Renaissance Stuffed Mushrooms

Recipe by  

"I created this recipe for a vegetarian friend. It is based on my Italian sausage stuffed mushrooms, but this is more 'veggie' friendly! Enjoy it! If you don't have any garlic olive oil, just use regular olive oil and add an extra clove of garlic."

I made these Friday night to bring to my neighbor/friends candle party. I sorta snuck in with them & set them on the table & all night I kept hearing "who made these mushrooms, they're really good" and were asking for the recipe. I tasted a few before leaving (for dinner) and thought that they were pretty good, I didn't read the reviews before making them, but I agree with DREGINEK to skip the oil & mix the garlic in with the cream cheese mixture. While they were baking, they did get kinda "runny", but they were okay as they cooled. I got lucky & found 2.5 lbs. mushrooms with huge caps at Costco so I didn't have left over filling. Thanks Chris!

It tasted o.k.--it needed something else...breadcrumbs?

I should have submitted a picture. This is a great recipe and easy to make. I change it around a bit. Instead of sauteeing the mushroom cap, I sauteed the stem pieces, along with green onions and added fresh chopped basil and parsley. Let it cool and added it to the cheese mixture. I added several pads of herb butter to the baking dish right before putting it in the oven. I made it the night before my dinner party, stored in the fridge.

Good mushrooms but as others have mentioned, either double the mushrooms or reduce the filling by half so that you don't have extra leftover. Also, instead of sauting the mushrooms in oil, garlic and green onions, I added the garlic and green onion (omitted the oil) into the cream cheese mix. These are nothing like I have ever had before and I would make again.

I've made these mushrooms several times and they are always well-received. Personally, I like the more traditional "bready" filling so I usually add some fresh bread crumbs (1/2 C. - 1C.) from the food processor. Other than that I don't change a thing. There is not too much filling if you use stuffing mushrooms. This has become the appetizer that people request from me.

This was a very good recipe once a couple of adjustments were made. Instead of 12 mushrooms I used 15, only 6 oz of cream cheese instead of 8 oz(otherwise you would have a lot of extra stuffing),and added 1/4 to 1/2 cup of seasoned bread crumbs.

This recipe was interesting to say the least. Not the best stuffed mushrooms I have ever had, but certainly quite good. This recipe probably does need breadcrumbs - something to give it a little more texture. As well, it could probably use more spiciness. Also, the recipe should really specify that you need very large mushrooms, or double the number of caps. I'm still searching for the best stuffed mushrooms, but this is certainly no slouch.

These were really good. I didn't read the reviews before making and ended up with a ton of leftover stuffing. But that was ok....I have never made stuffed mushrooms before, and will make again. Thanks
