Stuffed Portabella Mushrooms

My husband and I are crazy about stuffed portabello mushrooms and have tried many recipes from Zaar. Last night, we came up with a version that does not cover up the taste of the mushroom. We love this with our grilled steak. Grilling the mushrooms for a short period of time really made a difference for us in this recipe. Hope you enjoy. Prep time is estimated.

Absolutely delicious! I subbed a couple tablespoons of Baco's to make them vegetarian. I will be making this again in the very near future :)

These were absolutely delicious!!! I folled the recipe exactly.....except --- I had 2 HUGE portobellos, used my own italian breadcrumbs, and I did NOT grill them before. I agree that next time I make them, I'll try grilling first. Even without, they were the BEST! Thanks Nimz for the great recipe :-)
