Lush Life

To be a lush chef, does not mean to drink in excess - this can result in scary fires and bad dishes. A lush chef is one who enjoys gourmet cooking/baking, often with fresh ingredients and the smart use of one's home bar. If there happens to be half a bottle of beer, a glass of wine, or a sip of brandy left over...well, one cannot be wasteful. I give you permission to imbibe.

Stuffed Mushrooms with White Wine

Libations used: 1/2 cup white wine
Libations left over: Pretty much the whole bottle so serve to your guests!
The Lush Chef decided to host a little Golden Globes viewing party, and in addition to the loads of wine and cheese, I wanted to have a hot appetizer.  These Stuffed Mushrooms from Michigan Wines looked like a quick appetizer to whip up, and you can't go wrong with bread, cheese and wine stuffed in some veggies (they disappeared fast).  I found some huge portobello mushrooms for stuffing at Trader Joe's, but next time I make these, I'm going to get some that are a little smaller so they can heat through a little better.  For the wine, I used some leftover chardonnay I had.

Stuffed Mushrooms with White Wine - makes 16
  • 3 Tbs butter
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1/2 cup seasoned bread crumbs (I used Contadina's Italian flavor)
  • 1/2 cup grated Asiago or Parmesan cheese
  • 1/2 cup white wine
  • 16 medium-large mushrooms, with stems removed (portobello are best)
- In a medium saucepan, heat the butter over medium heat.
- When the butter is melted and foaming up, add the garlic and sauté for about a minute.
- Add the bread crumbs, cheese and wine and mix thoroughly.
- Remove from heat and spoon into mushrooms.
- Place the mushrooms in the broiler for 5-7 minutes, or until browned on top.

Those mushrooms look delicious. I'd love to make my own version of Stuffed Mushrooms with White Wine along with a bottle of wine (red or white). It will surely be a fun and exciting treat for myself and my friends too. liquor online

It looks pretty simple to prepare for something that looks so tasty and presentable. A good glass wine would greatly pair up with these.

I agree with the comments. The simplicity of this recipe can give a tasteful stuffed mushroom. I'm sure that a glass of wine will make the entire eating experience relishing. Anyway, I would love to partner this Stuffed Mushroom with a glass of Cabernet Sauvignon wine from Australia which I bought online last week.
