  • 12 very large brown crimini mushrooms
  • 1-1/2 Tablespoon ghee (or butter)
  • 1 Tablespoon minced, fresh garlic
  • 2 Tablespoons Olive oil
  • 1 cup shredded fresh parmesan cheese
  • 1/4 cup pine nuts
  • 1 Tablespoon fresh, minced basil (or 2 teaspoons dried, crushed)
  • 1/4 cup bread crumbs
  1. Gently wipe the mushrooms and remove the stems. Save about half of them. 

  2. Melt 1 Tablespoon of ghee (or butter) and stir in half the garlic and olive oil. Drizzle over the mushrooms letting it puddle in the middle. 

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

  4. Next, chop up the stems and sauté them lightly in a little remaining 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.

  5. Stuff each mushroom hollow with the mixture and bake again for about 15 minutes. The cheese will be melting.

  6. Top the mushrooms with the remaining cheese and broil until it's melted and golden.

  7. Serve hot - and make sure there are napkins!
