In my last post i shared how i ended up making bread crumbs and eventually made some yummy stuffed mushrooms. So thats my next recipe.
I personally love mushrooms a lot on its own, in soups and along with other veggies. I know few of my friends who don't enjoy it as much as i do. But stuffed mushrooms is something very different and i think everyone can enjoy it as a snack or as an appetizer. Its easy to prepare and is ready in less than 45 mins. The recipe here is inspired by Laura Vitale.
This is what you will need:
1 pound of button mushrooms
1 to 1 1/2 cups of bread crumbs (store bought or homemade)
1/2 cup to 1 cup of grated mozerella cheese (you can use any cheese of your choice)
1 to 2 cloves of finely grated or minced garlic
1 tbsp of chopped coriander leaves or parsley leaves
1 tsp of oregano
1/2 tsp of pepper
1 tsp of olive oil or as required
Salt to taste
Wash and clean the mushrooms. Remove the stems of the mushrooms. Do not throw them away they are completely edible. Chop the stems and keep them aside.
Scope out insides of the mushrooms a bit to create small pockets for the stuffing.
Next for the stuffing, which is the easy part. Mix the bread crumbs, along with the chopped mushroom stems, cheese, garlic, oregano, pepper, 1/2 tsp of olive oil, coriander leaves and salt.
And finally fill the mushrooms with the stuffing. On a baking sheet brushed with olive oil, line the mushrooms. For the final touch sprinkle the rest of the olive oil over the stuffed mushrooms so that they are nice and browned while cooking. Bake them on a preheated oven at 400F for about 15-20mins until the stuffing is nice and golden brown.
Sorry if there are any shaky pictures, its really tough to take snaps while your hands are all greasy :P.
Thats all. Easy and yummy stuffed mushrooms are ready to be served.
