Chanterelle mushrooms, pancetta and garlic make up the filling for these mini puff pastry tarts. Elegant canapés for parties.
You can use mini puff pastry cases ready formed from the supermarket.
I found this to be quite a charming recipe--easy to make with impressive results. Since the phyllo tart shells are not available in my area, I took phyllo dough and pressed it around the cups of a muffin pan, then filled the cups with the mixture. Although the recipe lends itself well to chanterelle mushrooms, it can be modified easily, e.g. by substituting spinach for the mushrooms. Any quiche ingredients would work. I find that this particular recipe tastes best by increasing the garlic, onions, cream cheese and Swiss cheese a bit, and I add an extra egg. This dish is also quite suitable for brunch. - 17 Aug 2008 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
Pretty good, but next time I will add more Swiss cheese, cream cheese, and bacon. - 08 Dec 2003 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
The only changes I made were to omit the parsley, and I used chestnut mushrooms. I couldn't find phyllo shells (admittedly, I didn't look too hard) so I used a cookie cutter to cut out circles of white bread which I pressed into a greased muffin tin, and toasted in the oven for about 5 mins. Turned out really well! This is a nice little snack/appetizer. Thanks! - 15 Aug 2008 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
