Inside-Out Stuffed Mushrooms

Rather than taking the time to stuff each mushroom, with this recipe you mix all of the ingredients together.  These mushrooms are a great side dish for almost any meat dish.

1 lb medium whole mushrooms
2 tsp sherry (I used balsamic vinegar)
1 small clove garlic, pressed
2 tsp olive oil, divided
3 TBS Italian breadcrumbs
3 TBS grated Parmesan cheese
1/8 tsp dried thyme, crushed
1/8 tsp salt
1/8 tsp pepper

Preheat oven to 350.  Clean, trim stems, and quarter mushrooms.  Place the mushrooms in a large microwave-safe bowl.  Microwave on high power for 2 to 2 1/2 minutes, stirring after 1 minute, or until the mushrooms begin to soften.  Remove and drain the mushrooms, discarding the liquid.

Place the mushrooms in a 1 1/2 quart baking dish.  Add the sherry, garlic, 1 tsp of olive oil and stir to combine.  In a small bowl, combine the breadcrumbs, Parmesan, thyme, salt and pepper.  Stir 2 TBS of the crumb mixture into the mushrooms and mix well to coat.  Let sit for 5 minutes.

Mix the remaining 1 tsp of olive oil into the remaining crumbs.  Sprinkle over the mushrooms and bake for 15 minutes or until the crumbs are golden brown.

Makes 4 servings
