Guacamole Stuffed Mushrooms Tips
I’m not so sure I can call this a recipe so much as an inspiration…
- Start with good guacamole. You can follow my Simple Guacamole Dip tutorial or use your favorite recipe.
- Prep your mushrooms. Gently brush off any dirt with a wet paper towel. Pop out the stem and lightly brush the outsides of the mushroom with olive oil.
- Bake the mushrooms for about 10-12 minutes in a 350 degree oven or until the mushroom is tender, but still firm.
- Remove the mushrooms to a serving platter, pouring off any juices that have pooled in the center cavity.
- Fill the center cavity with guacamole and enjoy!
Some tips I’ve learned along the way:
- You can cook the mushrooms with the guacamole filling in the center cavity. I like my quac room temperature or cool, so I added it at the end. But, I did try it both ways.
- Baby bellas or white mushrooms both work great.
- Check out The Best Way to Keep Guacamole Green by The Kitchn. They recommend adding a thin layer of water over the guacamole and pouring it off when you are ready to use it. I have also placed a piece of plastic wrap on top. But, I usually have to scrape off a brown top layer before I use it.
- 8 ounces of mushrooms, cleaned and stems removed (such as white or baby bella)
- 1 Tablespoon olive oil
- 1 Quacamole Recipe (Follow this [url href=”http://www.dinner-mom.com/simple-tutorial-for-fresh-guacamole-dip/” target=”_blank”]Simple Guacamole Recipe[/url] tutorial, use your favorite recipe or use a pre-made dip from the store.) If using The Dinner-Mom recipe, cut the recipe in half to avoid to much excess.
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
- Lightly brush the outsides of the mushrooms with olive oil.
- Bake for approximately 10-12 minutes or until the mushroom is tender, but still firm.
- Remove mushrooms to a serving platter, pouring off excess juices.
