Stuff My Mushrooms

Last Friday night I had the girls Christmas party and it was a success!

All of the food I prepared were new recipes that I found on Pinterest.

(Seriously, if you're interested in crafts, new recipes, life and you're not on Pinterest, you're missing out on  the best website in the world.)

This week I'm going to introduce you to all the dishes I prepared.

The first dish (which can be found here) I want to share with you is perfect for any holiday party.

The ingredients you'll need for these amazing stuffed mushrooms are:

Large White Mushrooms
Balsamic Vinegar
Olive Oil (I used extra virgin)
Italian Sausage (2 links or ground meat in a package)
Cream Cheese (4oz or half a block)
Rosemary (the recipe also called for fennel but I omitted that)
1 Small Onion
a Few Cloves of Garlic
Grated Asiago Cheese (about 3oz)
Salt and Pepper

I'd like to note that I was crazed putting all of these dishes together so I don't have every single step photographed like I normally do.

What is equally as important, I was once again downgraded to sous chef. GB jumped in the kitchen and  took over. (Don't tell him - but it's good that he did. I would have NEVER finished all the food in time.)

First thing we did was pull the stems out of the mushroom caps. GB did that using a spoon.

Then we tossed the caps in a mix of balsamic vinegar and olive oil.

Next we roasted the caps at 350° for about 30 minutes. (I'm so excited because I just learned how to type the degree symbol! yay!)

While the caps were roasting I made the stuffing. GB had already cooked the sausage in a frying pan and I then added the cream cheese, a chopped onion, chopped garlic, a teaspoon of rosemary, and salt and pepper.

We (when I say 'we' I mean GB) stuffed the caps with the mixture, sprinkled more asiago cheese atop the 'shrooms and baked for another 30-45 minutes.

These mushrooms were fabulous! I would definitely call it an easy recipe and recommend them for any party.
