I opted to use all the mushroom stems and cut back on the breading. I added 4 crispy chopped bacon. I baked on the bacon fat! Used yellow pepper and red onion. Thanks!! ;)
I made these last weekend for a last minute dinner party. They were gone in a flash. So simple to make and all I had to purchase were the mushrooms - had everything else on hand. I substituted red bell pepper for the green due to my DHs preference, but would be good with either. I also increased the black pepper a bit. What a keeper! Thank you Wildflour.
This is the first of my PAC recipes to make. I had a 2 lb package of huge mushrooms so I went ahead and used them all. I increased the onion, used 3/4 of a whole Texas sweet. My daughter and I do not like bell peppers so I left them out and substituted 1/2 t Tony's Creole and 1/2 t garlic powder. Used the 1/12 c of Italian Seasoned dried breadcrumbs and left out the turmeric. These were very easy and pretty quick to make. They were a little bland for my family's taste, may be because the peppers were not used. I will make these again and again but I will increase the amount of garlic and Tony's I put in the filling. Thanks so much for the recipe!
