4 stuffed mushrooms


  • 4 button mushrooms, stemmed

  • 2 teaspoons dried garlic flakes, divided

  • 4 teaspoons tomato paste

  • salt to taste

  • 2 slices American cheese, halved and divided


  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees F (220 degrees C). Grease a sheet of aluminum foil.

  2. Arrange mushrooms onto a sheet of aluminum foil with the hollow side facing upward. Spoon 1/2 teaspoon garlic flakes into each mushroom cap. Top each garlic portion with 1 teaspoon tomato paste; season with salt. Lie half a cheese slice atop each mushroom cap.

  3. Bake in preheated oven until the cheese is slightly browned, about 10 minutes.

Cook's Note:

It's important to put the dried garlic flakes in first, because the moisture from the mushrooms will re-hydrate them.

Use your favorite cheese. Any type will do.
