Kim's Favorite Cheesy Mushroom Puffs

These Cheesy Mushroom Puffs is one of Kim Kneeland, Farm Manager at Fat Moon Farm, and her family's favorite recipes.


Here are a few words about this recipe from Kim:

"For me, savory dishes are my favorite. This recipe is easy to prep the day before and bake the day of, or even take with you and bake at the party.

My whole family is now obsessed with this snackable, bite-sized appetizer and gobbles these puffs up right out of the oven

While your puffs are baking, take a moment to hear a bit more from Kim. This time, learn about why she loves working at the farm so much:

"There’s no wonder why I found myself working in the world of organic farming and local food.

I love everything about food- how it’s grown, how it creates community, how it nourishes us, how it brings us together, how fun it is to create something in the kitchen...

And, how when done intentionally and in concert with nature’s rhythms, like we do here at the farm, producing food can also create sustainable, resilient landscapes!"
