Andy M - those sound good! Ironically enough, I was planning on making stuffed mushrooms tonight! Have you ever used dried bread crumbs?

Yes.. you are right Cara!! It is so much more difficult to translate something to a foreign language or explain something in a foreign language, and you do it so well!! And we all appreciate your effort so much!!

They are very good. If I make too many for an appetizer, guests pig out and then don't want dinner!

Dry bread crumbs should work OK.

These are great! This is my signature stuffed mushrooms recipe. You can add bacon, too, if you're not feeding any vegetarians.

Stuffed Mushrooms

30 Whole fresh mushrooms
4 Tablespoon butter, melted
1 Tablespoon lemon juice
1 Tablespoon vegetable oil
1 Tablespoon minced garlic
1 8-oz pkg cream cheese, softened
1/4 Cup grated Parmesan cheese
1/4 Teaspoon ground black pepper
1/4 Teaspoon onion powder
1/4 Teaspoon ground cayenne pepper
1 Tablespoon chives
Italian bread crumbs

Instructions: Preheat oven to 350º.

Clean mushrooms & discard stems. Toss mushrooms in butter & lemon juice. Set aside.

Heat oil in large skillet over medium heat. Add garlic & lightly fry, taking care not to burn it. Turn off heat.

Add remaining ingredients to garlic & stir until well mixed. When mixture is cool enough to handle, place it in a zip-loc bag.

Arrange mushrooms on baking sheet. Cut off small corner of bag - make hole just large enough to squeeze mixture into mushroom caps. Fill each cap. Sprinkle with bread crumbs.

Bake for 20 minutes or until mushrooms are hot & tops are starting to get lightly browned.

1 C Shredded Sharp Cheddar (About 4 oz.)
1/4 C Grated Romano Cheese
1/2 C Fresh Bread Crumbs
TT S & P


Preheat oven to 350° F.

Remove the stems from the mushrooms and mince the stems.

Melt the butter and brush the mushroom caps with some of the butter. Arrange caps, stemmed sides up, on a large baking sheet.

Lightly toast the walnuts.

In a large heavy skillet, sauté the parsley and onion with the chopped stems in remaining butter until the mixture is softened.

Remove skillet from heat and stir in remaining ingredients.

Divide the mixture among the mushroom caps, mounding the stuffing slightly.

Mushrooms may be stuffed 4 hours in advance. Store covered in the refrigerator.

Bake mushrooms in middle of the oven for 30 minutes.
I made these tonight - magnificent! Thanks Andy M!

Your recipe sounds great, Andy. I like the idea of brushing the mushroom caps with butter.
I don't care for nuts in my stuffing though...wonder what I could use instead?
