Try these. We normally make the three together when we have a grazing party.

Mushrooms with Crab Meat Stuffing
appetizers-mushroom
1 1/2 cups lump crab meat, fresh or frozen; flaked & shredded
2 tablespoons butter
4 tablespoons shallots or; finely chopped
4 tablespoons scallions; finely chopped
1 cup bechamel sauce
lemon juice; to taste
sea salt; to taste
white pepper; to taste
18-24 large mushroom caps (2 inch); stems removed

Instructions:

Champignons Farcis Au Crabe
Preheat oven to 350°F.
Carefully inspect crab meat and remove any bits of cartilage, then shred lumps with a fork. In a heavy 8 to 10 inch skillet, melt 2 tablespoons butter over moderate heat and cook shallots (or scallions), stirring constantly, for 2 minutes or until they are soft. Stir in the crab meat and
toss it with the shallots for 10 seconds or so. With a rubber spatula, transfer the mixture to a large bowl.
Stir in the bechamel sauce, then season to taste with lemon juice, sea salt and white pepper. Lightly butter a shallow baking dish or roasting pan large enough to hold the mushrooms in one layer. Sprinkle the inside of the
caps with salt, spoon in the filling and arrange the caps in the pan. Bake in the upper third of the oven for 10 to 15 minutes, or until the mushrooms are tender when pierced with a sharp knife and the filling is bubbly. Serve on a heated platter.
Serves 6.


Mushrooms with Spinach Stuffing
appetizers-mushroom
1/2 cup shallots or; finely chopped
1/2 cup scallions; finely chopped
3 tablespoons butter
3/4 cup fresh spinach or; firmly packed
1 package (10 oz) frozen spinach; thawed & chopped
3/4 cup boiled ham; finely chopped
1 cup bechamel sauce
sea salt; to taste
freshly ground black pepper; to taste
18-24 large mushroom caps (2 inch); stems removed
2 tablespoons butter; cut into small pieces

Add the spinach and toss it with the shallots for 3 to 4 minutes. With a rubber spatula, transfer the mixture to a large bowl.
Stir in the ham and the bechamel sauce and season to taste with salt and pepper. Lightly butter a shallow baking dish or roasting pan large enough to hold the mushrooms in one layer. Sprinkle the inside of the caps with salt, spoon in the filling; arrange the caps in the pan and dot them with
butter. Bake in the upper third of the oven for 10 to 15 minutes, or until the mushrooms are tender when pierced with a sharp knife and the filling is lightly browned. Serve on a heated platter.

1 can Mascarpone

1 can cream cheese with french herbs
1 can cream
1 can grated parmesan cheese
1 can chopped fresh herbs

clean the mushrooms and get of the base (whatever you call it, I hope you know what I mean ) sprinkle with a mix of the wine, half of the lemonjuice and the worcestersauce.
Season with salt & Pepper
saute the ham, add the onions and the mashed garlic and saute for a short time.
chop the dandelionleafs chunky (?), add to the ham and saute with.
take off the heat an fold in the mascarpone, season with lemonjuice, wine, worcestersauce, salt & pepper.
fill the mushroom heads.
get some pieces of alufoil and spread wih oliveoil,
place the mushroom on and fold.
put on a grill.

Mix the creamcheese with cream and lemonjuice, add the herbs, season with wine, worcestersauce, salt & pepper.

Licia, of course they are.. but you have the advantage of translating in your native language.....
there are so many words that are so specific my translators doesn't know... or it suggests me about 20 possibilities and I don't know which oine to use....

You do a very good job, Cara...your recipes are quite understandable, as well as delicious.

Here's a recipe I worked out that's very tasty...I'd like to try some of y'all's recipes too. I really like the idea of the Provelone topping, Erik.

Connie’s Stuffed Mushrooms

1-2 cups plus fine bread crumbs
1/2 cup ripe olives, chopped
1/2 cup diced ham or hard salami
4 cloves garlic, finely diced
1/4 cup fresh Italian parsley, chopped
!/2 cup parmesan cheese, grated
S&P
1 egg, beaten
olive oil
25 large mushrooms

Make breadcrumbs in food processor out of sliced, toasted Italian bread. Wipe mushrooms off with paper towel, and stem by scooping with a melon baller. Chop stems finely, and sauté in 1-2 tbls olive oil until almost tender. Add garlic, and continue cooking till tender. Remove to bowl and add first six ingredients, mix well; add beaten egg and mix again. Stuff mushroom caps, pressing stuffing in with fingers. Place on large baking sheet, drizzle with olive oil, and bake in preheated 400 degree oven until heated through and golden on top...about 25 minutes.

Cheddar Stuffed Mushrooms

24 Mushrooms – Large
6 Tb Butter
1/2 C Walnuts, minced
1/2 C Parsley, minced
1 Onion, minced
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.
