Mushroom & Stilton Puff

So, not only am I back in blogland I am happy to say that I am also making my way back into the kitchen… I know I know I can hear the cheers from here. So what tasty treats of pure delight am I bringing you this week I hear you ask? Well, you know I like mushrooms? Cool. You know I like cheese? Yup. Well…. let’s put them together and allow me to bring you this totally amazing (veggie of course) main course which is actually just to die for!! Grab your cheese boards and here we go…

Ingredients (serves 4):Pile of raw field mushrooms

500g Puff Pastry (yup I used pre-bought and rolled)

4 Large Field Mushrooms, de-stemmed

500g Fresh Spinach

4 Cloves of Garlic, 1 whole 3 crushed

250g Stilton Cheese, crumbled

1 Egg, beaten

Olive Oil

Salt and Pepper

bulbs of garlic - whole and rawMethod:

1 – Pre-Heat oven to 180. Put a frying pan on a medium heat and drizzle in some olive oil and the whole clove of garlic merely pressed open slightly with the side edge of a knife. Once to temperature add the large field mushrooms and cook on both sides until softened. Put to one side on some kitchen paper and allow to sit.

2 – Using the same pan, add more olive oil and the crushed garlic and put all of the spinach in and cook until wilted and most of the liquid has evaporated and then leave to cool slightly.

3 – Roll out (or in my case uncurl) your pastry and cut 4 circles slightly bigger than your mushrooms and place them on baking parchment on a baking tray. Then cut out 4 larger circles and have these to hand for in a moment (for this I used a bowl and then a side plate for bigger ones).

4 – On each of the circles on the baking parchment, place a small mound of stilton, one field mushroom face down on top of this, a pile of the garlic spinach on the back of the mushroom and top with a small amount of stilton on top… I know mouth watering!! Sprinkle over a little salt and pepper too!

5 – Now brush the beaten egg around the rim of each of the stacks and then carefully place the bigger pastry circles you cut before, over the top and press down and seal around the edge using a fork or your fingers. Finish each of these off by brushing the remaining egg mix over the outside of each one.

6 – Pop the tray in the oven – they will take approx. 35-45 mins depending on how good your oven is… just make sure they are golden brown and puffed and it’s pretty certain they’ll be ll done. Take them out and serve immediately…. delish!

 

 

We served ours with some delicious sweet potato shoestring fries and a salad… though to be honest these things are monsters so a salad on it’s own would have been fine! Want to add some heat? When pre-cooking the mushrooms sprinkle in some Cayenne Pepper to the oil. Want to add some meat? When pre-cooking the spinach, add some diced bacon too!

There you have it folks… Mushroom and Stilton Puff! This one sure is a winner for me! Why not Pin it and let me know how it turns out won’t you?
