Stuffed Mushrooms

You may prepare all of this in the morning and refrigerate. Bake, as directed, whenever youÂre ready to serve. Serves 4 as a little cocktail appetizer, or 2 as a main course.

1 tin (142 mL) of baby clams

12 large white mushrooms

½ cup butter

2 cloves garlic, smashed and very finely minced

1 Tbsp dried parsley

¼ tsp garlic powder

1 Tbsp freshly squeezed lemon juice

5 or 6 drops Louisiana hot sauce

Pinch of seasoning salt

Pinch of black pepper

1 Tbsp dry white wine (optional)

Pinch dried oregano (½ tsp or so)

1 cup (approx.) Kraft Italiano 4-Cheese Blend OR ½ cup

mozzarella cheese and ½ cup Parmesan cheese

Remove stems from mushroom caps. Heat a little vegetable oil (1-2 Tbsp) in large frying pan on medium or medium-high heat. Place mushroom caps upside down into the hot pan. Brown this side only for about 4-5 minutes. Place upside down on paper towel to drain off some of the moisture.

Lightly butter 2 escargot dishes or 2 individual casserole dishes.

Bring ½ cup butter to room temperature. Drain clams, and save the broth for a chowder or bouillabaise, etc.

Beat butter, by hand, until very soft. Add minced garlic, garlic powder, parsley, salt, pepper, oregano, lemon

juice, hot sauce, wine (if using), and beat until well combined.

Place mushroom caps into buttered ovenproof dishes. Place a heaping teaspoon of baby clams into each cap.

Top each with a heaping teaspoon of butter mixture; pressing lightly to fit lots in. Sprinkle a generous helping of cheese mixture on top of butter mixture; pressing down lightly.

Bake on an upper rack at 425°F for 15-20 minutes, or until cheese is lightly browned. Serve immediately with homemade bread.

Stuffed Mushrooms

1 pound fresh mushrooms ( meduim size)
1/4 c. butter
3 green onions
1/2 c finely grated fresh bread crumbs
3 T crumbled Maytag Blue Cheese
1 T minced fresh parsley
1T lemon juice
1/2 t salt
Wipe mushrooms and remove stems. Chop stems and green onions ( tops too!) and saute in the butter until just getting soft. Add crumbs, cheese, parsley, lemon juice and salt. Place in mushroom caps in a shallow baking dish, sprinkle with paprika, Bake 8 minutes at 450.

Do not fill mushrooms ahead or the salt in the filling will draw moisture out of the mushrooms and make them watery. You can, however make the filling ahead and refrigerate and fill the mushrooms just before baking. Allow a couple more minutes baking to allow for the ice cold filling.
