Brie and Caramelized Mushroom Mini Tarts

Brie and Caramelized Mushroom Mini TartsThis is the final appetizer I served at my appetizer dinner party for the Opening Ceremonies. This one was a big hit with everyone. Who wouldn’t love a phyllo cup oozing with brie cheese topped with caramelized mushrooms and garlic? These were quick and easy to make and tasted extra delicious.

  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 6 oz button mushrooms, chopped into small pieces
  • 6 oz cremini mushrooms, chopped into small pieces

Brie and Caramelized Mushroom Mini TartsHow to Make Brie and Caramelized Mushroom Mini Tarts

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.

Heat the olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the chopped mushrooms to the hot oil and cook, without stirring, for 2-3 minutes. Toss the mushrooms with a spatula and season with sea salt and freshly cracked pepper; cook for an additional 2 minutes then add the minced garlic and a bit of freshly chopped parsley. Cook, stirring continuously for 1 minute then remove from the heat.

Place a big chunk of brie cheese in each phyllo cup then top with a spoonful of the mushrooms.

Bake in the oven for 4-5 minutes or until the cheese is oozing and the phyllo cups are golden brown. Serve immediately. Enjoy.

  1. I really must have a get together soon with nothing but appetizers (and wine, because in my world there is always wine). These appetizers look amazing.

  2. These appys look delicious, Pam. The little phyllo shells are such a time saver. This is on the menu the next time I prepare appetizers.

  3. more mini tarts! and with brie! i'll be honest–i'd prefer the brie-nut-jam appetizer, but these are delicious in their own right!

  4. OMG do these sound like heaven to me!! I can't wait to try them out with my husband this weekend. 🙂 Thanks for keeping the great recipes coming.
