Potato Stuffed Spicy Baked Mushrooms

It was an impromptu decision to make these today. I had already prepared the lunch and all was set. Opened my refrigerator and saw I had a few button mushrooms left that should be put to use soon enough or else they may spoil. At first I thought let me make Mushroom Peas gravy and we will be done for the dinner. Then don't know what came to my mind, I decided to make these stuffed baked mushrooms, probably because I had one more leftover I could put to use. I had made aloo paranthas in the morning and had some potato mixture left in the fridge. I am glad I made these baked mushrooms .....These were delicious! We enjoyed having them as a snack.

 My husband poped one HOT mushroom in his mouth (as soon as they came out of oven) and it was a fun show to watch him jumping afterwards :D

These were so perfectly spiced, baked well and smelled so heavenly! And these are one of the quick and easiest appetizers/snack to make.

Here is the recipe (Click here for printable version)

12-15 button mushrooms-large, washed and stemmed
1 large potato (boiled and mashed)
1/2 finely chopped onion
2 medium green chillies finely chopped
1 tsp finely chopped ginger
1/4 tsp garam masala
1/4 tsp red chilli powder
Salt to taste
some cheese (i used pepperjack) to sprinkle.
some red chilli flakes, dried oregano, parsley and basil.
Some parmesan cheese flakes or you can use the shredded dried parmesan cheese.

1. Pre-heat the oven to 400 degree F.
2. Make a mixture for the stuffing by adding potatoes, onions, green chillies, chopped ginger, garam masala, red chilli powder together in a bowl and mix well.
3. Now add the potato mixture filling to the top in each mushroom.
4. Now sprinkle some shredded pepperjack cheese on each mushroom. Then sprinkle some of red chilli flakes, oregano, parsley and basil. Finally top it off with some parmesan cheese.
5. Arrange the mushrooms on a greased baking sheet and bake the mushrooms for about 20-25 minutes.

Enjoy them warm (not HOT ) :D

I am drooling! As you know from my blog, I'm an absolute mushroom freak! This reminds me that I've got to write a post about my lobster stuffed mushrooms. But oh, mushroom + potato? Be still my heart :-) Thank you so much for sharing your creative use with us! I wouldn't have thought to have done that. If you want a simple mushroom dish, I've got my creamed mushrooms and kale up and it's just ridiculous!

I have a feeling Mountain Man is going to be doing the "too hot" dance when he pops one of these straight out of the oven! They look like a perfect little appetizer :)

Garam masala along with parsley, oragano and basil? I am curious how it will smell and taste. Thanks for the entry. Pictures look very good.
