I happen to LOVE mushrooms, but it’s so rare that I have them now because Gid is not a fan! However, as he’s currently away on a training course I decided that I’d treat myself to a little mushroomy goodness – and what’s better than a mushroom?
A stuffed mushroom of course!
Now you can literally stuff a mushroom with anything – there are so many recipes on the internet that tell you how to stuff it with cream cheese, or cous-cous, or spinach, or bacon, or even mince! There are many many possibilities.
However, there were not many many possibilities in my refrigerator – so I decided to keep it real simple and go back to basics with my stuffed mushrooms.
I only used three ingredients to stuff my mushrooms – cheddar cheese, spring onions and cherry tomatoes – and they still tasted pretty dang good!
large flat mushrooms
Pre-heat your oven to 200°c
Wash your mushrooms and remove the stems (you can chop them up small and add them to the stuffing mixture if you wish)
Chop your spring onion into small pieces and quarter your cherry tomatoes. Grate your cheese and mix it together with your spring onion and tomatoes (you only need to do enough to stuff your shrooms – so you can work out by sight how much you will need)
Place mushrooms in an oven proof dish and spoon the onion, tomato and cheese mixture into each mushroom.
Bake at 200°c for 15-20 minutes or until the cheese is melted and the mushrooms are just starting to brown at the edges.
Serve and enjoy!
Even though they were so simple to make and used such simple ingredients these stuffed mushrooms still tasted so good – almost like little mini pizzas on a mushroom base! The only problem with mushrooms is they can sometimes go a little watery, but despite this the flavour is still really delicious!
