2 dozen hors d'oeuvres


  • 24 medium porcini or cremini mushrooms

  • 3 medium garlic cloves, thinly sliced

  • 3 ounces thinly sliced pancetta, torn into thin strips

  • 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil


  1. Preheat the oven to 450°. Make a cut in the center of each mushroom stem down to the cap. Insert a garlic slice in each stem, wrap a pancetta strip around it and secure with a toothpick. Spread the mushrooms on 2 large baking sheets, brush with the olive oil and bake for about 14 minutes, or until browned and crisp. Remove the toothpicks, transfer to a platter and serve.

Suggested Pairing
