 Ingredients List

  • 1 lb Fresh mushrooms
  • 1/4 c Butter or margarine
  • 1/3 c Minced onion
  • 1/3 c Finely chopped celery
  • 2 Eggs
  • 3 oz Cream cheese, softened
  • 3/4 c Fine dry bread crumbs
  • 1 ts Salt
  • 1/2 ts Basil leaves, crushed
  • 1/4 ts Rosemary leaves, crushed
  • 1/4 ts Oregano leaves
  • 1/8 ts Ground black pepper


Preheat oven to 400. Rinse, pat dry and finely chop mushrooms (makes about
5 cups); set aside. In a large saucepan melt butter. Add onion and celery;
saute until tender, about 5 minutes; set aside. In a large mixing bowl beat
eggs and cream cheese until smooth. Add bread crumbs, salt, basil,
rosemary, oregano, black pepper and reserved onion and celery mixture and
mushrooms. Stir until mixture is well blended and smooth. Butter a 7 x 4 x
2 inch loaf pan. Cover the long side and bottom of pan with a strip of
waxed paper leaving a 1-1/2 inch overhang. Spoon mushroom mixture evenly
into pan. Cover top of pan with foil. Bake until firm, about 1-1/2 hours.
Cool in pan until lukewarm. Remove from pan using waxed paper overhang as
an aid; discard paper. Serve at room temperature with crackers as an
appetizer garnished with mushroom slices, grated carrot and chopped onion,
if desired. Yield: 12 to 14 portions.
