good flavor in this recipe but something was amiss. i'll omit the lime juice next time and maybe throw in a drop of worcheshire instead. i stuffed the filling into two huge portabello mushrooms, sprinkled the cheese on top and popped it into the oven: 375 degrees for 15 minutes.
A lovely side dish! I used 6 very large portabello mushrooms and omitted the wine as I didn't have any. We thought the mushrooms were very flavourful. Thanks for the great recipe!
I have used these recipe many times and they just rock! Love the fact that it's not all BREAD crumbs and stems! Last weekend I had a party and tried to make them ahead (1 day) and they turned out perfect! What I did was toss the mushroom caps in olive oil and S&P, put them in a 350 oven and roasted for 5/8 minutes. I then turned the caps upside down to drain.. and when cooled stuffed them. Put them in a tin roasting pan, covered and kept in the frig. The next evening, I took them out - let them stand at room temp. for 10 - 15 min. then baked at 350 for 15 mins. My guests were awed and commented on them being the best - the bacon added to the flavor but the kicker was the wine - very subtle. (I also doubled the recipe) Had only 5 leftover and tonight reheated for hubby. I actually liked them made ahead. Flavors mellowed.
Make sure to cook your mushrooms slowly and long enough. Mine turned out to hard and the ones that did cook through fell apart.
Flavorwise, excellent. I'd give it five stars. However, I found that this only made enough for 16 mushrooms, and I didn't use huge ones, nor did I overfill them. Next time, I'll double the stuffing recipe!
Yummy! Didn't understand the previous comments re lime juice??? Very easy recipe and very effective. I used Parmesan cheese instead of the Monterey Jack, and it was very effective. Tricia M
This was so good! We used large mushrooms and diced the stems. It came out so good. Thanks for sharing.
I used your recipe last night and too my amazment, even the kids liked it & they are not mushroom fans...I used my own home made left over dinner rolls for the breadcrums with all ingrediants from your recipe and only added a tiny bit of paprika...they were very good! This will be an on going recipe in my house from now on... Thak you!
THese were great! They were gone so fast I only got to eat one!
