Tomorrow, February 4th, is National Stuffed Mushroom Day, so plan ahead to enjoy a plateful.
While stuffed mushrooms have long been a popular hors d’oeuvre, typically stuffed with seasoned breadcrumbs, the availability of large portobello* mushrooms have turned stuffed mushrooms into a main course or an ample first course.
Portobello mushrooms can be stuffed with breadcrumbs, rice or other grains and vegetables, dried fruits, nuts and herbs for a vegetarian meal.
Or, as Giada di Laurentiis does in this video, a stuffing of turkey sausage and cheese makes for a hearty meal.
What’s your favorite mushroom stuffing?
*Variously spelled portabello, portobella and portabella.
