Cream Cheese Stuffed Mushrooms

Ingredients:

15 large fresh mushrooms
1 small finely chopped onion
2 cloves crushed garlic
1 tbs olive oil
125 g soft cream cheese
2 tsp chopped dill
2 tbs grated cheese (Gouda / Emmental / Cheddar)
salt, pepper, paprika powder
Red chili flakes (optional)


Clean mushrooms. Remove the stems and chop (stems) finely.




Heat oil in a frying pan and fry the chopped stems until all moisture has evaporated.





Add the finely chopped onion and fry for a minute.





Then add garlic and fry for another minute. Season with salt and pepper.

Take off from heat and allow to cool a bit. Mix in the cream cheese, chopped dill as well as grated gouda (or whatever cheese youre using).




Spoon the filling into the mushroom cavities and arrange (a little apart from each other) onto a greased baking tray.




Sprinkle chili flakes on top and bake in preheated oven at 200C for about 25 minutes or until tender. (Oh, they smell soooo good in the oven).










What are you waiting for? We had these for appetizer last night and DH is again on his way to the market to get a fresh batch of mushrooms.


Guten Appetit!!!!
