This Breadcrumb Stuffed mushroom is a super easy and simple appetizer or side dish recipe. Takes barely any time to make and the cheesy bread crumbs just melt in the mouth. The perfect way to dress a celebration or the weekend dinner table. I use large mushrooms but any size mushrooms work just as well.

FOR THE MUSHROOMS
Preheat the oven at 190 C/ 380 F
Clean the mushrooms well by wiping them with a moist paper towel.
Remove the stalks gently so you do not break the mushrooms
Using a teaspoon carefully scrape off the gills to create more space (inside of the mushroom caps).
Chop the mushrooms stalks finely and add them to the chopped onions.
Line a baking tray with Aluminium foil for easy cleanup.
Coat the foil with olive oil to prevent the mushrooms from sticking.
Then lightly coat the mushroom caps with olive oil. This will prevent them from drying out.
PREPARE THE FILLING
Pulse the bread slices in the food processor until they are fine crumb consistency.
In a mixing bowl add all the filling ingredients
Chopped mushrooms stalks
Both fresh and dried breadcrumbs
Minced garlic, and cooked onions (optional)
Season with salt and Pepper to taste (use less salt as the cheese is salty)
Mix well – then drizzle two tablespoon of Olive Oil
STUFF THE MUSHROOMS
Hold each mushroom in your palm and gently stuff the cavity with the bread crumb stuffing.
Place them on the baking tray.
Drizzle with remaining Olive Oil
Bake in a preheated oven for about 20 to 25 minutes until the tops are nice and golden.
Garnish with fresh cilantro or parsley before serving.
