This is seriously like the easiest recipe in the universe, but I’ve also said that before about other recipes so you probably don’t want to take that statement literally, but it is super-duper easy. In under 5 minutes, watch as some stuff you found in your fridge turns magically into an appetizer you could take to your work parties or somewhere else where maybe there’s people you want to impress or something and actually have that happen.
Like, impress people, I mean.
Trust me. It feels really good.
- 16 ounces button mushrooms (about 16 medium-sized ‘shrooms)
- 6 ounces fresh chorizo sausage (or breakfast or Italian or whatever’s fressshhh)
- 2 green onions, thinly sliced
- 2 teaspoons fresh chopped herbs (cilantro, parsley, oregano, thyme, sage – whatever goes with your sausage)
- 2 tablespoons grated parmesan
- Pinch of salt
- Preheat the oven to 375 F
- Wipe the shroomies off with a dry towel to get the dirty bits off.
- Pop the stems out and reserve.
- Scrape out the cavities with a small spoon to make a good-sized hole.
- Mince the mushroom stems and combine with the chorizo, onion, herbs, and parmesan.
- Place the mushroom caps on a baking sheet (maybe covered with foil if you’re feeling lazy and not like cleaning later) and sprinkle with a little salt.
- Fill each cap with 2-3 teaspoons of the mixture, mounding it up.
- Bake 20 minutes.
- Serve hot or at room temperature.
