It’s No. 3 of my 100 000 Hits Celebration. Today I want to share with you the recipe for my famous Stuffed Mushrooms. I have to tell you that people love these, and they are always the first thing to go at a party.
- 24 button mushrooms
- 1/2 onion
- 2 garlic cloves, minced
- 1/2 cup butter
- 3 tbsp. grated parmesan cheese
- 1/2 cup bread crumbs
- salt and pepper
- 1/2 tsp. thyme
Wash the mushrooms, and remove the stems.
Set the caps aside. Cut the onion and mushroom stems very finely.
Melt the butter in a frying pan.
Sautee the onions, mushrooms, and garlic until the onion is transparent.
Add cheese, and breadcrumbs (I said 1/2 cup, but you may need a bit more, I do it by eye, but you can add until the melted butter is absorbed).
Add thyme, and salt and pepper to taste.
Then, stuff your mushroom caps using a small spoon.
Put stuffed mushrooms in a baking dish. At this stage you can cover with plastic wrap and refrigerated for a few hours until party time. A variation is to leave the parmesan cheese out of the stuffing, and instead top each mushroom with a small slice of Swiss cheese. Both versions are delicious.
Bake at 350, for about 20 minutes or until brown and tender. Serve warm.
Everyone loved these, and if you give them a try I’m sure you will too. Life is a party with stuffed mushrooms around!
