I don't remember what cookbook this is from. I think it was a compilation of restaurant recipes. These are excellent! They disappear everytime I make them. They are spicy so if you don't like heat, you can try making them without the red pepper flakes.
These are good for an everyday supper since they're so easily prepared, yet look no further of you want something elegant enough to present at a dinner party. This dish is nice served on a bed of pasta topped with Tomato Sauce.
This is an appetizer I remember eating at many potlucks, family gatherings, and parties while growing up in NY state. Make sure you line the baking sheet with foil as these tend to ooze while baking. Adapted from "Best of the Best from New York Cookbook" by Quail Ridge Press.
When I was first married and hosting my first family Christmas Eve celebration at my home, this was one of the appetizers I prepared. That was almost 20 years ago and my family still requests them each year. They're my 86-yr. old Grandmother's favorite! Very easy to prepare and I've never had any leftover. Can be prepared ahead of time and baked just before serving. Try them and enjoy!
Every time I try another stuffed mushroom recipe, I return to this one because of its different and delicious taste and ease in making. My family jokes when I return to my old stand-by saying, "These are the bestest!"
I've been making them for 25 years now (since I was 3 -- ha-ha!)
At my house, we don't like those fried mushrooms that are black and slimy where the breading slides easily off. This recipe is just a very crisp breading on a fresh mushroom. They'll 'pop' when you cut into them they are so fresh. Panko breadcrumbs are a polished bread crumb that you can find in an Asian market or the International section of your favorite food store and they make just a wonderful crunchier coating, too.
