Did you know that February 4th is National Stuffed Mushroom Day?

So what do you like stuffing your mushrooms with?  I love my recipe from Ina Garten.  She stuffs her mushrooms with a mix of panko, mascarpone, italian sausage, scallions, herbs, and parmesan.  Delicious.

 Hmmm, I don't get it.  Why stuff something with itself?  My friend makes stuffed tomatoes and uses a huge can of tomatoes right in the stuffing.  Isn't there enough mushroom in a mushroom?

The stems are used in many cases to make a duxelle which acts as a strecher to whateve else you use.Why open tomateoes when you have mushroom? You can stuff them with anything.

I missed it :( I love stuffed mushrooms and stuffed capsicums.

A very classic is mushrooms stuffed with garlic butter; mix butter, chopped parcely, garlic, s&p. Fill mushroomcaps, put in the oven.

 

How about making a thick bechamel, add finely cut slice of cooked ham, steamed or cooked bits of leaks, Gruyère on top. In the oven for a few minutes and broiled the last seconds.

Oh my mom used to top them with a spoonful of bolognese and a some bechamel.  Yummy.

 

I love crab stuffed mushrooms too but never made them.

I don't doubt that the flavor is good or that I would like it.  I'm just saying, why stuff something with itself?

One reason is for cost, if you throw the stems out, you lose money. Another is to help fill. And even one more is, the stem has a slight woody flavor that inhances the stuffing.

 

I like to use, stems, panko, italian ground sausage, herbs, s&p, asiago, a little chicken broth to help combine everything and finally some Crown Royal.

Any mushroom stuffing suggestions for the lactose intolerant? Something modest... it's for friends not a love interest.

post #18 of 26

pcie,how about spinach or greens wilted with garlic, evo and maybe even a touch of anchovy....bread crumbs/evo/parsley/herbage (brain is not quite awake yet but dillweed)....add parm or gouda or chevre or swiss to those that eat cheese and leave the others sans dairy.

Forgot the easiest and tastiest stuffing; Boursin cheese, the "ail et fines herbes" (garlic and herbs) variety. Nothing else, fill caps, let cheese melt in the oven, delicious!

 

Maybe if you don't find Boursin, you could replace it with a mixture of ricotta, a dash of cream, garlic, fresh herbs (parcely, chives, citronella, chervil...), s&p

My smoked fish stuffed mushrooms are lactose free. Very simple to make because you can buy the fish smoked if you want.

post #21 of 26

I like it just simple. I slice the mushroom by quarters and mixed with butter and white pepper then, I cook it in the grill. :)

Imitation  Boursin

 

8  ounces real cream cheese

4  ounces good quality butter

1  shake worchestire sauce

1 T  c hopped parsley

 1/2   t  garlic powder

 1   t snipped chives

  white pepper to taste

pinch chopped dry basil and thyme

 

Boursen is really a double cream cheese, with high butterfat content

 

Put all ingredients into mixer  mix till well blended put into tubs., chill

Chefedb, I see that you are online and may have been around long enough to have experienced and remembered an amazing seafood stuffed mushroom served at the Cape Cod room of the Drake Hotel in Chicago in the late 1950s or early 1960s.  

 

It was so delicious, but I had not ordered it, my step-father had.  I only got one bite but would love to know what was in it.

In years gone by, used to buy small shrooms, and chop up the stems to incorporate into the filling - to use the whole mushroom.  Would fill them with crab, shrimp etc.  Like the large portobellas stuffed caprese style, or with risotto and pine nuts. Use whatever you like.

post #25 of 26


Don't know the one that you had but  here is one I have used

ground shrimp, bread crumbs. dill, s&p tabasco,1 egg,chopped sautéed garlic ,parsley. shallots, chopped water chestnut. Mix all together stuff mushroom then dip in to Tempura batter and fry

Will save and try your recipe, but the mushroom at the Drake was probably baked, maybe broiled.  I have no memory of the taste, as I do remember the taste of my Great-grandmother and Great-aunt's recipes, but I do remember that I was upset that I had not ordered it, and it may have been the most delicious thing I had ever eaten.

 

Thanks,

Lily

 

Cerise,

 

I did not see your post until just now.  I do use the stems in my recipe for small stuffed mushrooms; crisped bacon, cheddar or American cheese, and chopped up stems dotted with butte, topped with crumbs if desiredr; very tasty, but not approaching what I tasted at the Drake, if memory serves me well.  Nothing in my repertoire even approaches what was in that dish.  In my very young mind the mushroom was huge; the sides came up around the filling UNnlike a Portabello.  Is my memory flawed or is there such a mushroom?
