Cheese stuffed mushrooms are going to be your next favourite vegetarian appetisers. These cheesy baked stuffed mushrooms are so easy to make that you are sure going to include them in your party starters.
Preheat oven to 180 degrees Celsius/ 350 Fahrenheit
Wash mushrooms well in hot water mixed with salt and then dab them dry with kitchen towel.
Twist the mushroom stems carefully and gently remove them from the mushroom caps and keep the stems separate.
Chop these mushroom stems finely for the stuffing.
In a pan on medium heat, heat olive oil and add garlic, green chillies and chopped onions and stir for a minute till onions become golden brown. Add the finely chopped mushroom stems and fry for another minute till the mushroom stems have secreted all water and the mixture is dry.
Add paprika powder, pepper powder, salt to taste and finally add bread crumbs and stir well for another minute till the mixture is done. Remove off the flame.
In a bowl, transfer the sauteed mushroom stem stuffing. To this add grated cheese, oregano powder and Tabasco sauce.
Take the mushroom caps and stuff the mushroom with the stuffing and press the filling tightly into the mushroom so that it doesn't come out. At the end sprinkle little grated cheese again from the top and press it again.
Dab few drops of olive oil over a baking tin and arrange the mushrooms well.
Bake them on 180 degrees Celsius for 15-20 minutes till the cheese has melted and a golden crust has formed. Serve it with a dip of your choice.
