This is one of my stuffed mushrooms recipes. I wanted to make risotto but they did not have Arborino rice. I was amazed because they had every other
kind of rice available. The lady who worked there told me to check the Asian section and I laughed because it's Italian! It wasn't there either. I
will have to order a bag online it seems. I really love risotto and traditionally I make it with risotto but any rice will work.
Mblah's Stuffed Mushrooms w/ Wild Rice, Sausage and Cheese
40 mushrooms without the stems (save stems and use them in the filling if you choose)
2 1/2 cups of any shredded white Italian cheese blend
1 cup shredded mozzarella
1 1/2 lb of sausage cooked, drained and crumbled
1/2 large sweet onion diced
1/2 cup diced (the smaller the better) scallions
2 1/2 cups wild grain rice cooked (this is where I usually use risotto)
1/2 cup dry white wine
1 tbs thyme
3 cups ricotta cheese
1. Clean the mushrooms and take off stems (you can diced the stems and add to mixture if you like)
2. In a big bowl mix all of the above ingredients except the parmesean cheese and mozzarella cheese. I actually used an electric mixer on low pulse,
it blended all the ingredients easier. If you stir it make sure you mix it well. Once it is blended chill for a minimum of an hour. Can be made the
night before as well and used the next day.
3. Preheat oven to 350'F
4. Scoop enough into each cap...I over stuff mine
nothing wrong with double stuffed mushrooms!
5. Bake for 15mins and then sprinkle the mozzarella and parmesean cheese over the mushrooms and bake an additional 5-10mins. I go for ten mins so the
cheese has a little crust.
If you have any drippings left in the pan after cooking you can make an easy mushroom gravy out of it. I used the stems left over from the mushrooms
and chopped them really thin and added a little whipping cream, some parmesean cheese, garlic and it will now be the gravy I use over dinner tonight.
I also made Baddmove's Stuffed Mushrooms
Baddmoves are the ones in the front with the BACON!
Both of these were a hit and once again two people who said they don't eat mushrooms ate 3 a piece!
