First you take the stem off the mushrooms and chop them up into small pieces for the recipe. The bottom photo is what the stuffing for the mushrooms should look like.
These are the stuffed mushrooms laid out on a tray. Please remember that when mushrooms are cooked they shrink.
I hope you try this recipe for Stuffed Mushrooms because it's the perfect appetizer or they can be served on the side with dinner.
STUFFED MUSHROOM RECIPE
1/2 cup Italian bread crumbs
1/2 cup grated cheese
4 garlic cloves, peeled and minced
2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley or dried parsley
salt and pepper to taste
1/3 cup olive oil
28 large white mushrooms - stemmed & mushroom stems chopped up
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Stir the bread crumbs, grated cheese, garlic, parsley, salt and pepper, olive oil, and mushroom stems in a medium bowl and blend. Spray a baking sheet with cooking spray (such as PAM). Fill the mushroom cavities with the stuffing and arrange on a baking sheet, cavity side up. Drizzle remaining olive oil on top of each mushroom. Bake until the mushrooms are tender and the filling is heated through for about 25 minutes. To tell if done, place a knife or fork in the middle of mushroom to see if it slides through easily. Serve.
