Not-Strictly Stuffed Mushrooms

READY IN: 50mins
Recipe by amygdala

This is taken from the Not-Strictly Vegetarian Cookbook-- I remember someone making these and passing the recipe on to me. The secret is using real butter; I've never attempted using margarine with this recipe (you shouldn't either) ha!

These were absolutely wonderful, juicy and savory.. Needed a tad bit more seasoning (just my taste). A small bit of work but well worth it!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Melt 3 tablespoons butter in microwave or in a pan on stovetop.
  3. Wash mushrooms well and remove stems (do not discard stems).
  4. Place mushroom caps on cookie sheet tops up and Liberally brush or drizzle butter on each one. (liberal brushing is better as opposed to Conservative drizzling).
  5. Place in oven and don't forget they're in there (check after 5 minutes or so). When golden, set aside.
  6. Meanwhile, chop mushroom stems and onions. (Don't process; if so, make sure mixture is coarse).
  7. Heat skillet with remaining 2 tablespoons butter and sautee mushroom stems, pressed garlic and onion until onion is translucent. (don't burn garlic).
  8. Add parsley, basil and bread crumbs.
  9. Mix well (should be a bit dry).
  10. Add sour cream and mix well.
  11. Turn over caps and fill with mixture; I like to sprinkle a touch of paprika over them.
  12. Bake in oven until done-- I'd check in 8 minutes.
