Stuffed Mushrooms


Stuffed Mushrooms

Stuffed mushrooms is a quick appetizer or snack. It is a perfect addition to an appetizer tray for a get together. I have used a very simple stuffing but there are endless options both vegetarian and non vegetarian that can be used for the filling.

Ingredients
Mushrooms- 12 medium sized
Cream cheese- 2 tbs
Grated  cheese- 1/3 cup
I used both Parmesan and mozzarella cheese) 
Italian style bread crumbs- 1/3 cup
Shallot finely chopped- 2
garlic- 2 cloves
Pepper powder-a pinch
Cajun spice mix- a dash (optional)
Chopped parsley/coriander- 2 tbs
salt to taste
Extra virgin olive oil

Preheat oven to 375 degree F.
Hold mushrooms under running water and using a damp cloth gently scrub the  top and snap out the stem (do not discard,chop finely and add to the filling) and using a spoon gently scrap and make it a perfect cavity for the filling.
Heat one tsp of oil and saute garlic, shallot and mushroom stems till it is soft.
In a bowl mix well cream cheese, cheese,bread crumbs, coriander and parsley leaves,pepper, salt and the saute mushroom stems along with the seasoning. Drizzle a few drops of olive oil and mix till well combined.
Grease baking sheet with olive oil. Take spoon full of mixture and fill into the mushroom cavities. Arrange on the baking sheet,with the filling facing upwards and drizzle a few drops of olive oil on each mushroom. Bake till you attain the golden crust for about 20 minutes. Serve warm
