MINE: Stuffed Mushroom Appetizers!


So on Saturday, John took the 10- and 4-year-old boys and the twins to the 14-year-old boy's football game in Arizona, some 5 and a half hours away. Because Baby Hippo doesn't travel well, I opted to stay home with him, and so did the girls, perhaps to take a break from the boys, perhaps because it was a long drive, or perhaps because they just wanted to stay home and help me cook and clean all day. I'm sure that's why.

Anywho, the 15-year-old girl thought she'd try a new recipe for lunch, so, as always, she went to and came up with the following DELICIOUS stuffed mushroom appetizer.

And guess what. I went to a huge amount of trouble (just because I love you) to enter each and every ingredient, plus their portions, at, one of my all time favorite food info sites, and have provided for you a link to this recipe's nutrition data. And just so you know, six of these stuffed mushrooms only have 187 calories, which fits perfectly into my diet plan! Yay!

Okay, hope you love 'em!

2 slices whole wheat bread
2 Tbsp butter
1/2 cup mozzarella cheese
1/4 cup parmesan cheese
24 medium sized mushrooms
1/4 cup onions, chopped
1/4 cup green onions, chopped
1/4 cup green peppers, chopped
1/2 tsp garlic salt
1/4 tsp paprika
1/4 tsp cayenne peper
1/4 tsp dried thyme


Step 1. Remove stems from mushrooms; set caps aside. Finely chop stems; measure 1 cup (discard any remaining stems or save for another use).

Step 2. In a skillet, saute chopped mushrooms, garlic, onion and green pepper in butter until vegetables are tender and mushroom liquid has evaporated.

Step 3. Toast bread, then process in a food processor until they become crumbs or crumble by hand. Add bread crumbs, garlic salt, cayenne pepper, thyme and paprika to the sauteed mixture; mix well.

Step 4. Stuff into mushroom caps then sprinkle with mozzarella and parmesan cheeses. Place on greased baking sheets. Bake, uncovered, at 425 degrees F for 10 minutes or until heated through.
