- 24 large fresh button mushrooms
- 1/4 cup safflower oil margarine, Hollywood
- 1/4 cup diced shallots
- 1 garlic clove, minced
- 2/3 cup bread crumbs, Pioneer, very fine
- 1/2 cup shredded fresh mozzarella, Del Pastore
Clean the mushrooms by washing and patting them dry or brushing. Remove the stems and chop finely (reserving the caps to be filled later), making approximately 1 cup of mushroom-stem pieces.
Using a medium saucepan, melt the safflower margarine. Add the chopped mushroom stems, shallots, and garlic; saut until tender. Add the bread crumbs and mozzarella and toss until mixed. Remove from the heat and fill the reserved mushroom caps with the mixture.
Preheat the oven to 425?F. and arrange the caps, filled side up, on a baking sheet. If desired, sprinkle additional shredded cheese on the tops. Bake 8 to 10 minutes until thoroughly warm.
