Easy Italian recipe for making stuffed mushrooms that taste great and impress everyone!
Preheat the oven to 350F
Wash the mushrooms with a damp cloth to remove dirt
Remove stems and chop them up into small pieces
Heat the olive oil and butter over the stove on medium heat in a frying pan
Dice the onion into small pieces
Add the mushroom stems and onion into the melted butter/olive oil
Saute until tender and translucent about 5-10 minutes. Don't let it burn.
Meanwhile mix together the breadcrumbs, cheese, herbs and pepper in a bowl.
When the onions and stems are done, add them into the breadcrumbs
Drizzle some olive oil into the mixture and mix well
Stuff the mushrooms well allowing the excess breadcrumb mixture to spill over, that's totally fine.
Drizzle some extra olive oil on top (not too much)
Place the stuffed mushrooms in a oven safe baking dish and cook at 375F for about 30-40 minutes or until done. You'll know when they are done when the tops are golden brown and they are slightly firm to cut with a fork.
If you're preparing for more people, make sure to either buy enough mushrooms and you can also look for packages that have smaller mushrooms to allow for a greater quantity of individual mushrooms. This makes a big difference when preparing for appetizers/finger food.
