Renaissance Stuffed Mushrooms Recipe
- 12 large mushrooms
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- 2 cloves garlic, peeled and minced
- 3 tablespoons chopped green onions
- 1 (8 ounce) package cream cheese, softened
- 3 tablespoons port wine
- 1 teaspoon Italian-style seasoning
- 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
- 3/4 cup shredded Cheddar cheese
- 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
- 2 dashes hot pepper sauce
step 1: Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
step 2: Remove stems from mushrooms. Set aside caps. Finely chop stems, discarding hard pieces.
step 3: Heat olive oil in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Stir in mushroom caps, garlic and green onions. Cook and stir until soft, about 4 minutes. Remove from heat and allow to cool until easily handled.
step 4: In a medium bowl, mix together chopped mushroom stem pieces, cream cheese, port wine, Italian-style seasoning, Parmesan cheese, Cheddar cheese, ground black pepper and hot pepper sauce.
step 5: Stuff mushroom caps with the mushroom stem mixture. Arrange on a medium baking sheet and bake in the preheated oven 20 to 25 minutes, or until lightly browned.
