The tangy-earthy pairing of goat cheese and mushrooms has long been a delicious duo. Here, a kaleidoscope of mushrooms—oyster, cremini, maitake, and shiitake—are crisped in a skillet for serving on crackers with a decadent goat cheese dip and a sprinkle of finely chopped herbs, nuts, and dried fruit.
Preheat the oven to 350°F. In a food processor, combine the cream cheese, goat cheese, Parmigiano-Reggiano, and 1 Tbs. water. Process until combined. Transfer to a 2-cup casserole dish, sprinkle with additional Parmigiano-Reggiano, and bake until lightly puffed and browned on the surface, 20 to 25 minutes.
In a small bowl, toss together the parsley, nuts, and cranberries until combined, and set aside.
In a 12-inch skillet, heat 1 Tbs. of the oil over medium-low heat. Add half of the mushrooms and season with 1/8 tsp. of the salt. Cook 3 to 5 minutes on one side. Turn and cook until golden brown and crispy, 3 to 5 minutes more, stirring occasionally. Remove from the heat, and set aside. Repeat with the remaining oil, mushrooms, and salt.
Serve the mushrooms on a platter with the warm cheese dip, herb confetti, and crackers.
