  • 40 - white mushrooms, pull out stem to and clean for stuffing
  • 2 cups - Grated Locatelli Cheese, Finely Grated
  • 1 2/3 cups - Plain Bread Crumbs
  • 5 cloves - Garlic, freshly minced
  • 1/3 bunches - Fresh Parsley , Finely chopped
  • - Olive Oil, For Drizzling
  • Directions:

    Drizzle inside of mushrooms with a little Olive oil and sprinkle a little kosher salt in each. Place in a non stick pan on stove top with enough water to cover the bottom of the pan. Heat stove to medium or medium high. You want a low grade boil.
    Mix 1 cup grated locatelli cheese in a bowl and add 1 and a 1/2 cups bread crumbs. mix in garlic and parsley. mix well, this is your stuffing mixture. (add more cheese if you like lots of cheese.)
    Fill each mushroom cap with the stuffing. Spoon a little of the water, from the pan, on top to condense down the breadcrumb mixture. As mushrooms cook down, add a little more breadcrumb mixture to keep the caps filled so that it is a little “overfilled”. (I actually keep a piece of foil over the top of pan while it cooks, to help with the steaming process, but that way it is not completely sealed so that there is too much steam). Continue to monitor water, to ensure there is always a shallow amount in bottom of pan (it will actually turn into a gravy, so keep a shallow amount in pan while it cooks always, the more steam, the better the mushrooms)…. continue to cook down until mushrooms are to your liking (you may add more breadcrumb mixture again, and continuously spoon the pan gravy over them while they cook). I like mine steamed thoroughly, so if you like yours a little less cooked, just keep an eye on them until they are done to your liking. Take them out of pan, put on a platter and drizzle pan sauce over them and garnish with fresh parsley if you like! Enjoy!!!!! They are addictive!

    Brief Description

    Stuffed Mushrooms! Add a bit of mozzarella cheese and place under the broiler for a minute or two! Delicious!!! Great Appetizer Idea! This is an Italian family Recipe. You can use the same stuffing mixture to sprinkle over shrimp scampi as well.

    Main Ingredient:

    Mushrooms, Cheese, Bread Crumbs and Garlic

    Category:  Appetizers

    Cuisine:  American

    Prep Time: 20 min

    I have to say this is a hard recipe to post because really with it being my Husbands family recipe, they do not measure (old school Italian), so it is a go by eye kind of thing. But the measurements listed are pretty much my method so you may want to tweek as needed to your liking. You can add minced clams if you want and cover with mozzarella at the end and put under the broiler for a few minutes, keeping an eye out so they do not burn.... but that will taste like the Olive Garden version.
