Button Mushroom Tapas

Button Mushroom Tapas

Enjoy these while they're so hot that they almost burn you. They go great with sherry or wine.


Button mushrooms
Cured ham
1 slice
1 clove
1 tablespoon
a small amount
Black pepper
a small amount
Olive oil
a lot


1. Mince the cured ham, garlic, and parsley. Sprinkle with salt and pepper.
2. Remove the stems from the mushrooms. Stuff the ingredients from Step 1 into the mushrooms.
3. Heat a large amount of olive oil in a frying pan. Place the mushrooms from Step 2 into the frying pan with the filling side up. Continuously scoop the oil and pour it over the mushrooms as they fry. (Don't flip them over.)
4. You can also fry the stems at the same time, so they're not wasted.

Story Behind this Recipe

I love this dish served in Spanish bars, so I tried making it myself.
