Stuffed Mushrooms

This is a very interesting receipe as it does not require much effort as it looks.It was almost 5 years back, when I first had this appetizer dish in Olive gardens it was so creamy and bubbling with cheese that I absolutely fell in love with the mushrooms.As soon as I came home I started looking for the receipe in the internet and got so many versions of this receipe.I got very confused and decided to stick to the simplest version.Then as usual I mixed and matched the recipe and came up with my own version with a little bit of Indian touch.From that day onwards this is my special appetizer for any party or a potluck and it has always been well received and appreciated.

1 Packet large white Button Mushrooms(about 12)
8 cloves of garlic finely chopped

1 medium sized onions fineled minced
2tbl sp Butter
1 cup chopped coriander leaves
1 cup of shredded mozarella cheese

1 cup of shredded parmesan cheese(optional)
2 cups bread crumbs

Preheat the Oven to 350C.Wipe the Mushrooms with a damp towel and scoop out the center of the mushrooms, and make it like a hollow cup(like in the picture).Chop the scooped out mushroom stems.Add the butter in a heated pan, add the garlic and the onion saute well.Add the chopped musroom stems and saute well.Add some salt and pepper.Now add the bread crumbs and mix well for 2 mins and allow it to cool.

Stuff the hollow mushrooms with this mixture and arrange it on baking tray.

Sprinkle the cheeses over the stuffed mushrooms .I have used sliced mozerralla, but shredded mozeralla is the ideal one for this dish.It gives more better results.

Place it in the oven and bake it for 20 mins, or until the cheese is bubbling and turns golden.Serve it hot.

Note: I have gone easy on the cheese as you see in the pictures, but beleive me ,more the cheese more is the taste . So go ahead sprinkle more cheese, and have fun for a day.
Enjoy with hot cup of tea!!!
