Stuffed Mushrooms



  1. Heat the oven to 400 F.
  2. Grease a baking sheet with 2 tablespoons of the oil.
  3. Trim off the bottoms of the mushroom stems.
  4. Pull on the stems to separate them, being careful to leave the caps intact.
  5. Chop the stems and combine them in a bowl with the egg, bread crumbs, cheese, parsley, garlic, and a sprinkle of salt and pepper.
  6. Stir the remaining oil into the mixture and fluff.
  7. Stuff the mushroom caps with the bread crumb mixture, then put them stuffed side up on the baking sheet.
  8. Bake until the stuffing is browned and crisp on top, 15 to 20 minutes.
  9. Let cool, then serve, warm or at room temperature, on toothpicks or with napkins.
