Back during our Atlanta football tailgating days, I started bringing cheesy stuffed mushrooms to the games. It became such a crowd favorite, that we were virtually barred from attending any events with friends unless we brought the ‘shrooms. (Now I’m paranoid. Did our friends actually love us, or the mushrooms? Who knows!)
Even if you aren’t a mushroom lover, you’ll love this recipe. The most wonderful thing about it is the versatility; you can take them to a football game, or you can make them a gorgeous start to a 3 course meal by throwing them on a bed of rocket (arugula), and drizzling with balsamic vinegar. Your guests will swoon with delight.
CHEESY STUFFED MUSHROOMS
- 1 8oz package of cream cheese, softened
- 1 cup parmesan cheese
- 1 tsp salt
- 1 tsp Worcestershire sauce
- couple of dashes of nutmeg
- 1 package of whole closed cup mushrooms
Knead first 5 ingredients together. Core out center of mushrooms, and spoon cheese mixture into mushrooms. Place in casserole dish with sides touching, and back at 375F (190C) for 30 minutes or until the tops are browned.
You will not be disappointed. I promise.
