MONDAY IN THE KITCHEN
EASY CHEESY STUFFED MUSHROOMS
This morning on The Kitchen page the boys made some Nice & Easy Cheese Stuffed Mushrooms.
These cheese and garlic stuffed mushrooms are simple to put together and easy to adapt to your favorite cheese. A combination of cheeses is a great idea, too!
We have added a recipe below, Please note this may be an adaptation to what Brad & Sam created.
IF YOU FANCY HAVING A GO YOURSELF HERE'S THE RECIPE
READY IN: 25 Minutes
PORTIONS: 20 Stuffed Mushroom Caps
20 white button or cremini mushrooms (about 10 ounces)
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 tablespoon butter
1/2 cup chopped onion (half medium onion)
2 tablespoons minced garlic (4 to 5 cloves)
2 teaspoons chopped fresh rosemary or thyme, see notes for parsley
2 ounces shredded cheese like sharp cheddar, mozzarella, Swiss or a combination
3 tablespoons breadcrumbs (use panko or regular breadcrumbs)
Salt and fresh ground black pepper
1 tablespoon chopped fresh parsley or chives for serving, optional
1.Heat oven to 375 degrees F.
2.Using a damp paper towel, brush all dirt from mushrooms. Remove the mushroom stems. Cut away and discard any hard bits of the stems then finely mince them.
3.Add the mushroom caps to a rimmed baking sheet or large oven-safe skillet that fits the mushrooms in one layer. Toss them with a tablespoon of olive oil and lightly season with fresh ground black pepper. Arrange them cavity-side-up so that they are ready to be stuffed.
4.Melt butter in a skillet over medium heat. Add the onions and chopped mushroom stalks, and a pinch of salt. Cook, occasionally stirring, until the onions smell sweet and are soft, about 5 minutes. Add the garlic and herbs, then cook, stirring, for 2 minutes. Scrape mixture into a bowl and set aside to cool.
5.Add the breadcrumbs to the same skillet that the onions and mushrooms were cooked in. Place them over medium-low heat, and then cook, stirring, until they are lightly toasted; about one minute.
6.Stir the cheese into the onions and garlic mixture then divide the filling between the mushroom caps. Sprinkle the toasted breadcrumbs on top. Bake the mushrooms until the cheese has melted and the mushrooms have softened; 15 to 20 minutes. Serve with chopped fresh herbs and a bit of fresh ground black pepper on top.
