This is an appetizer I remember eating at many potlucks, family gatherings, and parties while growing up in NY state. Make sure you line the baking sheet with foil as these tend to ooze while baking. Adapted from "Best of the Best from New York Cookbook" by Quail Ridge Press.
- 20 large mushrooms
- 4 tablespoons butter or 4 tablespoons margarine
- 2 cloves garlic, chopped
- 2 tablespoons fresh parsley, finely chopped
- 1⁄4 cup parmesan cheese or 1⁄4 cup romano cheese, grated
- 1⁄2 cup italian seasoned dry bread crumb
- Wipe clean mushrooms with either a mushroom brush or a very slightly damp paper towel.
- Carefully remove stems from mushrooms and chop stems.
- Place butter and garlic into a heated skillet and let butter melt, stirring.
- Add chopped mushroom stems and saute until lightly brown.
- Add parsley,stir,and remove from heat.
- Add cheese and stir to combine.
- Add bread crumbs, stirring until mixture is crumbly.
- Lightly fill each mushroom cap with the sauteed mixture, but don't pack tightly.
- Set on a rimmed cookie sheet lined with foil and bake in a preheated oven at 350 F for about 20 minutes.
Heather, these mushrooms were yummy! Real mushroomy taste and easy too!I used small mushrooms, because that's all I could find. Still, turned out great! Thanks!
5 star all the way , seved these as part of my Sunday Brunch- I loved the crunch from the combination of the crumbs and the cheese. My mushrooms were very large (only one per person) and quite thick so I partially cooked them in the butter along with the garlic & mushroom stems, just browned the bottom and the tops before stuffing them. I sprinkled a little extra cheese on top for the last 5 minutes, under the broiler - but be careful they brown quickly.. Used fresh (this year's crop) garlic and Parmesan cheese. This is a winner thanks Heather Feather
Super awesome. Made a double batch last night for a party and the only change I made was I squirt some fresh lemon juice over them right before serving. Every single mushroom was gone in minutes.
