Hey hi, we have cheesy-veggie things to talk about today!
Stopping in for a quick post today to share these EASY stuffed mushrooms. I absolutely love these mushrooms, as did my family. My go-to recipe idea girl, Lyndsie, suggested that I make stuffed mushrooms for New Years and I was all about it. Plus, I had a surplus of goat cheese on hand that I knew would make for the most perfect filling. I’m just going to go out and say it…these are addicting, and if you make them for New Years I highly suggest that you double the recipe…these go FAST.
Like I said, they’re so easy, just mix up some goat cheese, fontina cheese, parmesan, and a generous amount of fresh herbs. Then stuff it all in some cremini mushrooms and bake. Could not be easier and you can totally stuff the mushrooms in advance and bake before serving. They make for the perfect New Year’s Eve appetizer or snack…which we will be needing many of both in my house.
The new group of visitors arrives today so, let the craziness continue. I am really trying to do my best to soak up all the family time and be in the moment. It’s not the easiest for me, as you may have guessed, I am a workaholic. But I had so much fun on our day of snowmobiling and again snowboarding in the backyard with my brothers and little sister on Christmas, so I’m hoping to spend at least one more full day with everyone before the holidays are over. I know that Red and Kai are dying to take me up on the hill snowboarding (like the real hill, not the backyard) and I promised Cait, Kai’s girlfriend, that I’d go with her, so I’ll have to make that happen this week for sure.
In other news, we don’t have any major plans for New Years, but I’m sure we will be making a feast, as I’ve heard that Lyndsie’s family loves to cook. One thing that I know for sure is that these mushrooms will be on the menu. Along with some cocktails that I’ll be sharing on Friday…
Get excited, they are delish, fun and easy! So what are you guys up to this week? Any New Years plans? I’m planning to share a couple more recipes this week, as well as a fun round-up post, so be sure to check back for those!
OKOK, and when planning your New Year’s menu, just be sure that these herbed goat cheese stuffed mushrooms are on it. I LOVE using the goat cheese in place of cream cheese that’s most typically used when stuffing mushrooms. These are maybe the best stuffed mushrooms ever, the cheese and herb pairing is perfection, and I’m thinking that most of you out there really do need them in you life.
Perfect way to send off 2016 and welcome in 2017 if you ask me!!
Herbed Goat Cheese Stuffed Mushrooms.
- 1 ounce log goat cheese 6-8
- 1 cup shredded fontina cheese
- 1/2 cup grated parmesan cheese
- 1 tablespoon chopped fresh thyme
- 1 tablespoon chopped fresh sage
- 1 tablespoon chopped chives
- kosher salt and pepper
- 16 ounces cremini mushrooms stems removed
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F.
In a medium bowl, mix together the goat cheese, 1/2 cup fontina cheese, parmesan cheese, thyme, sage, chives, and a good pinch of both salt and pepper.
Remove the stems from the mushrooms and spoon the mixture into each mushroom cap, place on a baking sheet. Top with the remaining 1/2 cup fontina cheese. Transfer to the oven and bake for 20 to 25 minutes or until hot and bubbly. Serve warm!
PS. I like to double stuff my mushrooms…the more cheese the better! Yes, please!
