Make these lower fat by using reduced fat sour cream and cream cheese ---to save time and to blend the flavors even more, prepare the filling in advance and chill for 8 hours or overnight --- You may use about 1/2 teaspoon dried basil or oregano in place of fresh, or just omit the herbs completely --- these are *very* good I have made them many times in the past :)
I was searching for a good stuffed mushroom recipe that we could have for a main meal. I couldn't find one that really tickled my tastebuds so I made this one up and I was really pleased with the results. They were delicious!
Recipe states that traditional kung pao's are spicy and sweet.....but this is milder. If you want the heat, add more pepper flakes or fresh chilies like serranos. Also says you can sub shiitakes or even big button mushrooms.
The balsamic marinade that you paint on these mushrooms adds another dimension of flavor. The stuffing isquick & easy to make.. Have these as appetizers, brunch side dish, for lunch or a dinner party. Great on a buffet table too. This recipe is adapted from one that was in the July 06 Bon Appetit magazine. These mushrooms may also be baked 20 minutes at 350F
