Stuffed Mushrooms for Happy Hour
16 Medium to large Mushrooms (white button or crimini)
3 tablespoons melted margarine
2 cloves garlic, minced
1/2 cup shredded cheese (Jack or cheddar)
2 tablespoons dry white or red wine (I like red)
1 teaspoon soy sauce
1/2 cup bread crumbs (fresh are best! I use 2-3 slices of fresh wheat bread cut into coarse crumbs.)
1 tablespoon chopped fresh parsley (optional)
Clean mushrooms by wiping them clean with a paper towel. Remove stems to use later in the recipe. Coat the mushrooms in melted margarine. Place them on a foil lined cookie sheet.
Mix together the remaining margarine and the rest of the ingredients. Add in the mushroom stems - finely chopped.
Loosely fill the mushrooms, pressing the stuffing in lightly.
Broil 6 inches from broiler unit for approximately 3 minutes. Serve these warm. Makes 5 servings of 3 each with one left over for the cook to try. Sprinkle the chopped parsley over the top, if you like.
