Who can resist stuffed cheesy mushrooms! Their earthy rich flavor make it a fav appetizer at any celebration! My daughter is especially fond of them…so this time around, I had her make them too! 🙂

Method:
Wash and dry large button mushrooms by gently rubbing them with soft paper towel.
image
Remove the thick stems and reserve caps. Chop the stems finely

Also finely chop some onions and chillies(optional)
image
Heat oil and sauté the chopped onions, chillies and mushroom stems for 2-3 minutes. Add salt, pepper, crushed red pepper and oregano.
image
Transfer to a bowl and cool to room temperature.
image
To make filling add equal quantity of shredded cheese to the mix.
image
Sprinkle mushroom caps lightly with salt n pepper.
image
Tightly pack mushroom caps with the mushroom cheese filling.
image
Next mix bread crumbs with some melted butter.
image
Top the filled mushrooms with a thin layer of the bread crumbs.
image
Arranged the stuffed mushroom caps on a foil lined greased baking tray.
image
Finally garnish with flat thinly sliced garlic.
image
Bake in a 425 degree Oven for 15-20 minutes (time will vary slightly depending on the size of the mushrooms)
image
Transfer to serving platter.
Garnish with chopped herbs…I used chives.
Serve warm!

PS: Notice the absence of excessive butter and cheese…as is the case of stuffed mushrooms, commonly served in Italian Restaurants….a most off putting sight!!
