Its really easy to make stuffed mushrooms. Clean them, remove the stems. Oil, salt and pepper them. I like olive oil for the flavor. If you don't oil them they can get dry. Olive oil is good for you, eat it.
Chop up the stems and add them to a package of cream cheese and shredded parmesan
I added 1 tbsp each parsley, oregano and hot pepper flakes. Add 1/4 cup of almond meal. Stir that together.
Fill the caps with the mixture but don't over fill because they will melt and make a nasty burnt mess in the pan and flavor everything with a nasty burnt flavor. So, don't do that.
Bake them off at about 350 degrees F. Watch them, depending on the size of your mushrooms they may cook faster or longer.
Lately, mushrooms are running around 4 dollars per pound. Thats actually more expensive than meat, but they are so darned tasty, I like to splurge. So Mange! Thats Italian for eat!
