Take mushroom, curl slice of cheese around it, curl a strip of bacon around that, impale on a toothpick, dump in frying pan, season.

Sounds nice, Debbie.

I also did some search of my own and came up with this one:

Mushroom & cashew pilaf
Preparation: 12 minutes Cooking: 20 minutes
Serves: 4

11/2cups long grain rice, rinsed
1 cup salted cashews
2 tbs olive oil
5 green onions, thinly sliced
300g button mushrooms, thinly sliced
1 /2cup currants
1 lemon, rind finely grated and juiced
125g feta, crumbled
1 /2cup chopped flat-leaf parsley
salt and ground black pepper, to taste

1. Cook rice following the absorption method on the packet.
2. Heat a large non-stick frying pan over medium-high heat. Add cashews
and cook, stirring often, for 4 minutes or until golden. Remove and
roughly chop. Set aside.
3. Add oil, green onions and mushrooms to pan and cook over mediumhigh
heat, stirring occasionally, for 2-3 minutes until mushrooms are
tender. Add currants, lemon rind and juice and cook for 30 seconds.
4. Add rice, cashews and feta to pan and toss gently over low heat until
well combined. Stir in parsley and season with salt and pepper. Serve
warm or at room temperature with barbecued lamb or seafood.

I made mushroom kebabs on the braai coupla weeks ago. Olive oil, Cajun spice, rosemary, thyme. Or experiment with different herbs and spices. Just mix herbs and spices into olive oil and brush onto kebabs. maybe alternate shrooms with rosa tomatoes, pineapple slices, sweet peppers or whatever veggies you feel like.

Pop kebabs onto the grill for 5min and chow. Works in oven too.

I love Stilton and Mushroom on Bruschetta as a snack or starter:

Cream
Stilton
Mushrooms
Salt
Pepper
Nutmeg


(the cooking part should be self explanatory)

Toasted Bruschetta rubbed with whole garlic.

Chopped flat leaf parsley on the top.



Enjoy...

A good mushroom risotto is still one of my all time favourite dishes - lufferly stuff!!!

I ended up making the mushroom pilaf (I posted the recipe a page back) and it turned out lovely.

DJK: I love risotto but it is much too fattening.
