Easy Goat Cheese Stuffed Mushrooms

Posted Oct 15 2011 10:23am

Last night I cooked a nice dinner for Joe and I after completing a big grocery shopping trip.  The trip was much needed because my cupboards and fridge were looking bad.  After stocking up on the goods, I came home and made a delicious meal.

The meal was steak, sautéed onions as a topper, and goat cheese stuffed mushrooms which were surprisingly easy to make. 

First I cleaned 8 whole mushrooms and ripped out the center and stems.  Some recipes online said you could scoop them out with a spoon, but I found this hard and the mushroom caps were breaking.  By grabbing the stems and wiggling them back and forth I was able remove the middles.

I then placed the caps in a sauté pan that I spritzed with an olive oil spray.  I didn’t want to cook them in too much oil since I was trying to keep them as healthy as possible.  After cooking them for 5-10 minutes like that, I removed them and threw some chopped green onions into the pan (just with whatever olive oil spray was leftover).  I let those cook for a few minutes and then combined them with goat cheese, pepper, and a dash of olive oil.

Before putting the cheese in the caps I put the mix in the microwave for about 10 seconds just to soften it up enough to stir everything all together.  Then I just scooped some cheese into the caps and baked them at 400 for about 15 minutes.  Easy and a great light side dish!

This recipe is also good because you can mix up the filling with different ingredients.  I’m looking forward to trying a goat cheese and spinach filling next!  Green onion was definitely a winner though. 

Last night was fun.  I got dressed up to go out to a bar called the Field House in Philly.  It was definitely my kind of place.  There was live music that I swear was playing ALL of my favorite songs, plenty of placed to sit, and it wasn’t too loud.  Definitely a winner.  I know everyone’s different, but I just don’t find fun in going to crazy crowded places where you can’t get a table and talk.  I’m probably just an old fuddy duddy though…

P.S. I’s wear these boots anywhere if I could….

Off to have a fun and productive Saturday!
