Along with the deviled eggs, I made stuffed mushrooms to take along today. Stuffed mushrooms make a nice appetizer or some finger foods.
You will need:
- Mushrooms (preferably large – around 2″ across).
- Mozzarella Cheese (comes in a bag with water and preferably the cheese balls).
- Olive Oil
- Chilly Powder
Take the mushrooms and holing it upside down in your left hand, push the stem to the side and back with the other hand. You should hear a ‘pop’ and the stem should come out.
Set the mushrooms on a plate.
Add a mozzarella balls (or cut piece) in the stem hole.
Fill the hole with olive oil till it comes almost to the top. of the stem hole.
Sprinkle a pinch of salt on each one.
Sprinkle a pinch of chilly powder (not red pepper unless you like spicy) on each one.
Add one twist of black-pepper.
Put the mushrooms in the microwave for 90 seconds. Check, if the cheese is melted – take them out. If not, add 20 seconds and check again. / You can also cook in an oven for 8 minutes if you have one. Check, cook until cheese is melted.
Place the mushrooms on the serving plate.
Add a parsley sprig to the top of each one.
