Stuffed Mushrooms With Ham

METHOD

  • Wash and trim the end of stems from mushrooms.
  • Pop remaining stem out.
  • Chop stems and set aside.
  • Melt 2 tablespoons butter; brush over mushrooms.
  • Spray a shallow baking dish (about 8-inch square, or one which will fit mushrooms in one layer) with butter-flavoured spray or grease with butter.
  • Heat remaining 2 tablespoons of butter in a skillet.
  • Chop green onions; combine with reserved chopped mushroom stems, ham and garlic.
  • Add to skillet along with the spinach; sauté until tender.
  • Add bread crumbs, salt, and pepper to vegetable mixture; stir well.
  • Add a little cream to moisten more if necessary.
  • Fill each mushroom cap with a little of the stuffing, mounding up.
  • Sprinkle with Mozzarella cheese.
  • Bake at 350° for about 20 minutes, until cheese is melted and mushroom caps are tender.
  • Makes about 16 to 20 stuffed mushroom appetizers.
  • These would also be very good with crumbled cooked bacon, about 1/4 cup, if you don't have or care for the ham.
