Portobello Mushrooms Stuffed with Four Cheeses Recipe

Portobello Mushrooms with Cheese recipe

In this post I am sharing another recipe of Stuffed Portobello Mushrooms.

I really love Portobello mushrooms and wrote one of the ways I like cooking them.

Many people say that mushrooms become too watery and stuffing “runs away” when they try cooking stuffed mushrooms.

I came up with some simple tricks that might help with the problem:

1.       When picking mushrooms at the store, look for ones with large top and unbroken rims

2.       When cutting out a stem, cut some portion of the stem into mushroom’s top (this way you will have and extra space to fill stuffing)

3.       Use “non-runny” cheeses: ricotta, parmesan, feta or any other soft and cream cheese

4.       Add a raw egg to stuffing mixture which will “hold” ingredients together

One morning I decided to make stuffed Portobello mushrooms.  I did not really follow any recipe, just combined ingredients I had in the fridge.  And oh, boy – I must admit I think these mushrooms turned out to be the best I’ve ever made.  I really liked combination of soft cheeses and crunchy peppers and freshness of a cucumber.

Portobello Mushrooms Stuffed with Four Cheeses and Fresh Sweet Pepper

4 large Portobello mushrooms, stems cut out

1 large sweet pepper (I used the orange one), chopped in small squares

1-2 fresh cucumbers, chopped in very small pieces

½ package of Boursin Cheese with Garlic and Fine Herbs

½ cup of grated parmesan cheese

½ cup of grated feta cheese

½ cup of shredded mozzarella cheese

1 egg

2-3 table spoons of olive oil

Fresh dill (optional) finely chopped

Preheat oven to 390 F.

In a large bowl mix together all 4 cheeses, pepper, cucumbers, egg, dill and olive oil, mix thoroughly until it looks like paste.

Fill up mushroom cups with a paste spreading with a spoon; press paste into mushrooms.

Bake for about 10 minutes.  Then set broil to low setting and broil for about 10-15 minutes.

Cooking time really depends on your oven.  I usually watch that mushrooms look soft but tender; not completely cooked through.

If you would like, sprinkle mushrooms with extra shredded mozzarella, turn broil to high and let cheese melt for 3 minutes.

Remove from oven and let cool for 5 minutes.

I usually use this dish as breakfast and do not add any other side dishes to it.  However, these mushrooms could be an excellent side dish to any meat dinner.
