Welcome Summer! Stuffed Mushrooms from Stetted

This celebratory post-Memorial Day recipe comes to us from Contributor Megan Myers of Stetted. Part of the Mushroom Channel team is on Megan’s home turf this week attending the International Association of Culinary Professionals (IACP) conference in Austin, Texas so we’ve had the luxury of already being personally assured in person that these stuffed mushrooms are addictive.  No surprise there!

We’ve made it through winter, and it’s time to grill!

Too often vegetarians get neglected when it comes to summer cookouts, relegated to the cold salad table. But cooking for multiple palates and dietary needs is sometimes hard when factoring in our already busy lives.

These stuffed mushrooms come together in a snap and can stand in for a main dish, side, or even a pre-party nibble. I like to top them with panko, Japanese bread crumbs, to add crunch, but they are just as delicious without for a gluten-free meal.


Stuffed Mushrooms

  • 1 pound button or baby portabella mushrooms
  • 4 ounces cream cheese, softened
  • 1 small avocado
  • 1/8 cup chopped jalapeno
  • Lemon juice
  • Panko bread crumbs

If grilling, prepare wooden skewers by soaking in a dish of water as you assemble the mushrooms. This will prevent the wood from scorching on the fire.

Gently dust any dirt off your mushrooms with a clean cloth or a mushroom brush. Remove stem by slightly twisting. Discard stems or save for another recipe.

Halve avocado, remove pit, and mash in a bowl. Add cream cheese, jalapeno, and a dash of lemon juice, and stir until well blended. Pour panko into a bowl or rimmed plate.

Fill mushroom tops with the avocado mixture and level off. Dip each mushroom in the panko and continue with the rest of the mushrooms.

Once all are assembled, carefully slide the mushrooms onto the skewers. If baking in the oven, arrange in a casserole dish.

Grill for 10-15 minutes or bake at 400 degrees for 15 minutes.

Several of you have asked how you could become featured contributors to the Channel and we’re excited to announce that we’re opening up the search for 2011’s contributing spots. We’re hoping to still see some familiar faces in the crowd among new friends.

These are paid positions.  Consider the Mushroom Channel as the perfect outlet for all of your marvelous mushroom discoveries.  All of your posts will feature a short bio that links back to your personal blog and your post will be linked to via both the Mushroom Channel’s Twitter and Facebook pages.

We’re looking for food bloggers with an eye for great food photography and a healthy level of curiosity.  Posts could range from a great new mushroom recipe of your own to an old family favorite or even a profile of a restaurant dish.  Creativity is encouraged and the editorial staff at The Mushroom Channel is more than happy to work with you if you’ve got grander ideas.  Compensation details are readily available, just send your questions to mushroomchannel@gmail.com and we will respond promptly.

How It Works:

1) Submit a sample post with a photo and recipe using fresh mushrooms to mushroomchannel@gmail.com.  Tell us a little bit about yourself in your email and please include a link to your blog. Posts tend to be 250-300 words if you need a frame of reference and it’s okay if the recipe is something you’ve posted in the past. Deadline for submission is Friday, March 4, 2011.

2) When we go through the entries, we’ll be looking for the following in all contributors:

  • Someone who knows how to engage an audience
  • Posts at least weekly on their personal blogs
  • Past mushroom content (Every other post doesn’t need to be about mushrooms, we just want to know that our contributors are fungi fans.)
  • Clear, illustrative photos

3) Selections will be made by Tuesday, March 16th and announced on the Channel. From there a member of the Mushroom Editorial staff will be in touch to sort through compensation and assign deadlines for your five posts in 2011.
