Mr. Food: Pepperoni Pizza Stuffed Mushrooms

What You’ll Need

  • 1 pound large fresh mushrooms
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1/3 cup Italian-style bread crumbs
  • 1/3 cup chopped pepperoni slices
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/3 cup pizza sauce
  • 1/4 cup shredded mozzarella cheese

What to Do

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Gently clean mushrooms by wiping them with damp paper towels. Remove stems from 12 mushrooms; set aside caps. Finely chop mushroom stems and remaining whole mushrooms.
  2. In a medium skillet over medium heat, melt butter; saute chopped mushrooms 3 to 4 minutes, or until tender. Remove from heat and add bread crumbs, pepperoni, oregano, garlic powder, salt, and pizza sauce; mix well.
  3. Using a teaspoon, stuff mushroom caps with stuffing mixture. Place on baking sheet.
  4. Bake 15 minutes. Remove from oven and sprinkle each with mozzarella cheese. Return to oven 5 minutes, or until cheese is melted and mushrooms are heated through. Serve immediately.
