Stuffed Mushrooms Recipe

Thanks to my new found days off, the next few posts will probably be food related. Also, im thinking about making a recipe tab on my blog... thoughts? anyway, today i decided to make stuffed mushrooms. My plan was to have them all ready for my lovely boyfriend when he got home from work. However that didn't work out so well. He walked in as i was just starting... but thank God he did. He saw the recipe i was following and he almost died so he helped me make them the best way he knew how, the Italian way. So anyway here it goes...

1 pack of baby portobello mushrooms
2 cloves of garlic
1 yellow onion
2 tbs butter
1/2-1 cup bread crumbs
oliv oil
vegetable oil

Preheat oven to 350 degrees

1. First Take your mushrooms and pick out the stems. Be sure to get all the stem down in the mushroom to allow for more room inside for stuffing and also more stuffing itself!

2. chop the stems ups into little cubes. Not too small because they shrink a lot when you cook them. Also chop 1/4th of a medium onion and about 2 cloves of garlic

3. put 1-2 tbs of vegetable oil in  a pan and start to saute the mushroom stems. cook them on high until they start to get some color and most of the moisture comes out of the stems.

4. add the garlic and onions to your mixture along with 2-3 tbs of butter. Allow it to cook until the onions are cooked and have a little bit of color to them.

5. add bread crumbs to your mix a little bit at a time. mix in more as needed slowly to create a texture that allows your mix to stick together. When its ready just set it aside

Now heres a step i didn't know and that you will not find on recipes online

6.  sprinkle a generous amount of salt and pepper inside of each of the mushrooms you are going to stuff. after that put 4-5 drops of olive oil in each. This allows the flavor from your stuffing to cook into the mushrooms instead of the stuffing cooking on top of the mushrooms.
7. Then take a spoon and stuff the mushrooms with your stuffing.
8. Then put them in the oven! mine were in for about  15-20 min, but you'll know they're done with the mushrooms are a little squishy.
