Stuffed Mushrooms with Prosciutto and Gruyere

Here is yet another appetizer I brought to another potluck. Gotta say, I do love a potluck. Why? Because there is lots of sharing and you get to taste everything. Always my fav.

There are million different ways to prepare stuffed mushrooms and here is my take.

You’ll need:
1 lb Cremini mushrooms
1/2 a bunch of green onions
1 cup spinach
1 medium yellow onion
Garlic
1/3 lb of thinly sliced prosciutto
Gruyere Cheese

You’ll also need:
1/2 cup of bread crumbs
1 tablespoon of butter
Italian Seasoning

Dice up the onion.

Mince up some garlic. Or if you’re like me, 6 cloves or so…

well, mushrooms are pretty dirty. The use a spoon to scoop out the stems. Set stems aside. We will use them for the stuffing.

Separate stems and ‘shrooms.

Now, dice up the stems.

Looking’ good.

20120118-104319.jpg
In a skillet, sauté the mushroom caps with a tablespoon or so of butter. We want to soften these up a bit. Sauté on medium heat for 5-6minutes or until slightly tender.

20120118-104434.jpg
While the ‘shrooms are on the stove, let’s slice up the prosciutto.

Oh, look who finally climbed out of her bed! Little Mimi has quite the nose for deli meat!

20120118-104647.jpg
All sliced up.

20120118-104735.jpg
Thinly slice your green onions. These are for the topping.

20120118-104944.jpg
And thinly slice the gruyere too. Also for topping.

20120118-105049.jpg
Combine all fresh ingredients in a large bowl. Add 1/2 cups of bread crumbs.

20120118-105143.jpg
Add a few shakes of Italian seasoning.

20120118-105226.jpg
A few pinches of kosher salt.

20120118-105308.jpg
Mix that all up.

20120118-105423.jpg
Don’t forget about these babies we had sautéing!

20120118-105517.jpg
Lightly spread a little olive on the bottom of a large baking pan. Now, things are finally coming together! Start stuffing!

20120118-105632.jpg
Ok, so… I made a wee bit too much stuffing. Instead of throwing it away, I just poured it all on top of the stuffed mushrooms. I knew everything was going to cool down so in the end it would be ok.

20120118-105810.jpg
Then top everything with gruyere slices and green onions. If you didn’t want to use the extra stuffing, place a slice of gruyere over each mushroom and top with some green onions.

Bake at 325 degrees for about 30min or until cheese is melted and a little bubbly.
