Ready In:




  • Remove stalks from mushrooms and stuff with cottage cheese until level with the top and sprinkle a little ground pepper over the top.
  • Cook on an oiled BBQ plate with hood down but away from direct heat - so well to the side of of a burner that is turned on. Pick the coolest spot in your BBQ.
  • In around 20-30 minutes you should see the top of the mushrooms turning soft and dark in color, they are ready to serve at that point.

    Love the ease and simplicity! I had some quark on hand (European cottage cheese to use up) and this was perfect! Next time I can see myself adding roasted red capsicum or speck! Thanks Peter J! Made as part of the AUS/NZ May Recipe Swap!

    I make these all the time - they are so tasty the only difference is that I sprinkle on some hot chili flakes and usually do them in the toaster oven - heat set at 375, uncovered for apprx 20 minutes or until the cottage cheese is all bubbly and starting to brown- Thanks for reminding me to make these again Thanks for posting PeterJ 24 May 09 Made these again I had forgotten how good they are Mmmm 5 April 2010 Yep made them again - this time I had some left over chopped Jalapenos so I mixed them into the Cottage cheese Mmmmmmm- Lovely - I used very large brown mushrooms. And yet again 23 May 10 This time I chopped a roasted garlic clove in each mushroom cap and sprinkled Adobo spice on top Love these cottage cheese stuffed muchroom

    Wasn't sure what to expect, but wanted to try because they sounded healthy. My only complaint is that I didn't make enough! Couldn't wait, so I started sampling them while they were on the grill, and there weren't many left when they finally were done. Have more mushrooms in the fridge, so will be making again this week. Melt in your mouth fantastic!

    Peter, these are excellent. I should have made more as Dave and I are fighting over the last one! Tonight I sprinkled my mushrooms with a bit of garlic salt, covered with cottage cheese and then sprinkled the top with cayenne pepper. It's still a bit cool to be cooking outside so I cooked in the oven. Will definitely be making these again very soon.


<p>I live close Hobart in Tasmania, a wonderful part of Australia but a little chilly in winter so be sure to book your holiday for summer! I'm self-employed in the embedded electronics area and being at home most of the day gives me plenty of time to prepare those recipes with long preparation and cooking times. As most of my clients are either interstate or overseas I get to occasionally catch up with them and enjoy their local restaurants, always nice to have someone else paying the bills! <br /> <br />As well as food I'm partial to the odd beer &amp; wine, so often like to go to a local pub and catch some local bands. No need for an alarm clock in the morning, my cat Molly likes her breakfast at 8:00AM sharp and makes an effective alarm! Lately I've been starting to get into some digital photography so you might be seeing a few additional recipe shots on Zaar... <br /> <br /><a href=> <br /><img src= alt= /></a></p>
