Mushrooms Filled with Feta Cheese
Mushrooms stuffed with feta cheese.
Serves: 40
Prep Time: 15 minutes
Cook Time: 15 minutes


3 tablespoons olive oil, divided
3 tablespoons onion, chopped
2 teaspoons garlic, finely chopped
1/3 cup pine nuts, toasted
1/2 teaspoon oregano leaves, crushed
1/8 teaspoon ground black pepper
4 ounces (about 3/4 cup) feta cheese, crumbled (plain or flavored) or goat cheese
1 pound fresh white mushrooms, small

Heat oven to 400 degrees. Remove mushroom stems. Chop stems (makes about 1 cup); reserve. In a medium bowl, place caps; toss with 1 tablespoon of the oil. On a shallow baking pan, arrange mushroom caps, cavity side down; bake until tender, about 10 minutes. In a small skillet, over medium heat, heat remaining 2 tablespoons oil. Add onion, garlic and reserved mushroom stems; cook and stir until stems are tender and liquid evaporates, about 5 minutes. Stir in pine nuts, oregano and pepper. Transfer to a bowl; stir in feta until mixture is well blended. Turn mushrooms over, stuff with cheese mixture. Bake until heated through, about 15 minutes; serve hot.
