Packet-baked mushrooms with thyme

George Whiteside


  • 3 228-g pkgs button or cremini mushrooms
  • 130-g log soft goat cheese
  • 4 tsp chopped fresh thyme
  • 4 tsp melted butter
  • 8 slices country bread


  • Position racks in top third and centre of oven. Preheat to 450F. Cut out 4 14-in. squares of parchment. Fold each square in half diagonally then open up and lay flat.
  • Slice mushrooms in half and divide among parchment squares. Fold each into a triangular-shaped packet. Fold and crimp edges and twist ends to seal. Place packets on two baking sheets.
  • Bake, switching racks halfway through, until packets puff up, about 20 to 25 min.
  • Roll goat cheese in thyme to coat. Slice into 4 rounds. When mushrooms are done, snip open tops of packets. Drizzle mushrooms with butter and top with cheese. Serve with toast.
