I haven’t posted in a while. Honestly, I have more literal time lately to post, but less mental space. Ever feel that way? This baby is crowding my brain and I’m still cooking all the time, but honestly, I’m cooking a bunch of repeats or things I don’t find particularly photo-worthy, so I just haven’t been shooting my food lately! I did make this fabulous little side dish last week and we all agreed that it was better than the main dish (which I can’t remember – case in point). So I’m sharing it with you! I took little baby portobello mushrooms and tossed the stems in a food processor along with a bunch of other like-minded ingredients to form a great filling for stuffed mushrooms! The kid tried “one happy bite” and that’s all we ask these days. She has her comfort foods and right now, mushrooms isn’t one of them! But that’s okay…I keep in mind that what kids observe, they’ll eventually imitate. And she definitely observes people who enjoy pretty much every food on the map. Trust the system, trust the system…
Mushroom Stuffed Mushrooms
12-15 baby portobello mushrooms, stems removed and reserved
1 ounce extra sharp white cheddar, grated
1 tsp garlic oil or olive oil
1 garlic clove
4 tbs breadcrumbs
2 strips cooked bacon with drippings
1 tsp worchestershire sauce
1 tbs dijon mustard
a splash of chicken stock
Wipe the mushrooms with a paper towel and set in a greased baking dish, side by side. Dump the stems of the mushrooms and all the other ingredients into a food processor and pulse until smooth. Adjust seasoning with salt or pepper and extra chicken stock if it’s too thick. The consistency for mine was like a pate or bean dip. Top the mushrooms with the filling and pile it high. Top with extra shredded cheese and a drizzle of olive oil and bake at 350F for 20-25 minutes, or until the tops are golden brown and puffed up slightly. Enjoy!
These look divine. I adore mushrooms of any kind, especially stuffed ones.
Me too! I’m the mushroom lover in my family so I get the bulk 🙂
