RECIPE

Artichoke and Cheese Stuffed Mushrooms

Serve with Elsa’s Warm Chicken Liver Spread with The Works and Olive-Parsley Pesto Spread with Shrimp and Celery.

Ingredients

  • 24 large white mushrooms (2 1/2-3 inches wide)
  • 1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil (EVOO, for drizzling
  • Salt and pepper
  • 2 cans sliced or quartered artichoke hearts
  • 2 cloves minced garlic
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly grated nutmeg, (eyeball it)
  • Pinch dried thyme
  • Handful grated Parmesan
  • Handful parsley leaves, finely chopped
  • 1 tub shredded Asiago cheese, (8 ounces)

Preparation

Preheat oven to 400°F.

Place mushrooms in a large plastic food storage bag. Drizzle in just enough EVOO to coat – about 1/4 cup should do it. Shake the mushrooms to coat and scatter out onto a cookie sheet. Roast 10 minutes, round-side-up. Season with salt and pepper and flip over. Toss drained quartered artichokes with a drizzle of EVOO, garlic, nutmeg, thyme, grated cheese, and parsley. Generously fill the mushroom caps, mounding the filling up. Top the artichokes with shredded Asiago cheese and return to oven. Cook mushrooms 5 minutes more to melt cheese and set filling. Serve warm.
