Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).

  • Carefully remove mushroom stems and chop stems into small pieces. Set mushroom caps aside.

  • Heat butter in a skillet over medium heat. Add mushroom stems and garlic. Cook and stir until soft, 3 to 5 minutes. Remove from heat.

  • Combine cream cheese, cayenne pepper, black pepper, and salt together in a bowl. Stir in cooked mushroom stem mixture, retaining butter in the skillet.

  • Return skillet to medium heat and add shrimp. Cook and stir until shrimp are just opaque, 3 to 5 minutes. Remove from heat.

  • Pour bread crumbs into a shallow bowl. Fill each mushroom cap with cream cheese mixture and press mushroom, cream cheese-side down, into the bread crumbs to coat the top. Stick a cooked shrimp on top of each filled mushroom and place into a baking pan.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until hot and juicy, about 20 minutes.

This turned out very good. I did add a little onion powder and paprika because I have to cut back on sodium. I put very little salt and it was pretty delicious. Read More
