When you are hosting a gathering, you want to put out your best dishes to impress your guests. However, it can be hard to think of new and innovative ideas each and every time. Here is a fresh, new recipe to add to your collection for your next dinner gathering. These grilled spinach stuffed Portobella mushroom tops look like they’ve been catered. But the best part? You’ll barely break a sweat making them!
These finger foods can be made in 3 quick and easy steps. First, brush the mushroom caps in some olive oil and grill them for 6 to 8 minutes. Once they are grilled, you can prepare a mixture for the stuffing made of cream cheese, cheddar cheese, garlic, spinach, and mustard. The caps are then stuffed with this rich and creamy combination and cooked for another 10 minutes, so that the cheese can melt into the mushrooms. Now, doesn’t that make your mouth water? It’s so easy and you can be done in under 30 minutes. Now, that’s perfect for those last minute get-togethers and even for summer barbecues!
