a little treat

As I may have mentioned a time or two before, I love mushrooms.

Love them.

When stuffed mushrooms are on a menu, I am compelled, as though by an otherworldly force, to order them.

Sometimes, they are divine.  And sometimes, they are not.

When I first met the man, he said that he had the best recipe ever for Stuffed Mushrooms.  I was skeptical.  But it turns out, he was pretty spot on in his assessment.

Here, for your enjoyment:

Santa’s Stuffed Mushrooms

(Don’t let the name fool you ~ they are an all-year treat!)

What you Need:

2 packages button mushrooms

1 pint sour cream

2 Tbsp butter

1 pkg Onion Dip

1/2 cup soft bread crumbs

1/4 cup parmesan

2 Tbsp Dry Cooking Sherry

What to Do:

1.  Make your bread crumbs by putting 1 and 1/2 pieces of plain, soft bread in a food processor.  Pulse until evenly chopped.

2.  Preheat oven to 350.

3.  Clean mushrooms.  Remove stems and set aside.

4.  Make onion dip by combining onion package and sour cream.  You will only need 3/4 cup for the recipe, so you can also enjoy some veggies or chips and dip. 😉

5.  Coarsely chop mushroom stems.  In a small saucepan, combine chopped stems with butter, and cook until soft.

6.  Combine 3/4 cup onion dip, bread crumbs, parmesan cheese, sherry and drained mushroom stems.  Mix well.  Fill mushroom caps with mixture.  Sprinkle with a little more parmesan (if you’re a cheese person, which I am!)

7.  Cook for approximately 20 minutes.

8.  Serve!


One thought on “a little treat

  1. I LOVE (and as you know, Dave does as well) mushrooms – and love the variety of options by which to stuff them. I usually go heavy on the garlic, breadcrumbs, and my fav – lump crab meat 🙂

    Also, I have been interested lately in reading conflicting opinion on cleaning mushrooms prior to cooking. The grub on the outside is said to be a huge taste influence, while some people are very adamant about scrubbing them before eating. I usually brush them off with a wet paper towel, and call it a day – though sometimes I skip that all together and toss them in, dirt & all 🙂
