With only three ingredients and a few simple steps, stuffed mushrooms make a tasty starter or side, or an interesting addition to a buffet. Any type of blue cheese can be used. Other cheeses such as Cheddar can also be substituted but I recommend using a blue cheese for maximum flavour.
- Large flat mushrooms
- Blue cheese, thinly sliced
- Fresh white breadcrumbs
- Dash of olive oil
How to make stuffed mushrooms
The mushrooms take only minutes to prepare and cook and really couldn't be any easier.
Peel the mushrooms and place on a baking sheet. Drizzle a dash of olive oil onto each mushroom and cook for around 5 to 10 minutes.
Place the thinly sliced cheese on top of each mushroom.
Place the breadcrumbs on top of the cheese. Pile as high as possible as the level will reduce during cooking.
Cook in the centre of the oven at gas mark 4, 180oC, 350oF. For an Aga, cook in the centre of the roasting oven for around 10 minutes or until the breadcrumbs are golden. Serve hot straight from the oven.
These mushrooms make a tasty accompaniment to many pasta dishes such as fusilli with broccoli and pine nuts.
