About Food – Baked Mushrooms Filled With Sulguni Cheese

In this recipe we will show how to make mushrooms filled with Sulguni cheese (Georgian: სოკო კეცზე) baked in butter in traditional Georgian clay “ketsi” dishes (Georgian: კეცი).

For this recipe you will need 3 ketsi dishes (you can use oven proof dishes if you don’t have any ketsi).

Ingredients (serves 3): 500 grams of mushrooms.

165 grams of butter and 100 grams of Sulguni cheese (you can substitute another cheese, such as mozzarella, if you don’t have Sulguni).

Preparation: Grate the cheese.

Carefully remove the stalks from the mushrooms.

Add 40 grams of butter to each ketsi pan and add the mushrooms.

Put the remaining butter in each mushroom cup and bake in an oven on a low heat for 20 minutes.

After 20 minutes add the grated Sulgani cheese to each mushroom and bake on a low heat for 20 minutes. When ready, the mushrooms should like the ones in the picture below.

Serving: Serve hot, with or without a sprinkling of black pepper.


Note: This mushroom dish is also delicious without cheese but you will need to add salt.

    Sadly I will have to pass on trying this one. Hubby refuses to eat mushrooms in any shape or form. I have to admit I have sneaked some in a few dishes and he never knew…but this would be too obvious. It looks and sounds very good. Hugs

  2. […] Smoked Sulguni (Karoun) Karoun is a California company specializing in Mediterranean cheeses such as the Ackawi we reviewed earlier.  The smoked sulguni tastes a bit liked a smoked provolone.  The smoke flavor is relatively mild compared to the Irish cheddar listed next.  Sulguni is a specialty of Georgia (Eastern Europe not Southeast US) and is a stretched curd cheese like mozzarella.  We didn’t find this sample to be as soft as most mozzarella, and it was perhaps a little more rubbery than a provolone.  It would be yummy used as you would a smoked provolone, but Georgians also use sulguni in stuffed mushrooms.
