Ingredients

  • 36
    medium whole fresh mushrooms (1 pound)
  • 2
    tablespoons butter or margarine
  • 1/4
    cup chopped green onion (3 medium)
  • 1/4
    cup chopped red bell pepper
  • 1 1/2
    cups soft bread crumbs
  • 2
    teaspoons Italian seasoning
  • 1/4
    teaspoon salt
  • 1/4
    teaspoon pepper
  • 1
    tablespoon butter or margarine
  • Grated Parmesan cheese, if desired

Steps

  • 1
    Heat oven to 350°F.
  • 2
    Twist mushroom stems to remove from mushroom caps. Finely chop enough stems to measure 1/3 cup. Reserve mushroom caps.
  • 3
    Melt 2 tablespoons butter in 10-inch skillet over medium-high heat. Cook chopped mushroom stems, onions and bell pepper in butter about 3 minutes, stirring frequently, until onions are softened; remove from heat. Stir in bread crumbs, Italian seasoning, salt and pepper. Fill mushroom caps with bread crumb mixture.
  • 4
    Melt 1 tablespoon butter in rectangular pan, 13x9x2 inches, in oven. Place mushrooms, filled sides up, in pan. Sprinkle with cheese. Bake 15 minutes.
  • 5
    Set oven control to Broil. Broil mushrooms with tops 3 to 4 inches from heat about 2 minutes or until tops are light brown. Serve hot.

  • Preparing for a party? Stuff, cover and refrigerate the mushrooms up to 24 hours ahead. Then when you're ready for hot appetizers, simply start with step 4.
  • If you use Italian-seasoned bread crumbs, you can decrease the Italian seasoning to about 1 teaspoon.
  • Italian seasoning is a premade seasoning blend that usually includes: basil, marjoram, oregano, rosemary, sage, savory and thyme.
  • When using dried spices and seasoning blends, store in airtight container away from heat, light and moisture. For best flavor, keep whole spices and herb leaves up to 1 year and ground spices and herbs up to 6 months. Older spices and herbs can be used, but the flavors will weaken with age.
  • Use a small ice-cream scoop or the large end of a melon ball cutter to scoop the vegetable mixture evenly into the mushroom caps.
