18 white button or cremini (baby bella) mushrooms (about 10 oz package)
1 tablespoon olive oil, divided
¼ finely chopped mushroom stems
½ small onion, chopped find (just over ¼ cup)
3 minced garlic cloves
2 - 3 teaspoons chopped fresh parsley
¼ c gluten free breadcrumbs (use gluten free panko or regular breadcrumbs)
Salt and fresh ground black pepper
1 tablespoon chopped fresh parsley or chives for serving, optional plus additional Cheesy Sauce for drizzle
- Heat oven to 400 degrees F. Line a 13x9 shallow baking pan with parchment paper or silicone baking mat.
- Using a damp paper towel, brush the peat moss from mushrooms. Remove the mushroom stems. Cut away and discard any hard bits of the stems then finely mince ¼ cup of them.
- Add the mushroom caps to the prepared baking sheet. Toss them with ½ tablespoon of olive oil and a light sprinkle of pepper. Arrange them cavity-side-up in a single layer.
- Place the other ½ tablespoon of oil in a medium sized skillet over medium heat. Add the onions and chopped mushroom stalks, and a pinch of salt. Cook, occasionally stirring for 5 minutes. Add the garlic and parsley, then cook, stirring, for 2 minutes.
- Stir the cheesy sauce and breadcrumbs into the onions and garlic mixture, cook for another 1 minute.
- Divide the filling between the mushroom caps.
- Bake the mushrooms until mushrooms have softened; about 13-15minutes. Serve with additional chopped fresh herbs/chives, a bit of fresh ground black pepper on top and a drizzle of additional cheesy sauce.
- Mushrooms are best fresh, but can be stored in the refrigerator for up to 3 days, chopped up they would make the perfect addition to a cheesy pizza!
Substitute fresh parsley: For fresh cilantro, fresh thyme or fresh rosemary. Just be sure to pair wisely with what cheesy sauce you are using.
