Most of what you bake at home has so much more flavorful than any you might order at restaurants — and cost a lot less money. That’s especially true of the stuffed mushroom recipe you’re about to read.
The recipe doesn’t take a lot of time — just 25 minutes and all but five of them are oven time — and you can make it up to two days before you need to serve them.
This recipe makes enough for 12 people, so you can serve them as appetizers at a dinner party or make them a snack at a get-together.
12 whole fresh mushrooms or portobellos
1 tablespoon vegetable oil
1 tablespoon minced garlic
1 package (8 ounces) of cream cheese, softened
1/4 cup of grated or shredded parmesan cheese
1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
1/4 teaspoon onion powder
1/4 teaspoon ground cayenne pepper
Stuffed Mushroom Recipe — Directions
1. Preheat oven to 350° F. Spray a baking sheet with cooking spray.
2. Clean mushrooms with a damp paper towel. Carefully break off the stems. Chop the stems extremely fine, discarding the tough end of the stems. You can also use a food processor and pulse the stems until they are minced.
3. Heat vegetable oil in a large skillet over medium heat.
4. Add garlic and then the chopped mushroom stems to the skillet. Fry them until any moisture has disappeared, taking care not to burn the garlic. Set it aside to cool.
5. When the garlic and mushroom mixture is no longer hot, mix in the cream cheese, parmesan, black pepper, onion powder and cayenne pepper. The resulting mixture should be very thick.
6. Before filling in the mushroom caps, brush the outsides with oil to prevent them from drying out.
7. Using a little spoon, fill each mushroom cap with a generous amount of stuffing. Arrange the mushroom caps on prepared cookie sheet.
8. Bake for 20 minutes in the oven, or until the mushrooms are piping hot and liquid starts to form under the caps.
Quick tip: You can also use aluminum foil to keep the food moist, cook it evenly, and make clean-up easier.
