Stuffed Mushrooms

I have always loved stuffed mushrooms. Use this culinary masterpiece as either a great side dish or appetizer.  

These Stuffed Mushrooms are an excellent Italian Recipe
Don't these look delicious!   They are....  Stuffed Mushrooms are the best!

·         10 large white or medium Portobello mushrooms
·         3 - 4 cloves garlic, minced
·         1 cup Italian breadcrumbs
·         ¼ cup of grated parmesan cheese
·         ¼ cup chopped fresh herbs of your choice: Basil, Oregano,  Parsley
·         2 tablespoons butter
·         1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
1.   Wash the mushrooms well and pull the stems off of the caps. Reserve the stems.
2.   Chop the stems into small pieces.
3.   In a frying pan, sauté the chopped stems and garlic in butter and oil. Don’t burn the garlic!
4.   Add the herbs and breadcrumbs.  Mix together and cook until breadcrumbs start to brown. Remove from heat and cool.
5.   Mix the parmesan cheese into the breadcrumb mixture.
6.   Coat pan with some olive oil and place mushroom caps in pan. Drizzle mushrooms with some olive oil and fill with breadcrumb mixture.
7.   Top each mushroom with a small amount of butter.
8.   Bake at 350˚ for about 10-15 minutes .
Enjoy hot!   As a variation to this awesome recipe, top cooked stuffed mushrooms with a spoonful of marinara sauce and add some shredded mozzarella. Place under broiler until cheese melts and serve.
I hope you enjoy these stuffed mushrooms!  They are so easy to make and a great addition to your Italian recipe collection...
