I love stuffing food. Esp in my face. So what better food to stuff your face with than stuffed food? Right??

Today's recipe is Stuffed Shrooms! I love mushrooms and recently my hubs and I went out on a date (seriously that like never happens) so we splurged and got appetizers before our meal. I ordered stuffed mushrooms and they came served with a lemon wedge. Oh it was scrumptious! The lemon gave the flavors a pow!

Of course I had to make these the very next chance I could. They turned out yummy!

Stuffed Shrooms

Ingredients18 fresh portabello mushrooms
2 tbsp olive oil
1 tsp garlic powder
2 tbsp chives chopped
1 tsp lemon juice
1/2 tsp dill
1/3 cup of cream cheese (for lower calories you can use reduced fat)
1/3 cup of shredded parm/romano cheese blend
1/4 cup of panko crumbs
salt and pepper to taste
2 lemons

Preheat oven to 400 degrees
Wash mushrooms and pat dry
Gently remove stems from the caps by pulling them with your fingers
Finely chop stems
In a large saute pan heat olive oil
Add chopped stems
Add garlic powder
Add chopped chives, lemon juice and dill
cook until fragrant
remove from heat and set aside
in a medium bowl combine cream cheese, shredded cheese, salt, pepper, and panko crumbs
add mushroom stem mixture and mix well
prepare a large baking sheet with cooking spray
stuff mushrooms generously with mixture
Garnish with parsley. I usually sprinkle a little more cheese on top as well.
Bake in center rack approx 10-15 minutes or until tops are golden brown.

Cool about 5 minutes before serving with a lemon wedge.

You can add crabmeat or artichokes for a more hearty appetizer. I like to mix up my spices so sometimes I add paprika or red pepper flakes. Sometimes a dash of hot pepper sauce or white wine instead of lemon juice. It's really all about making the recipe your own!
