Cheese Dripping Mushrooms

Great to have for those game parties! Just make sure you buy a big bottle of burgundy so you have some left-over to sip on while your pig(skin)ing out! Changed our plans for taking a trip up north until the spring when we hope to land in Indiana for morel mushroom hunting season! Really wanted to go to see the fall leaves, but from what I’m hearing, there will not be much of a change of color this year, so we opted to take a shorter trip and just head up to Georgia and maybe see them there. This is National Mushroom month and this recipe is very, very simple but packs a lot of taste simmered in the burgundy and topped with cheese!

Cheese Dripping Mushrooms
  • 2 lbs medium sized mushrooms, stems removed, washed and well drained
  • ½ cup butter
  • 3 cups burgundy (that's why I said to get a BIG bottle)
  • 8 oz cheddar cheese, mild or sharp, grated medium
  • 8 oz Swiss cheese, grated medium
  1. Melt butter in a large skillet over medium-low heat; add mushrooms and then add the burgundy.
  2. Simmer mixture for about 30 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  3. Transfer mushrooms into a greased baking dish (stem side up) with a little of the burgundy liquid; top with cheeses and bake in a 350 degree oven until cheeses are melted and piping hot.


Today is Eat An Apple Day and the first day of fall, YEAH! So again, have a nice weekend and enjoy! I’m off to catch the Florida Gator game and fix some BBQ vittles for din-din!         Go Gators…………….

Souped Up Chicken Lasagna

This not your everyday lasagna as the spaghetti sauce is substituted with canned soup! Today is National Lasagna Day along with National Chicken Wing Day and I thought I’d combine the two, well sort of! Hope everyone had a nice weekend, ours was great until last night when Mother Nature dumped another 2 inches of rain on us, ruining today for working out in the yard as everything is saturated but once again. Of course, some of our friends out there in cyber world got it a lot worse than we did and our hearts go out to them. It’s Monday and not a big cooking day here at the hacienda, so lasagna would have to be in my freezer already cooked for us to enjoy it for dinner. My last search came up empty and it is time to make some real soon, just don’t know which kind to make yet, maybe this one for something different!
