Garlic, Spinach & Cheese Mushrooms


This was sooo good, even I was surprised!  The recipe is my own concoction based on several recipes I’ve been looking at in various websites.  This has spinach, garlic, mozarella and feta cheeses.  The combination was just as I had imagined it – perfect!

I just hope I can do it as well the next time since it’s one of those “a little bit of this or that” kind of recipes….

Mushrooms Stuffed with Garlic, Spinach and Cheese

12 large button mushrooms

1 tbsp. butter

2 large cloves of garlic

1 c. fresh spinach, chopped

1/4 c. crumbled feta cheese

1/2 c. grated mozarella cheese

2 tbsps. olive oil

salt and pepper to taste

Preheat oven to 400F

Clean the mushrooms of any debris with a dry paper towel.  Scoop out the stems and insides with a melon baller.  Save the stems for soup.

In a 10-inch oven-proof skillet, heat the butter over medium heat until it starts to bubble.  Add garlic and stir a minute or two.  Add spinach and cook for 5 minutes. Add salt and pepper to taste.

Transfer this to a bowl and mix with the feta and mozarella cheeses and the olive oil.  Stuff each mushroom and arrange in the same pan.  Drizzle each mushroom with a little virgin olive oil for flavor. Bake for about 10 minutes or till tops begin to brown.
