Earlier this summer for some reason we had a stock pile of mushrooms just taking up room in the fridge. I wasn’t in the mood for fried mushrooms, or a mushroom and cheese omelette, or really anything that I would typically do with mushrooms. I wanted something quick and easy so I opened the fridge and saw some mayo, half an onion, some garlic, bread crumbs, cheese, and some greek yogurt. So I pulled all this out and decided I was going to make stuffed mushrooms!!! Everyone loved them so they have become a staple in my cooking arsenal!
As per usual I pulled out all my ingredients so I’m not running around like a chicken with my head cut off trying to dig out things I need as I’m making them.
Grated some cheddar and parm
Threw in some low fat may and greek yogurt… I swear since I discovered greek yogurt a few months ago I feel like that old lady on the hot sauce commercial… I put that shit in everything! It’s great for you, and has lots of protein!)
Now I made these to go with the sticky chicken I made and had a little bit of the sauce left over…. So I figured why not, and added in the last of the sauce into the mushroom mixture, hell it couldn’t taste bad could it?
Now here is where some people may get all up in arms…. “Why didn’t you clean out the gills of the mushrooms???? OMG that’s so gross!!!” Well guess what when you order fried mushrooms on your steaks in a resturant, they don’t clean out the gills…, in fact the only time I clean out the gills in my mushrooms is when I’m working with large portobello mushrooms.
That being said…. I stuffed those mushrooms with the amazing filling!
This has become my new favourite vegetable side dish to go with any meal! If you try these out let me know and leave a comment below.
There is no recipe for these just use whatever you think would taste good!
