Spinach – Stuffed Baby Bella Mushrooms

I couldn’t resist buying an over-sized box of gorgeous baby Portobello mushrooms the other day. I figured mushrooms always cook-down in
recipes, so this giant container of mushrooms certainly wouldn’t go to waste.

The remaining mushrooms 
I added a bunch to a mussels- onions- garlic- white wine
sauce – served over angel hair pasta; made a fluffy mushroom and cheese omelet;
and finally, prepared spinach-stuffed mushroom caps which are great as an
appetizer or as a side dish, depending on the size of the caps. There are still
some mushrooms left for another day.

We thoroughly enjoyed all of those dishes, but I think Doug
particularly favored the stuffed mushroom caps – perhaps because they were part
of his Father’s Day dinner!

12 Baby Bella mushroom caps, wiped clean with a damp paper
towel
1 Tbsp. olive oil
1 Tbsp. unsalted butter
1/4 cup finely chopped sweet onion
1 medium garlic clove, minced

2 to 3 Tbsp. light cream

2. Remove stems from mushroom caps and finely chop them.
3. Heat olive oil and butter in a skillet on medium-high
heat. Add onions cooking them until soft, but not brown. Add chopped mushroom

4. Reduce heat; add minced garlic to onion-mushroom
mixture; cook for another minute. Add spinach and cook 5 more minutes, stirring
constantly. Stir in light cream until well-combined.
5. Remove from heat and cool slightly. Add cheese, salt and pepper, and dill, if using.
6. Arrange mushrooms caps (bottom-side facing up) on a parchment-lined
baking dish. Divide filling mixture evenly among them.

browned and mushrooms are thoroughly heated.
