Stuffed mushrooms make delicious party food. They are easy to eat while standing. Two bites and you finish them. No mess. This recipe has very good flavor and I love to make them when I have dinner parties. I think I need to have a party and make these so I can get a picture for you!
1 pound medium mushrooms (about 24)
1/3 cup finely chopped green onions (scallions) with tops
1 clove garlic (crushed or minced)
1/4 cup butter or olive oil
1/2 cup dry bread crumbs
1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon dried basil leaves
1/3 teaspoon pepper
Cut ends from mushroom stems and discard. Remove stems from mushrooms; chop finely. Cook and stir mushroom stems, green onions and garlic in butter or oil over medium heat until tender, about 5 minutes. Remove from heat and stir in remaining ingredients.
Fill mushroom caps with stuffing mixture. Place mushrooms filled sides up in greased baking dish. Cook in 350F degree oven 15 minutes. Serve hot.
Add a little cooked, spicy sausage to the mix.
