Adapted from the South Beach Diet cookbook, because theirs were boring and weird. Presumably, one could customize the toppings extensively. I did make one batch with sun-dried tomatoes, however, and I don't recommend that at all -- too sweet.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Coat caps lightly in olive oil.

  3. Bake gills-down at 400F for about 15 minutes.
  4. Pull 'em out of the oven and flip 'em over.
  5. Add a teaspoon of pesto to each cap and spread it around.

  7. Pop 'em back in the oven until the cheddar gets golden-brown.
