After taking a week off from blogging, I figured my first post back should be a super yummy recipe! I found this particular recipe from The Pioneer Woman. It makes a ton of mushrooms, so it is great for parties. I also have been on a mushroom eating frenzy here lately, so when I found this one I decided to try it out. This is one of those recipes where you can choose low fat ingredients and make it a little more diet friendly.
Here’s what you will need:
Cream cheese, sour cream, onion, mushrooms, bread crumbs, cheddar cheese, spinach, hot sauce
I decided to use low fat cream cheese, sour cream, and cheddar cheese to keep the calories down a little bit, and I couldn’t tell a difference. Also, the original recipe called for panko bread crumbs, and I just used plain ole bread crumbs.
Separate mushroom stems from the tops.
In a hot pan, melt 2 Tbsp of butter in a little olive oil.
Chop up 1/2 an onion and the mushroom stems. Then, add to the hot pan. Reduce the heat to medium. Let this cook until the onions are translucent. Last, add in 1/4 cup bread crumbs to the mix.
In a bowl, combine cheddar cheese, cream cheese, sour cream, hot sauce, and drained spinach. Mix all this together.
Once the mushrooms and onions are finished, add this to the cheese mixture.
Here is what the finished filling should look like.
Stuff the mushrooms with the oh so yummy mixture. Make sure you get plenty stuffed in these little babies! Pop this into a 375 oven for about 20-25 minutes. For the last 3 minutes turn on the broiler so the cheese gets nice and bubbly.
And here is the absolutely, unbelievably yummy finished product! These little guys were so good last night! You have to make sure you eat them right out of the oven to make the most of them. I was shocked just how good this recipe turned out because I was a little skeptical at first. If you like mushrooms even a little, this is definitely worth a try!
- 2 packages of mushrooms
- 1/2 yellow onion
- 1 package frozen spinach
- 1 cup 2% cheddar cheese
- 1/3 low fat sour cream
- 1 8oz package low fat cream cheese
- 1/4 cup bread crumbs
- 2 Tbsp butter
- 1 Tbsp olive oil
- 1 Tbsp hot sauce
Preheat oven to 375. Separate stems from mushrooms. Then in a hot pan melt butter in olive oil. Chop onion and mushroom stems then add to the pan. Reduce heat to medium. When the onions and mushrooms are done add in the breadcrumbs to the mixture. While this is cooking, mix together cream cheese, sour cream, cheddar cheese, drained spinach, and hot sauce. Make sure to drain the spinach very well. You can also adjust the amount of hot sauce to your taste. I thought 1 Tbsp wasn’t enough so next time I will add in more. To this bowl, add in the mushrooms and onions then mix everything together. Stuff the mushrooms with this mixture. Make sure to get plenty stuffed into the mushrooms. Bake for 20-25 minutes, turn to broil for the last few minutes. Enjoy!
