I couldn’t resist a pack of 4 giant brown mushrooms the other day, I had no idea what I was going to do with them – they usually get put on the braai but sadly Pete was away so it was me, the mushrooms and the oven.
The first couple of mushrooms I stuffed with a mixture of crumbled feta cheese, chopped chives, fresh sliced peppadews and crushed garlic with the chopped stems from the mushrooms, which I then drizzled with olive oil and baked at 200°C for approximately 18 minutes.
I also did a few with sliced garlic, sea salt, black pepper and a good drizzling of olive oil.
Both variations were fabulous, couldn’t be easier to prep and cook and would be perfect as a starter for a dinner party.
Your pictures make mushrooms look so delicious 😀
You are very kind CCU, thank you so much. Have a happy day. 🙂 xo
Deeelish. Faaaaaabulous. I WaAaaant!
Love from me to you. Xx
Love back from me to you! 🙂 xoxoxo
I love stuffed mushrooms! Both variations look delicious.
Thanks Ada. Have a super day. 🙂 xo
I love mushrooms done simply like this. There used to be a great restaurant near us (Italian) that did the best grilled mushrooms and it was my favourite entree to order. They were cooked a lot like your second one. What a great dinner xx
What a lovely compliment to compare my mushies to that of an Italian restaurant, thank you! Have a super beautiful day. 🙂 xo
Mandy, yum! Mushrooms are such a great vehicle for carrying flavours, aren’t they? (I do love them on the bbq though as well!)
I was very tempted to light a fire in Pete’s absence but thought it a bit of a waste just me and my 4 mushrooms. Have a super day Celia. 🙂 xo
Love stuffed veggies! These mushrooms look so juicy and gorgeous.
They really were delicious Angie. Have a beautiful day. 🙂 xo
these mushrooms looks great! Perfect for side dish or an appetizer!!
Hi Sylvia, thanks for stopping by. I’m thrilled you like my idea with the mushrooms. Have a super day. 🙂
I love these mushrooms – so full of flavour and a wonderful texture. Now I would have suggested some blue cheese….but I remember your feeling on the subject!
Hee hee, yes, me and blue cheese are not on friendly terms. Have a beautiful day Tanya. 🙂 xo
I love these simple meals, perfect for when we are on our own! c
Absolutely C! I often cook something easy for 2 meals so I only have to cook every second night when Pete is away. Have a beautiful day and crossing fingers your weather clears so you can go horse riding with your boys and their gals. 🙂 xo
It has dawned clear up here today, I am looking forward to a change of venue! c
Yippee!!! Enjoy. xo
YUM! Love these lovelies — you are right, they would be great as starters — so good!
They would plate so well on a bed of baby rocket with a sprinkling of fresh parsley over the top. have a beautiful day Judy. 🙂 xo
I love stuffed mushrooms & I had to look up peppadews…that’s a new one for me. You’ve reminded me that I haven’t made them in a while so I thank you for the reminder. One thing I do with mine for a few hours before cooking is to marinate them in a plastic bag w/balsamic vinegar & olive oil. Gives a nice little flavor to them.
Ooo Diane, the balsamic must be a fantastic flavour with mushrooms. Have a beautiful day. 🙂 xo
Whoa! Mandy! I love these mushrooms too and you just made me love them more 🙂
You are so kind Sarah, thank you! Have a beautiful day.:-) xo
so easy, healthy and yet tasty for brunch snacking, i love making this with mature button mushrooms
Mushrooms are incredibly versatile Dedy. Have a super day. 🙂 xo
great minds think alike !I just did crab stuffed portabellas this past weekend and they were delish. Wish I would have seen a few of your ingredients in your mushrooms and i would have used it. Yours look AMAZING
Ooo, crab stuffed portabellas sound heavenly Belle! Have a super day. 🙂 xo
These do look good, Mandy. I love the fixins you used in the first’s stuffing and the one with the garlic is calling my name. No matter when you serve them, both kinds would be welcome at my table. 🙂
John, thank you so much, what a lovely compliment. Have an awesome day. 🙂 xo
Very nice! I wonder if these would also be good for a potluck BBQ?
I think these would be fantastic with a potluck BBQ Bunny. Have a happy day. 🙂 xo
I love making this type of a side dish when we braai, and the oven sounds like a great alternative for when Dave is away!
Maybe we will have to get together when Pete and Dave are away and light a fire. Have a super day Tandy. 🙂 xo
Both of these do look yummy and entirely different from each other. I love stuffed mushrooms, trying unsuccessfully once last summer when mine flattened like pancakes, lol! You’ve got some lovely looking dinners for one here, not just for dinner parties! xx
Oh dear, flat mushrooms – I bet they still tasted delicious though. Have a beautiful day Smidge. 🙂 xo
Mandy you’ve gone and made me hungry yet again lol. I absolutely adore this dish. It looks delish!
You are very kind, thank you for such a lovely compliment Kay. Have a happy day. 🙂 xo
I love mushrooms! Especially when they are stuffed. These look fabulous Mandy. A perfect meal for me for sure.
Thanks so much Kristy. They really were delicious. Have a happy afternoon. 🙂 xo
when we were in Santorini many years ago on holiday, we ordered the ‘mussels’ and out came the ‘mushrooms’. You just took me back to those glorious days. We didn’t get what we wanted but boy were those mushrooms good! They were like your second option, lots of sliced garlic and olive oil. Yum Yum
Hee hee, mussels – mushrooms, they both start with mus so guess the confusion came in after that. What a lovely memory, thank you for sharing it with me Lisa. Have a beautiful day. 🙂 xo
These look great – the large brown mushrooms are so versatile, they’re great thrown on the barbie as well.
Hi Elizabeth, welcome and thanks for stopping by. Sadly my hubby is away again so no mushrooms on the barbie for me for a while again. Have a beautiful weekend. 🙂
I love these big portabello mushrooms, the perfect vehicle for stuffing and both your versions look terrific!
Thanks so much Betsy. Have a super week ahead. 🙂 xo
Mouth-watering!! That sounds nicer than drooling doesn’t it 🙂 Love the idea of the feta one ….
Mouth-watering is somewhat more “larney” I guess. Have an awesome Sunday Claire. 🙂 xo
Those pictures make mushroom lovers (including myself) drool big time. DELICIOUS!!!
What a lovely compliment Nami, thank you! Have a super day. 🙂 xo
I am drooling as I can just imagine how wonderful it is going to taste. I usually cook my stuffed mushrooms out on the grill but in the winter time it would be nice to try it in the oven. Have a super week. Take Care, BAM
Must say Bam, the oven isn’t a bad second to the grill. Have a lovely day. 🙂 xo
