Set the Holiday Table with Mushrooms

December 1, 2016

From appetizers to dinner to breakfast, set the holiday table with mushrooms this year.

It’s that time of year: There’s a crisp chill in the air, streets are decked with lights and your calendar is booked with holiday get-togethers. Whether you’re prepping for a five-course meal or just bringing a dish to pass, don’t forget to add mushrooms to the menu. Need an appetizer? Try our Acorn Squash Stuffed with Sausage and Mushrooms. Planning an office potluck? Opt for Blended Meatballs. Make the holidays easy with our fool-proof, crowd-pleasing, mushroom-centric dishes.

Tips for the hostess:

  • Food prep the day(s) before. Bake the pies, chop the veggies and assemble your ingredients ahead of time. You’ll be amazed at how much stress this will save you the day of.
  • Cover your bases. Be sure to include a few meat-free options such as Roasted Mushroom Parsnip Soup or Baked Brie with Crispy Mushrooms in your holiday spread.
  • Make it a team effort. Recruit your friend to bring the fruit salad and purchase the rolls from the bakery down the street. No need to do it all on your own!
