October Supper Club Recipes

October Supper Club LadiesMy incredibly talented girlfriends and I started a Supper Club – we meet at a different member’s house each month, break our our fancy flat wear and table decor, and gather around the table for a delicious home-cooked four- to five-course meal. Our goal is to try out and share new recipes, expand our cooking and hostess skills and do it all while catching up on each others’ lives and enjoying a nice glass of wine.

We kicked off Supper Club with our first meeting in October. Below, find the delish recipes!

Mushrooms Stuffed with Brie

  • 1 package white button mushrooms, washed and stems removed
  • 4 cloves minced garlic
  • 1/4 cup chopped parsley
  • 4 -d whole green onions, sliced
  • Splash of white wine
  • 1 wedge of brie cheese

Preparation:

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Melt butter in large saucepan. Add mushroom caps and toss to coat in butter. Sprinkle lightly with salt and cook for 1 minute. Remove mushrooms from pan and place upside down in a baking dish.
  3. In the same saucepan (without cleaning it) throw in garlic, parsley, and green onions. Sprinkle very lightly with salt and splash in wine, if using. Stir around until wine evaporates, about 1 minute. Remove from heat.
  4. Cut rind off of brie wedge, then cut pieces of brie to fit each mushroom cap. Place inside, lightly pressing to anchor each piece of brie.
  5. Top mushrooms with parsley/garlic mixture. Place into the oven for 15 minutes, or until brie is melted.

Note: Mushrooms are best when they’ve been allowed to cool slightly. Delicious!
