Smoked Cheddar-Stuffed Mushrooms

Smoked Cheddar-Stuffed Mushrooms

The strong flavor of smoked cheddar cheese goes a long way in these savory bite-sized appetizers. Dicing (instead of shredding) the cheese allows for little melted pockets in the filling.

  • Yield: 10 servings (serving size: 4 mushrooms)

Ingredients

  • Cooking spray
  • 1/4 cup minced shallots (about 1 large)
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 40 medium button mushrooms (about 1 pound)
  • 1/4 cup dry breadcrumbs
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 2 ounces smoked cheddar cheese, diced
  • 1 teaspoon olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon water

Preparation

Preheat oven to 400°.

Heat a small nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Coat pan with cooking spray. Add minced shallots and minced garlic; sauté 2 minutes or until tender. Place shallot mixture in a medium bowl.

Remove stems from mushrooms; chop stems. Add chopped mushroom stems, breadcrumbs, chopped parsley, salt, freshly ground black pepper, and smoked cheddar cheese to shallot mixture; toss with a fork until blended. Add olive oil and 1 teaspoon water; stir well to combine.

Spoon about 1 teaspoon filling into each mushroom cap. Arrange mushrooms, filling side up, on a baking sheet. Bake at 400° for 20 minutes or until filling begins to brown and cheese melts. Serve warm.
