How to Make No Meat But All Heat Stuffed Mushrooms
- Preheat Oven to 350 Degrees. Spray baking sheet w/ cooking spray. Using a damp paper towel, gently clean mushrooms off, then carefully break off stems. Finely chop the stems up.
- Heat oil in skillet. Add garlic & mushroom stems. Saute until moisture is nearly gone being careful not to burn. Set aside and cool.
- Once mixture cools somewhat, add finely chopped green onions, the cream cheese, parm cheese, pepper, onion powder & cayenne to the mixture and mix by hand until ingredients and cream cheese are comletely incorporated. Mixture should be somewhat thick.
- Using a teaspoon, stuff each mushroom cap with mixture & place on cookie sheet for baking.
Bake for 20 minutes or until liquid forms under the mushroom caps. Serve warm!
OR another option: once caps are stuffed, cover and refrigerate to bake the following day.
*Note, the last few times I've made these, I've placed my mushrooms on a metal cookie cooling rack inside the cookie sheet, letting the mushroom juices flow beneath the mushrooms while they are baking. Can be done either way! Enjoy and Happy Cooking!
