Cheese Stuffed Mushroom Appetizer

Rated as 4.63 out of 5 Stars

"A local restaurant in North Carolina made these. I loved them, but they were horribly expensive. So I figured out how to make them on my own. They are truly rich and delicious. Serve about 6 each as an appetizer. The filling is soft and creamy, if you prefer a firmer filling add an egg white to the cheese mixture."

  1. Heat two large skillets over medium-high heat, melt 3 tablespoons of butter in each of the skillets and divide the mushroom caps between the two. Cook and stir the mushroom caps until the edges are slightly soft, about 5 minutes. Place the mushrooms in a colander to drain and cool.
  2. Stir together the cream cheese and goat cheese until well blended. Mix in the onions and mushroom stems. Use all of the filling to generously fill each mushroom cap and place, filling side up, in a baking pan.
  3. Preheat the oven broiler for high heat.
  4. Melt the remaining 1/4 cup of butter with the garlic in a small saucepan over medium heat, cook the garlic for 1 minute once the butter has completely melted. Drizzle the garlic butter over the filled mushroom caps.
  5. Place the pan of mushrooms in the preheated oven to broil until golden brown, about 5 minutes.

Good, but my family found them WAY too rich. The filling was too creamy as well. I like a stiffer filling in my mushrooms. I will not make this again.

Cooked this for Christmas. I skipped the last drizzle step and instead, sauteed the stems and garlic in the pan after cooking the mushrooms and just added that to the filling. Plus, I wasn't s...

These were very good. I couldn't find goat cheese so I used blue cheese. I added a little more onion. They were very tasty.
