I’m an obsessive compulsive when it comes to trying new things in the kitchen. This recipe is from a time when I’d just moved to Minneapolis and my new roommate was throwing a game night party. So of course, naturally, my host skills went into overdrive and I decided to whip up a few delights for the guests.
Here’s one of them. Literally this was just thrown together and it turned out so well that I just had to share. Watch for it in the next version of mom’s famous favorite recipes cookbook.
1 pkg mushrooms
1/2 lb ground pork
1 cup diced celery
1/2 cup diced onion
2 tsp chili powder
1 tbs seasoned salt
1 tsp garlic powder
1 cup bread crumbs
1 pkg cream cheese
Remove stems from mushrooms and chop finely, place mushroom heads upside down on baking sheet.
FILLING: Brown pork with celery, onion, and chopped mushrooms. Season with chili powder, seasoned salt, garlic powder. Add in bread crumbs at end. Let cool.
Place 1 tbs of cream cheese in each mushroom head and fill with heaping mounds of the filling. Bake at 375 degrees for 20 minutes or until done.
Serve! This is a party favorite for sure. Just make sure to get those mushrooms stuffed, we found ourselves sampling a bit too much of the stuffing mixture before we even got them into the oven. So delicious!
There isn’t a better way to bring friends together then great food, a couple innovative board games and amazing company around the living room fire. A little good wine goes a long way too.
