Meaty Portobello Mushrooms stuffed with garlicky breadcrumbs and baked to perfection.
These succulent mushrooms are simply the best! I think I could eat these every day and not get bored. It’s impossible to say NO to warm, flavorful Portobello mushroom stuffed with crunchy, garlicky breadcrumbs. I hope you’ll give this recipe a try. The ingredient list is short and the cooking doesn’t require much effort. Let’s get started!
Start with prepping the mushrooms. Using your fingers, peel the skin off the mushrooms.
Set the mushrooms aside and prepare the stuffing. I’d like to point out that I have always used an Italian loaf in this recipe. However, this time around, I decided to try making these with my favorite rye bread that has nuts and seeds in it. It turned out so great, so feel free to use any bread you have available. You’ll need about 3 slices of slightly stale bread for the breadcrumbs. Just break the bread into pieces and place them in a small electric chopper or food processor. I recently got this amazing Ninja Express Chopper and I cannot say enough good things about it. It is a true helper in the kitchen. I used it to chop the onions and mushroom stems. I also chopped the fresh greens with it and, of course, I made the breadcrumbs with it. Once the stuffing is ready, it is time to top the mushrooms with the breadcrumb mixture.
Bake these at 350F for about 20-25 minutes, until the mushrooms are tender and the breadcrumbs are golden. Serve with lemon wedges.
