"I am at the moment writing a lengthy indictment against our century. When my brain begins to reel from my literary labors, I make an occasional cheese dip." -John Kennedy Toole, A Confederacy of Dunces
Stuffed mushrooms are really the quintessential cocktail party item. There are so many things you can do with them. From something as simple as crabmeat or smoked gouda, to a slightly more complex dish like this one.
The key to this recipe is the GARLIC. The recipe calls for a single head of roasted garlic, but you could just as easily use two if you absolutely love garlic (or are trying to ward off vampires). It is easier to make the roasted garlic goat cheese first and chill it until you are ready to cook the mushrooms. Stuff the chilled cheese into the room temperature mushroom caps and then roast - the mushrooms will cook a bit faster than the goat cheese that way.
Cooking time: 30 minutes (does not include chilling time)
This recipe can easily be multiplied and leftovers will be good for breakfast the morning after the party. The breadcrumbs might lose their crunch, however.
