Baked Mushrooms with Cheese and Garlic - Super Easy Recipe
A quick and easy recipe for absolutely delicious cheesy and garlicky mushrooms.
This recipe can be made Gluten-Free if using gluten-free breadcrumbs and Dairy-Free as well (and Vegan) if using dairy-free butter (or spread) and vegan cheese.
Baked Mushrooms with Cheese and Garlic
You will need:
9 mushrooms (250g, stalks removed)
2 garlic cloves, crushed and chopped
1/4 tsp pepper
1/4 tsp salt
50g grated cheddar cheese
chopped parsley, dill or rocket/arugula for garnishing
Preheat the oven to 200C/gas6/392F (180C for fan assisted ovens)
Grease an oven dish/tray with cooking oil
Clean the mushrooms, remove the stems and place them on the tray/oven dish
Sprinkle the salt and pepper evenly on the mushrooms
Fill the mushrooms with the grated cheese
In a pan, melt the dairy-free butter
Add the garlic and simmer for a few seconds
Add the breadcrumbs and stir
Using a spoon, place the breadcrumbs on top of the cheese-filled mushrooms
Bake for around 15 minutes (until the cheese has melted and the mushrooms are fully cooked)
Garnish with chopped fresh parsley, dill or rocket/arugula/rucola
Instead of Cheddar you can use a few different types of cheese such as Edam, Gouda, Monterey Jack or Cantal
I make these Baked Mushrooms with Cheese and Garlic in small batches and use them most of the time as a side dish.
If you require more or want to use this as a main dish, simply double or triple each of the quantities.
They are best served warm, although, if need be, you can reheat them in the oven for a few minutes, ideally on the same day.
You can add, on top of the cheese, bits of bacon/vegan bacon for an extra bit of flavour.
