Mushroom Lemon Dill Tartlet
Bruschetta, Canapes, and Crostini,
Yields: makes many tartlets
Prep time: 15 min
Cook time: 10 min
mushrooms (fresh or canned), diced
2 tablespoons unsalted sweet butter
2 tablespoons minced onion
1/8 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon black pepper
Juice of 1/2 lemon
2 tablespoons finely-chopped fresh dill weed
Precooked Tartlet Shells*
* Tartlet shells may be purchased or
homemade. They may be made of either pie dough, Filo dough, or bread slices
(your choice). Use 1 1/2- to 2-inch tartlet shells. If shells are pre-cooked, they do not need
to be re-cooked. If shells are not cooked, then follow directions as per type of shell purchased.
Preheat oven to 225 degrees F.
In a large frying pan over medium heat,
melt butter. Add mushrooms, onion, salt, pepper, and lemon juice; sauté
until the mushrooms are tender (if using fresh mushrooms) and all the liquid
is absorbed. Add cream and continue to cook until the mixture thickens.
Remove from heat.
Fill the Tartlet Shells with the mushroom
mixture. Sprinkle the top with dill weed.
Bake just until the tartlets are warm,
approximately 10 minutes.
Makes approximately 12 to 24 tartlets
(depending on size of the shells).
