This Sunday my family is getting together for a pre-Thanksgiving celebration. My bestie sister and her hubby are going to Florida for Thanksgiving proper, and so we decided to get together a weekend before so that we can all celebrate! PLUS, I’d make up any excuse to see Lil’ Gluten Loves Me.

Since we’re all going to be eating “Thanksgiving food” pretty soon, we decided to mix it up and just serve appetizers on Sunday! My family is pretty big on what we like to call “snackies”. We’re each responsible for one dish, and I already have a contender!

French Onion Soup Stuffed Mushrooms

I took 1/2 packet of french onion dip/soup mix and mixed it with 1/2 block of neufchatel cheese and 1/2 cup feta cheese. Once it was blended I stuffed it into button mushrooms and topped it off with Kinnikinnick Gluten Free Panko Breadcrumbs:

I found these a few weeks ago at Whole Foods and I LOVE THEM!! But back to the mushrooms…

Once stuffed and topped, I baked them in the oven at 400 degrees until the cheese was gooey and the breadcrumbs were golden.

So good :)

Do you have a favorite appetizer?

That gluten free Bisquik makes me think of sausage cheese balls!

I think my family needs to institue a "snackies" celebration soon. :)

Ali- We ALWAYS serve snackies on Christmas Eve!! We always end up OVERSTUFFED, but we love it! Appetizers are some of the best food!

Ha my favorite appetizer is almost the same as yours but sausage mixed in with the cheese then cooked in the mushrooms. Dang they're good. I'm gonna try yours next time.

Marlow said...

Stiney- SAUSAGE!!!! Good addition :)

Ummmm, I didn't think that stuffed mushroom you posted could be any more my favorite appetizer of all time UNTIL I read about the sausage addition. I am drooling for those! Mushrooms are my favorite food, and french onion dip is my favorite 'cheat' treat. And sausage? Well, it's a perfect trifecta. YUM.

These look fantastic! I didn't know that you could get GF panko crumbs. Must put that on my list.

my favorite appetizer is GF version of Rose Elliot's vegetarian sausage rolls! Pie pastry for the wrap and chestnut puree for the main filling ingredient. So very very wonderful.
