Stuffed mushrooms

Postby TeresaFoodie » April 23rd, 2018, 8:47 am

Mushrooms are one of those foods I just couldn't do without but I rarely turn them into a centre piece to a meal. This has to change!

I know I can get huge flat mushrooms locally, perfect for stuffing. Do you have any favourites?

I'd like to try something other than the simply delicious garlic and herb breadcrumb mix. There seem to be quite a few interesting ideas here.

I think something nutty could be yummy. Any ideas please? Doesn't have to be veggie!

I do something similar to this

sometimes topped off with a rasher of smoked bacon or some pancetta :hungry:

Something with puy lentils and feta -maybe s-d toms. Lots of fresh herbs.

I love to stuff field mushrooms with a course pate and top with breadcrumbs - pop into the oven and bake until the crumbs are golden and the mushroom tender.

i like them grilled/baked, with mozzarella or halloumi in - especially as a burger with a touch of salad and coleslaw on the side.

I tend to go down the cheese and breadcrumb route. maybe with capers, s-d toms, olives and other flavour-intense Mediterranean ingredients.

You could do Mexican flavours - quesadilla fillings.

Indian spices, paneer etc.

I saw a photo somewhere (not a recipe, but it doesn't seem difficult) of a large flat mushroom with an egg baked in it.

:lol: So it seems! Lots of lovely ideas here! Thanks all!

I did have a load of breadcrumbs in the freezer but they got covered in chicken juice when my freezer defrosted, but I will be whizzing up more when I get some stale bread, or if! Then I'll go down the breadcrumb route as I can do that one standing on my head. I never thought to add sun dried tomatoes. That sounds nice. In the meantime I think I will try cracking an egg in and see what happens. What could be simpler, what could go wrong? Think that would be yummy on a slice of fried bread!

If you a bit wary of breaking in a whole egg, cook the mushrooms first then top with scarmbles egg with loads of fresh herbs or a few snippets of smoked salmon etc etc.

Actually, further searching reveals nut and spinach seems to be a popular combination, like this.

Pine nuts aren’t nuts though I don’t think.

Probably seeds technically I suppose?

Love pine nuts especially when toasted :chops:

Take the stalk out of the mushroom, the egg then sits in there better.....

There are also a lot of walnut and spinach combinations out there. I have walnuts, I'll get spinach on my shop Wednesday. I am also going to taste goat's cheese for the first time at the deli, that could be nice as long as I like it!

My favourite is a spinach, ricotta, mushroom stalk, grlic & parmesan mix baked and then topped with a poached egg. (With a wodge of good bread to mop the juice/yolk) :D
I also had one once stuffed with diced sausagemeat, diced crispy potatoes, chopped tomato flesh & topped with an egg then baked served with crispy streaky bacon. It was sublime - breakfast in a mushroom :D

Possible toppings:
1) Spinach, raisins, feta/halloumi/paneer
2) Remove the sausage meat from a chorizo, blend with grilled peppers, garlic and breadcrumbs. Stick on top of the mushroom and grill.
3) Soak some soy mince, cook together with a few red beans, chile, garlic, onion, mexican seasoning. Scrunch up some tortilla chips into the mix. Grill.
4) Chickpeas, peppers, onions, courgettes, with olive oil and garlic.
5) Wlesh Rarebit topping

Aldi have large packs of big, fat, flat mushrooms at the moment. Must get some.

And this looks nice with halloumi.

Mat Follas did a mushroom toad in the hole in one of his books, I enjoyed it!

well, if a nut is a seed in a hard shell then maybe it is - pine nuts have to be cracked out of a very hard, thick shell. there are special machines now but they used to have to be cracked open by hand, with lots of broken ones (maybe why pesto was invented!) which is why they're quite expensive.

i've bought some nice mushrooms to stuff this weekend.

they were done with some finely razored red onion, a little finely shaved garlic, some tetilla cheese, a drizzle of chilli oil (made by our local young) and some black pepper. they were yummy.
