Friday's Recipe Box

Happy Friday! Happy weekend! Today, I am going the recipe I am going to share is for Stuffed Mushrooms. I love stuffed mushrooms, and I never think about making them--but I did last night! I looked around on the net at various recipes and I came up with one that is rather tasty and not too difficult or fussy. And I took pictures!

Stuffed Mushrooms

1 lb ground beef
1 lb bulk sausage--I used breakfast sausage, because of little man--didn't want it too spicy, but you could use any kind you would like
20 large mushrooms--I used large baby bellas
1 red bell pepper, seeded and chopped
4 green onions, sliced
6 cloves garlic, coarsely chopped
1/4 cup coconut flour (you could substitute almond meal or bread crumbs instead) 
1 egg 
Butter & Oil
Parsley
Salt & Pepper

Preheat oven to 350. De-stem the mushrooms and save. If there are large gills inside of the mushroom, take a small spoon and gently scrape them out. being careful not to break the mushroom cap. Wipe off with a damp towel and place, cap side down, in a large glass baking dish that has been lightly drizzled with oil--I used avocado oil, but feel free to use your favorite oil.

Chop stems and combine with the bell pepper and green onions. Heat a medium skillet over medium heat. When warm, add 1 T butter or oil to pan and add veggies to the pan. Saute until beginning to soften and add the garlic. Continue to cook and stir until veg is soft. Remove from heat and allow to cool for a bit. Add veg to a food processor and pulse until finely chopped. Conversely, you could finely chop all of your veg before cooking to skip this step. Combine vegetable mixture with the beef and sausage, parsley, coconut flour and egg. Add salt and pepper to taste. Mix well with hands. Portion the mixture into the mushroom caps, making meatballs from any remaining meat mixture. Place in pre-heated oven and bake for 40-45 minutes, depending on size. Makes 4-6 servings.

I served mine with saute'ed kale, seasoned with a bit of butter, lemon juice, salt and garlic powder.

These were really rather tasty and my 2 year old son loved the mushrooms! I hope you give them a whirl and I hope you enjoy them! This is a good base recipe that you could flavor up many different ways. I am already thinking of an Asian style with just pork and Asian spices and veggies in the mix!
