Garlic, Parmesan Panko Stuffed Mushrooms

Mushrooms, oh mushrooms…how much do I love you?? Let me count the ways. Sautéed, marinated, in my pasta, on my burger….and today, stuffed. Mushrooms are the equivalent of Frank’s Red Hot to me. I put that <bleep> in everything. Since today is stuffed mushroom day, we shall stuff them. Who comes up with these holidays??? I’m not sure but it give me a reason to eat mushrooms. Mission accepted.

 

 

 

After yesterday’s storm (where the heck did THAT come from?!), I’m a wee bit reluctant to stroll over to the grocery store, so raided my fridge to use what I have on hand for this recipe. Not up for the battle of the slush.

Eeek – hate melted. dirty. snow. I digress…

 

 

These tasty little morsels combine garlicky (a word?) panko breadcrumbs with Parmesan cheese. Yes please 🙂 This is a great little appetizer that you can make if you’re entertaining or maybe even as a Grammy snack as you take in the performances this Sunday. Make these and enjoy ’em, then leave me a comment to let me know what you think!
