Mushrooms stuffed with cheese and herbs and baked to perfection. This is one dish you’d love to repeat as an appetizer before dinner, an evening snack or as a complete meal (if you want to have something light and different).

Ingredients

  • Mushrooms                               18 small-medium
  • Shredded cheddar cheese           1 cup
  • Breadcrumbs                             1/2 cup
  • Minced Garlic cloves                  2
  • Olive oil                                     2 tablespoons
  • Ground pepper & Salt                 To taste
  • Parsley                                      1/4 cup
  • Thyme                                       1/8 cup
  • Oregano                                    1/8 cup
  • Sage leaves                                2

Procedure

  1. Preheat oven to 400F. Grease a baking dish with non-stick spray.
  2. Remove the mushroom stems and thoroughly clean them.
  3. Mince and combine the herbs (parsley, thyme, oregano and sage leaves) and keep the mix aside.
  4. In a large bowl, combine the shredded cheese, breadcrumbs, ½ cup of the minced herbs, minced garlic cloves, and olive oil. Mix well.
  5. Add salt and pepper if necessary (Cheddar cheese is salty so add only a little salt).
  6. Stuff each mushroom cap with 1-2 tablespoons of stuffing. Press it inside with your hands to make sure the stuffing doesn’t fall out.
  7. Arrange the mushrooms in the baking dish, and bake at 400 degrees F for 17-19 minutes, or until the mushrooms are cooked and the stuffing is melted and starting to turn golden on top.
  8. Serve hot.

Preparation Time: 30 minutes
