello mushrooms are quite large and provide a substantial portion for a meal.  They have a meaty texture, they are full of flavour, and they taste delicious when they are baked or grilled.

To make this entrée, Portobello mushrooms are filled with rice and black beans.  Sprinkle some cheddar cheese on top and your next dinner is complete.
