Wow! Great Stuffed Mushrooms!

Recommended Posts

Because of the "What's for Dinner" thread, I bought ground lamb at an outrageous price, $8.99 per pound. (I had to try the gyros!) I had left over 'shrooms that I bought for pizza. I googled lamb stuffed mushrooms and regrettably can't attribute the author, but had a yum moment tonight.

I mixed about 1/8 cup ground lamb with about 3 T. minced onion and scallion, a T. of chopped sage, and the chopped remains of the mushroom stems. Then I mixed in approximately 1/3 cup feta cheese. I filled the mushrooms with that mixture and baked them at 400 degrees in a casserole dish for 30 minutes. I originally placed those shrooms on a cookie sheet, but realized they'd produce liquid, so stuck them in a casserole dish.

Once they were cooked through and browned nicely, I removed the stuffed mushrooms to a plate. I added about 2 T Greek yogurt to the baking juices, stirred that up, and drizzled the sauce over the stuffed 'shrooms. OMG. It tasted better than beef stroganoff.

We had other stuff tonight, but it was all about the 'shrooms. I love it when we discover new good things, this was one of those moments.

that sounds deee licious!! what a great idea - i am *always* stumped by the 'what's for dinner?' question - nobody ever makes any suggestions. some day i'm gonna feed them cat food. maybe that'll teach 'em HAHAHA

marilyn - the grocery store didn't have any ground lamb (just my luck) the recipe i was loosely following called for 2lbs so i subbed 1 lb ground pork and 1 lb (of all things) organic buffalo meat that was on manager's special. i would bet 1 lb of pork and 1 lb of lean ground beef would work pretty well also. 4 kids + no $$ = i am the Queen of the Improvise.

("yes. there IS mayonnaise in this cake. i had no eggs. you want cake or not?")

ROFLOL notme!

Good for you for improvising! For the gyros, I'm using lamb and lean ground beef and I'm going to whirl a few pieces of bacon up in the blender, or maybe not. (The thought of having to wash my blender after whirlling up bacon is right up there with eating cat food!) I was planning to use lamb and ground chicken, but the grocery didn't have ground chicken.

I had the 'shrooms for lunch today. I eat before everyone else and everyone in sniffing distance of the lunchroom said, "Wow that smells great, what are you eating?" It was kind of gratifying being the object of food envy from my co-workers that can (and do) eat anything on the planet! :D

Did you make the gyros yet?

i did make the gyros :) i have a food processor from 1985 (seriously! it is a GE and it still works lol) so it was 1 lb ground pork, 1 lb ground buffalo about 8 cloves of garlic and 1/2 an onion, salt n pepper - just about killed the old processor <been trying to kill this thing for yearssss.... ! anyway, got that ground up into a "paste" and jammed it into a loaf pan and baked at 375F for about an hour , took it out of the oven (drain grease) then set another weighted loaf pan on top of it for 20 minutes and it squished the rest of the grease out of it. it was the first time i made it this way and it turned out so good (and it was easy) that i won't make the meat any other way now. i may use different meat, though, just for variety. or what's on sale lol! did you try the udi's pizza crust? that is what i ate my 'gyro' on (just made a pizza out of it and put tomatoes, lettuce, onion, cucumber/yogurt stuff that i can't spell, etc on at the end) next time i might just make a giant pita out of the crust and bite it in a huge sammich. yummmzz :) first, i am trying your mushrooms :D i'll just TELL them it's cat food HAHAHAHAAAA!! :evil:

Wow! That GE food processor can take a lickin and keep on ticking! :D

We had gyros tonight, yum! I used a reciped from the slow cooker 365 site modified with an Allrecipes recipe.

Mine was on a flatbread I make with chick pea flour. (We have an Indian grocery store so the flour is inexpensive.) I haven't tried Udi's pizza dough yet. Is it good?

I for some unknown reason decided to add shredded red cabbage to the yogurt sauce last night. So our sauce was pink! (Not pretty, but by gosh it tasted good!) I loved the gyros!

Gyros will become something we do evey month I think.

By the way, I found a recipe on how to make your own yogurt on the crockpot site. I'm thinking about trying that. :)

Hi Cougie,

Here's the link. I think I remember in the comments section that it said you can make it with lactose free milk but the person who tried it with coconut milk failed. Not sure it will work with your casein free diet, but here it is... I'm pretty sure nobody tried it with cashew or rice milk, and I think the person who tried coconut milk didn't use raw coconut milk. Good luck, hope you have good results with your yogurt making. There's another link for making coconut milk yogurt somewhere on the forum. but I for the life of me can't remember where.

I think I'd try it with homemade almond milk vs. almond breeze. Here's a link that explains that. I had a problem (probably soy connected) with almond breeze...

If it works, let me know! Good luck!
