Stuffed Portobella Mushrooms

Portobella mushrooms have such a meaty texture and they are just asking to be stuffed with delicious flavors!

I’m choosing the complimentary flavors of an Italian Caprese salad… with a little crunch!

I’m using 4 large portabella mushrooms with the gills and stems removed

Place in an oven safe dish and drizzle each side with olive oil and balsamic vinegar.  Season the inside of the mushroom with kosher salt and black pepper and set aside to marinate while we prep the stuffing

Measure out 8 ounces of drained, fresh mozzarella balls, 1/2 pint of halved grape tomatoes, 1 cup of panko, 1/2 cup of Parmesan, 3 shredded garlic cloves, 1 tablespoon of fresh chopped parsley and 1/2 teaspoon each of kosher salt, black pepper and red pepper flakes

Add the stuffing ingredients to a large bowl and toss well

Once mixed, add in about 1/2 cup of olive oil to help it all stay together

Evenly divide the stuffing mixture among each mushroom

Bake for 20 minutes in a 425 F degree oven, then broil for 3-5 minutes until they are browned and bubbly

Gooey cheese & crunchy panko make this earthy mushroom into a meal!  Yum!
