stuffed portabello shrooms

portabello mushrooms have to be one of my top 5 favorite foods. i almost forgot that i had a few in the fridge, and wanted to use them up before they went bad. i saw a recipe for stuffed portabello mushrooms a while ago, and never got to doing it until tonight at about 10 o’clock at night. i used this recipe just as a base to see what types of flavors and stuff to add. i ended up using ground turkey because it was all i had on me, and it worked out just fine. i don’t usually measure things out when i’m cooking stuff off the top of my head, and like i mentioned, i didn’t use that exact recipe from the site. here’s what i did use:

3 portabello mushroom caps, stem and dark parts scooped out
1 lb ground turkey
a few strips of bacon chopped up
half of an onion chopped
few cloves of garlic chopped
about a tablespoon or more of tomato paste
a few sundried tomatoes chopped
a good tablespoon or more of herbs de provance
little bit of garlic salt
little bit of sea salt
little bit of ground black pepper
some leftover shredded 4 cheese mix
grated mozzarella cheese

prehead oven to 400 degrees
1) heat pan with some evoo, then toss in onions and garlic, til soft
2) add chopped up bacon and ground turkey til browned
3) add spices + sundried tomatoes
4) add tomato paste, mix around
5) take the meat mixture and add to the portabello mushroom caps
6) add the shredded/grated cheese atop meat
7) put in oven for about 15 minutes, til cheese is gooey and melty on top

i also cooked up some yummy garlic cheese wedges again, because they go so well with…everything! since tony loves them so much, i knew he would at least enjoy those, if not the mushrooms. but the good thing is he enjoyed the stuffed mushrooms as well =)

oh how i love garlic. used plenty of it for these dishes, and was inspired to do so because my sister in california went to the gilroy garlic festival (jealous!).  you can never have too much garlic in my opinion. =)
