Stuffed Mushrooms

So I love stuffed mushrooms in all varieties.  Here's a quick recipe I've been using for a few years.  We use it mostly as an appetizer but they would also be an awesome side dish. Cream cheese, garlic, mushroom deliciousness!

Stuffed Mushrooms
25 medium sized mushrooms
1 T. olive oil
2 cloves garlic (minced)
1 (8 oz) block cream cheese
1/4 cup grated parmesan cheese
1/2 tsp. onion powder
1/4 tsp cayenne powder
3 T. butter
1/2 cup italian style bread crumbs

Wash and dry mushrooms and remove stems (but don't throw them away).  Mince stems and cook in olive oil over medium heat until softened (about 4 minutes).  Add garlic and continue cooking for 1-2 minutes or until garlic is fragrant.  Mix garlic mixture with cream cheese, parmesan, onion and cayenne powders.

 Stuff each mushroom cap with appx. 1 tsp of the mixture each, depending on the size of the mushrooms.  

Melt butter in the microwave and add bread crumbs.  Stir to make a coarse crumb mixture.  Dip each stuffed mushroom in crumb mixture to top.  Arrange mushrooms on a large cookie sheet and bake for 20 minutes at 350 degrees until filling is hot and water begins to form under caps. Enjoy!
