Stuffed Mushroom With Cream Cheese




Indian Premier League ( IPL ) season is all in full swing and my favourite teams are Rajasthan Royals & Pune Warriors and Mumbai Indians ( Rahul Dravid and Saurav Ganguly) both of whom I admire as sound cricketers and nice human beings. As 20-20 overs provide us with a quick dose of high entertainment, I too decided to prepare something quick and nice to eat. 




When guests have given you a notice of few hours to drop in , you get in the T20 mode and prepare this stuffed mushrooms which are not only a unique snack, but also a yummilicious dish to taste as well. Especially for all the veggies, it will be loved. So I hope it scores a century in the hearts and minds of all my readers and fellow bloggers. 


Ingredients:

12 large Button mushrooms
1 Onion, diced finely
4 Garlic pods, finely chopped
1/4 cup Cream cheese
Extra Virgin Olive oil
2 tbsp fresh Chives, chopped
Pinch of Pepper powder 
Pinch of Salt or more to taste


Method:
Pre-heat Oven to 350 Degrees F(180 Degree C). Grease a baking tray with olive oil.
Wash the mushrooms and by using a knife remove the stems. 


Save the mushroom caps and chop the stems finely. In a small saucepan fry diced onion and garlic on low flame till it becomes tender.Add chopped mushroom stems and fry till the water evaporates. Sprinkle salt and pepper powder. Let this mixture cool. Once cool add cream cheese and chives, mix well.
Spoon the ready mixture into the mushroom caps and place them in baking sheet facing stuffed side up. Repeat the same till you finish with all mushroom caps Lightly spray with oil. Bake on the middle rack of the Oven and bake until the bottoms are golden color and tops are light, about 10 minutes.
