A local restaurant serves these and the waitress offered the recipe! I have made these at home several times and they are DH's favorite way to eat portabellas. Amounts are not given as everything depends on your taste and how many mushrooms that you have to serve.
Mushroom with fresh sage and thyme.
Enjoy over slices of crisp french bread,top a steak or toss into a bowl of spinach to slighly wilt and enjoy as a salad or toss into pasta adding some extra virgin olive oil.
Love rich, creamy stuffed mushrooms, but can't stand all those unecessary calories? These great stuffed mushrooms are high in flavor and low in calories. They also make great appetizers for parties and elegant dinners.
Fresh sage leaves make this a memorable dish. Use about 1/2 tsp dried sage if fresh is not available. Serve this on its own or use it in a hamburger bun. Other condoments should not be necessary as this has a pretty intense flavour on its own.
This is just a template, really--you can use any kind of bread/cheese/veggie combo that you like. I made this and it was delightful--the bottom of the bread was crusty and the part touching the vegetables was moist--YUM! Out-of-this world with a bowl of soup.
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
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 came across this recipe a few years ago when I was on low carb diet. It can be a meal or nice as a side with grilled steak instead of a baked potato. I have also cut in halves or quarters to serve as an appetizer. This recipe can be halved or doubled easily. Hope you try and enjoy!
