Mike's Mushroom Bread
I don't review a lot of recipes on this site - I make a lot of them, but I'm rarely actually write a review. That being said, this recipe is amazing, and it's so amazing that I'm actually interrupting my kitchen-cleaning-up to post this.
I subbed out green onions (didn't have any) for regular onions. For a half-batch: I chopped up the mushroom stems (used 8oz baby portabella), with 1/2 white onion chopped fine, about 2 cloves minced garlic, about 1/2 - 1 t. olive oil, 1/2 t. italian seasoning, 1/4 t. salt, and 1/2 t. hot-n-spicy Mrs Dash. Microwaved that for 2 minutes, then added the rest of the mushrooms caps, quartered and sliced thin. Microwaved that for 2 minutes, stirring after 1 min, then drained off the accumulated liquid. Stirred in 1/2 stick (4T, 1/4 cup) softened butter and 1c shredded mozzarella cheese. My only mistake: I didn't let the microwaved veggies cool enough before adding the cheese and butter, so the butter started to melt. I have celiac disease, so to make this Gluten Free, I used 4 premade frozen 6" GF pizza crusts (Glutino-brand). I partially prebaked them under the broiler (2 min each side), then evenly divided the mushroom/cheese mixture on them, and sprinkled a bit more cheese on top (about 1-2 T. on each). Broiled for 4 minutes total, until cheese was bubbling and starting to brown.
Oh my goodness, it was so good! And it was fast - start-to-finish, everything took less than 20 minutes. I will definitely make this again and again and again...
