I recently became familiar with the Safeway Select brand of appetizers that are both tasty and affordable. My husband and I planned a movie night to enjoy after the kids were tucked away in bed and I made a quick trip to the grocery store for some warm and tasty snacks to enjoy. After being extremely pleased with the Safeway Select appetizers I had chosen before, I decided to give their Portobello Mushroom Medallions a try.
Safeway Select Portobello Mushroom Medallions are pastry crusts filled with a portobello mushroom, onions, chives and several cheeses including Provolone, Mozzarella and Parmesan. Both my husband and I adore portobello mushrooms and the combination of the mushroom and delicious cheeses was too much to resist. My grocery store was still offering the Safeway Select frozen appetizers at the low price of three for eight dollars so I scooped up three boxes, fully confident that we would love this snack.
Preparation of Safeway Select Portobello Mushroom Medallions simply could not be any easier. After preheating a conventional oven to four hundred degrees, the mushroom appetizers are placed in a single layer on an ungreased cookie sheet. The sheet is then placed in the center of the oven rack and baked for nine to twelve minutes until the appetizers are a rich golden brown.
A three piece serving of Safeway Select Portobello Mushroom Medallions contains two hundred and twenty calories. There is twelve grams of Fat, ten milligrams of Cholesterol, three hundred and fifty milligrams of Sodium and twenty grams of Total Carbohydrate in each serving. There is also two grams of Sugar, seven grams of Protein, four percent of the daily recommended value of Vitamin A, four percent of Vitamin C, ten percent of Calcium and four percent of Iron contained in three pieces.
I was just as pleased with this frozen appetizer as I anticipated. The Safeway Select Portobello Mushroom Medallions are extremely tasty and very filling. There are only eight appetizers contained in an eight ounce box, but the appetizers are large enough that one box is the perfect size for two people to share. The pastry crust that the mushrooms sit in is dense enough to be filling, but still quite flaky and light. The mushrooms are delicious and the warm, melted cheese is quite tasty and perfectly complements the portobello mushroom. Head down to the video store for a great flick, pick up a bottle of wine and a box or two of Safeway Select Portobello Mushroom Medallions for a fun and inexpensive date night at home!
