One of my mom, Cherri’s, original recipes that she created when the family lived in France, back in the 1960’s. My mom made this Cherri’s Stuffed Mushrooms Recipe at a lot of our family gatherings as it is just so good.
My father just told me this story last night, one I had never heard before.
Their neighbor, Madame Jordan, had invited the family to dinner. Madame Jordan served a mushroom casserole dish which my father to this day, some 50 years later, still remembers and wishes he could have it again. The dish, as described by my father, was a layer of mushrooms topped with a meat mixture layered on top of it. The meat mixture was made from leftover roast beef and was served by cutting it like a meat loaf.
I don’t have that original recipe, but my mom adapted it and turned it into this appetizer. I think I’m going to have to try to make that dish sometime soon and see how close I can get to it based on my father’s memory. If you decide to try it, let me know how it goes.
