Easy Stuffed Mushrooms Recipe
Savory, creamy a little spicy and completely delicious – I’m sharing this recipe with my Mom in mind. Mom loves mushrooms. Sautéed, stuffed or in a salad – doesn’t matter, I think mushrooms are her very favorite food!
Mom is also my best friend – we giggle and laugh, collaborate and commiserate. She has been strength when I need it and tough when it’s time to dry those tears and move forward. Family is everything, don’t you agree?
I am SO LUCKY to have both of my folks in my life and be have such a great relationship with them! I don’t know what I’d do without either one. Did you know they proof every blog before it goes out? Every single time they find something. Even when I’m sure I’ve went over it six times with a fine-tooth comb. They still call me and say Debbie I found something that needs correcting…
I’m sure they will find something in this one too, but I’m winging it! Because I can’t ask my folks to proofread a post that’s about them, right? 😀
Anyway, let’s get back to these mushrooms. Mom will love them. They are fabulous! Savory, creamy and a tiny bit spicy.
I will make them when they visit next – Mom will be happy I’m sure!
Let me show you how easy stuffed mushrooms are to make.
You’ll start by dicing an onion, one stalk of celery and the stems of the mushroom, mince some garlic and into the skillet it goes with a few spices for just five minutes. Take it off the heat and allow it to cool.
Next up – prepare the stuffing. Sausage, egg, a couple of cheeses (because we can never have too much cheese, right?!!!) and breadcrumbs. Mix this together with the sautéed veggies, stuff everything into mushrooms (in this recipe I recommend large button mushrooms – I used the brown ones as I think they have more flavor) and bake it off in the oven. Finish under the broiler.
Mom – what do you think, dinner when you guys visit? She said yes, I’m sure of it!
How fabulous do these look? Are you ready to get cooking?
Here’s the recipe!
