Artichoke Stuffed Mushroom Pies with Simple Salad


This was inspired by this recipe from the November issue of Food Network magazine, a complete lack of puff pastry at my grocery store, some extra artichoke hearts in my refrigerator, and the belief that anything is good when wrapped in crescent rolls. I was originally going to add some turkey sausage for Jim, but since he’s over at his brother’s working on some repairs, I figured I could make a fully vegetarian meal with no complaints.

I could not be more pleased with how well this turned out. I made three pies, and I now am holding myself back from eating the other two. Who would know? Jim isn’t home, and the little man is in bed, but I’ll keep using my will power to stay on the couch watching T.V. and working on my blog. Gosh, I have such impressive will power, don’t I? I think you could have a lot of fun with this recipe. I toyed with the idea of adding some sun dried tomatoes, but I wanted to keep it simple for this first go around. I’ll probably end up trying the sausage sometime too.

Ingredients:

  • Cooking spray
  • 1 package crescent roll seamless sheet
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper
  • 3 large Portobello mushroom caps, gills scooped out
  • ½ cup mushroom caps, diced
  • ½ cup artichoke hearts, finely chopped
  • ¼ cup breadcrumbs
  • ¼ cup parmesan cheese
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 1 large egg, beaten
  • 2 to 3 Tbsp Honey Mustard dressing
  • 2 to 3 cups spring mix
  • 1 pear or apple, cored and thinly sliced

Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 375⁰ degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and mist with cooking spray.
  2. Roll the puff pastry to lengthen and widen it about a ½ inch in both directions. Place the mushrooms gill-side up on the pastry and season with salt and pepper.
  3. In a bowl, mix the mushrooms, artichoke hearts, breadcrumbs, cheese, and garlic together. Spoon the mixture into the mushroom “bowls”.
  4. Fold in the pastry edges, pleating to fully cover the mushrooms; press to seal. Brush both sides of the pastry with the beaten egg. Place seam-side down on the baking sheet, make slits in the top and bake until golden and crisp, 22 minutes. Let cool slightly.
  5. Meanwhile, toss the dressing with the salad greens and fruit. Serve the salad with the mushroom pies.
