Party Like A Mad Man Menu | Bloody Mary cocktail recipe | Mushroom canapés recipe | Parmesan canapés recipe | The Unofficial Mad Men Cookbook
I’m an unaware cookbook collector. I say unaware because I didn’t realise until I was finally able to organise them in one room… And as I lovingly placed each one up on the shelves, I realised there was a little issue. I’ve barely cooked with any of them!
 So when Judy from The Unofficial Mad Men Cookbook contacted me asking if I’d join in with other bloggers as part of the Mad Men Virtual Party, I was quick to say yes. While I create food based from books, I decided to take this chance to use the cookbook. Because yes, lo and behold, it was there on my shelf, purchased when they first published it in 2011.

Notes

recipe followed from The Unofficial Mad Men Cookbook as part of the Virtual Mad Men Finale Party.

I was pretty hooked on Mad Men when it first came out. Remember how they had all the fashion lines as well? I was in love with those. I even bought a boyfriend at the time a 50’s style bar cart for his apartment so he could pour a whiskey after work. I spend months researching and scouring the internet to find the right one. He was one of those people where you’re certain they’re living in the wrong era.

Mushroom Canapés | Mad Men


  • Author: Bryt @ InLiterature.net

Ingredients

Units Scale
  • 1pound (or 2 cups) finely chopped white button mushrooms
  • 2 tbsp butter
  • 1 tsp Worcestershire sauce
  • 1/2 tsp onion salt
  • 1/4 cup finely grated Parmesan cheese
  • 20 Mela toast or similar
  • parsley for garnish

Instructions

  1. Preheat the broiler in your oven.
  2. On a baking tray, evenly lay out the Melba Toast.
  3. In a medium frying pan, over medium heat, melt the butter.
  4. Add in the mushrooms and sauté.
  5. Pour in the Worcestershire sauce, and sprinkle in the onion salt, then stir.
  6. Turn off heat and stir in the Parmesan cheese.
  7. Scoop the mixture onto the Melba Toast.

  9. Remove and serve on platters with small sprigs of parsley as garnish on top.
Making these recipes I made a note to myself, that the next time I throw a cocktail party, to cook 1950’s style. The recipes are so easy, and would save me a lot of time in the kitchen! I whipped together three of the recipes for the party–two canapés, mushroom as well as parmesan, and a Bloody Mary. Being Canadian, I’m partial to the Caesar, however, being in Australia (with a lack of Clamato), I happily sip Bloody Mary’s while I wait until the next trip back home.
