HOW TO MAKE THIS STUFFED MUSHROOMS RECIPE

PRO TIP:

You can assemble these easy stuffed mushrooms several hours in advance and then pop them into the oven to bake at the last minute before you’re ready to eat. 

STEP ONE: Preheat oven to 400°F. Line a rimmed baking sheet with foil and set it aside.

STEP TWO: Prepare your mushroom caps by removing the stems (save those stems) and brushing off any dirt that may be on your mushrooms.

PRO TIP:

DO NOT run the mushrooms under water, you only want to use a dry paper towel to clean your mushrooms, this will make your mushrooms soggy when cooked.

STEP THREE: Place mushroom caps onto a foil-lined baking sheet. You want to have your mushrooms with the stem side up so that you can fill them. Set aside.

STEP FOUR: Chop all your mushroom stems into a fine dice. Set aside.

STEP FIVE: In a medium skillet on medium-high heat, add the olive oil, onion, garlic, salt and pepper. Saute for 2 to 3 minutes or until translucent. Add the chopped mushroom stems, spinach and 1 tablespoon of the chopped parsley. Continue to cook for another 3 to 5 minutes or just until the mushrooms are tender. Remove from the heat.

STEP SIX: In a large bowl, using a rubber spatula, combine the softened cream cheese and grated parmesan cheese until completely incorporated. Add the cooled mushroom mixture and stir until completely combined.

STEP SEVEN: Transfer your cream cheese and mushroom mixture to a large zip-top, or pastry bag. Snip the end off of the corner of your bag and gently squeeze (or pipe) the filling into each mushroom cap. The amount of filling you will use per mushroom cap will vary depending on the size of each mushroom.

PRO TIP:

If you do not have a pastry bag or large zip-top bag, you can very easily just scoop the filling into each mushroom cap with a small spoon.

STEP EIGHT: In a small bowl combine the seasoned bread crumbs, remaining 2 tablespoons of grated parmesan cheese and 1 tablespoon fresh chopped parsley. Stir to combine.
