Recipe: Double Cheese Garlic Chilli Mushrooms

IMG_3192A dirty and quick dish to prepare, but will add something out of the ordinary as a side, or part of a meal; you could even use them as a starter.

On their own, the mushrooms are compatible with an #LCHF (Low Carb, High Fat) diet, and are vegetarian. I decided to be bad when I had ’em, and served with some spiced fries, and deep fried jalapeños stuffed with cream cheese… Mmmmmm! 🙂


  • 4 Large Flat Mushrooms, with the stems removed
  • Around 50g Unsalted Butter
  • 2 tsp Minced/Crushed Garlic
  • 1 tsp Harissa Powder (Or paste)
  • 1/2 tsp PimentĂłn (A little more to sprinkle on top as well)
  • 50/50 Mix of Mature Cheddar and Mozzarella (Grated) to top
  • Salt & Pepper to taste
  • Olive Oil


Melt the butter, mix in the herbs, spices and garlic.
Remove stems from the mushrooms, chop the stems finely, mixing them into the butter/garlic/spice mixture to form a coarse paste.

Brush the mushrooms with Olive Oil and place onto a foil covered baking tray.
Spread the paste evenly over the shrooms, and top with the cheese mixture.
Sprinkle a little Harissa, and some pepper over the cheese topped mushrooms.

Cook in a preheated over at 180 degrees centigrade for around 20-25 minutes until done 🙂
