Prosciutto Stuffed Mushrooms

Updated on April 19, 2010

Ingredients

  • 20 - 30 jumbo mushrooms
  • 1 cup unseasoned bread crumbs
  • 1/2 lb. sliced prosciutto
  • 1/4 cup shredded parmesan cheese
  • 4 cloves roasted garlic
  • 2 tbsp. prepared pesto *
  • salt & pepper to taste

* In place of prepared pesto, you can subsitute 1 tbsp. fresh basil + 1 tbsp. olive oil

Instead of prosciutto and parmesan, try...

  • Sausage and mozzarella
  • Blue cheese
  • Sun-dried tomatoes
  • Crab and dill
  • Mozzarella and fresh tomato
  • Ricotta cheese
  • Eggplant
  • Walnuts and raisins
  • Feta cheese and oregano
  • Bacon
  • Duck confit
  • Smoked salmon and capers
  • Ground beef and balsamic
  • Garlic and olives
  • Ground lamb and pistachio
  • Caramelized shallots
  • Shrimp
  • Mac & cheese (sounds strange, but delicious!)
  • Roasted red peppers and cilantro
  • Chicken salad
  • Brie cheese and orange zest
  • Get creative!

Step 1) Clean your shrooms... Using your thumb and forefinger, gently remove the stem from the mushroom and set aside (refer to the above instructional video). Discard the stems or if desired, freeze for soup. Run the destemmed mushroom caps under cold running water and gently remove any dirt or debree with your finger and remove to a dry clean towel. Pat each mushroom dry with paper towels.

Step 2) Make your stuffing... In a food processor, puree together the bread crumbs, prosciutto, parmesan cheese, roasted garlic, prepared pesto or basil and a salt & pepper until fully mixed. You may have to scrape down the sides of the processor a few times to fully blend.

Step 3) Stuff and bake... Using your fingers, loosely stuff each mushroom caps with approximately 1 tbsp. of the bread crumb mixture. Try to avoid pressing the stuffing in too hard because it will result in a dense doughy consistency. Keep it loose. Line a baking sheet with foil and spray with a cooking spray (Pam works great). Place the mushrooms cap side down on the baking sheet and bake in a 350 degree oven for 15 minutes. For a crusty top, place under the broiler for the last 2 minutes or pass over them with a brulee torch. Serve immediately and enjoy!

      Delaney this sounds like it would be rather salty what with the prosciutto and the parmesan and then adding salt too. Another little added texture and flavour might be Escargot.
