Garlicky Stuffed Mushrooms

I love mushrooms.

I made these mushrooms as an appetizer for my husband and myself. It was our anniversary and we stayed home and ate appetizers and drank champagne. We each made a few appetizers and this one was my favorite (the most garlic!).

These big, juicy shrooms are stuffed with parmesan, pine nuts, garlic and basil and drizzled with garlicy butter, then baked until golden and tender. Who needs dinner when you’ve got these!

Here’s How to Make them:

First, gently wipe the mushrooms and remove the stems. Save about half of them.

Melt the ghee (or butter) and stir in half the garlic and olive oil. Drizzle over the mushrooms letting it puddle in the middle.

Bake at 350° for about 10 to 12 minutes, or until the mushrooms are getting soft.

Next, chop up the stems and sauté them lightly in a little more ghee and the remaining garlic. Add the basil, breadcrumbs and pine nuts. Remove from the heat and stir in the bread crumbs and half the parmesan cheese.

Note: You can bake the mushrooms in any dish that will hold them upright. Escargot bakeware is perfect. It has little hollows you can set the mushrooms in and they won’t roll.
