Lightbulb REC: Stuffed Mushrooms

I'm serving this tomorrow as an appetizer..I would think it could also be used as a side dish too.

Stuffed Mushrooms

1/2-C Zante currants
1/2-C pine nuts
2-handfuls fresh chopped Italian parsley
4-med. cloves minced garlic
1-med. leek, minced fine
I-lb. sweet Italian sausage, Hot would be fine also
1/2-C. grated pecorino
1/2-C grated Parmesan I used fresh grated with both cheeses
EVOO-I used about a 1/4 cup
1/2-C seasoned bread crumbs
kosher grind salt and fresh ground coarse black pepper
24-med button mushrooms.

When I stuff mushrooms, I usually find I have way too much stuffing, so, using a melon baller I scoop out the mushrooms to make them deeper and hold more.

Saute the mushroom stems and scooped out mushroom pieces in a little evoo then mix them into the other ingredients..I then just stuff the mushrooms. Cook them for about 20 min. in a 375 oven.

You can also cook the cooked mushroom mixture, mix with everything else, stuff the uncooked caps and keep in fridge until the next day.

If you try...ENJOY

Another stuffed mushroom recipe

Those sound great, Kadesma! I'll try that one next time. Sometimes we get a good buy on big button mushroom's at Sam's.

Here's the way I prepared mine last Thanksgiving, and they were very tasty.

C's Stuffed Mushrooms

Ingredients:
1/2 cup+ fine bread crumbs
1/2 cup ripe olives, chopped
1/2 cup diced ham
4 cloves garlic, finely minced
1/4 cup fresh Italian parsley, chopped
1/2 cup parmesan cheese, grated
1 egg, beaten
olive oil
28 large mushrooms

Directions:
Make bread crumbs in food processor out of sliced, toasted Italian bread. Wipe mushrooms off with a paper towel, remove stems (reserve) and scoop out with a melon baller. (great minds run in the same channels, Kadesma!)
Toss the mushrooms in olive oil, sprinkle with garlic/herb seasoning (I used Tone's), or your own mix of spices. Place in foil-lined cookie sheet, and set aside.
Chop stems finely, and saute in a little olive oil till almost tender. Add garlic, and continue coooking until tender. Remove tobowl and add first six ingredients. Mix well, add beaten egg, and mix again. Stuff mushroom caps generously, pressing stuffing in with fingers.
Drizzle tops with a little olive oil and bake in preheated 400 degree oven till heated through and golden on top, about 25 minutes, depending on size of mushrooms.

Another good one to add as a side dish to your next Italian dinner is to stuff your mushrooms with a pesto/Parmesan mix, and top them with a few sprinkles of Parmesan, and bake on 375 for about 15 minutes. Very quick and easy, and they make a great appetizer.

Just noticed this post. Haven't tried this one yet, but sounds mighty good. BTW, Kadesma, your recipe (& all of the recipes here) look terrif. Kadesma, what are Zante currants?


Portobello Shrimp Stuffed Mushrooms
Makes 4 appetizer servings

4 medium portobello mushrooms (about 1 pound)
2 tablespoons butter or margarine
1 medium onion, finely chopped (1/2 cup)
4 cloves garlic, minced
8 ounces peeled, deveined, and cooked shrimp, chopped
1/2 cup soft bread crumbs
1 egg, slightly beaten
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1 teaspoon snipped fresh tarragon
1 ounce Gouda or provolone cheese, shredded (optional)
Peeled, deveined, and cooked shrimp (optional)
Fresh parsley sprigs (optional)

1. Preheat oven to 425 degree F. Wipe mushrooms with a clean, damp cloth or rinse lightly and dry gently with paper towels. Cut mushroom stems flush with caps. Chop enough of the stems to make 1/2 cup; set aside.

2. In a large skillet, melt butter or margarine over medium heat. Cook onion, garlic, and chopped mushroom stems in hot butter for 6 to 8 minutes or until tender. Cool slightly. Stir in chopped shrimp, bread crumbs, egg, lemon juice, and tarragon.

3. Place portobello caps, stem sides up, in a 15x10x1-inch baking pan. Sprinkle mushrooms with cheese, if desired. Divide shrimp mixture among portobello caps. Bake, uncovered, about 15 minutes or until mushrooms are tender. To serve, garnish with additional whole shrimp and parsley, if desired. Cut into quarters, if desired.
