how to prepare the mushrooms?
Regardless of the type of mushroom, you’re cooking with; it’s always smart to give them a rinse.
Starting with cleaning the mushrooms. You can wash them under a small stream of water, gently rubbing them with your fingers. The other option is to use a wet kitchen towel and gently rub the skin. Finish drying the mushrooms with a paper towel.
Gently cut the stem (you can chop the stem up finely and use it as part of the stuffing, too), then start to scrape out the gills with a spoon. You’ll want to scrape out the mushroom gills very gently; you can keep them for the mushroom stuffing.
Try to be as gentle as possible because you can crack the mushroom cap, and you don’t want that to happen, or the stuffing will spill out.
How to serve it?
You can serve the stuffed mushrooms with sweet potato fries, regular potato fries, mashed potatoes – basically, any kind of potato. However, you can also go a different route and serve it with a salad or cheesy polenta.
If you’re serving these as a main course, I recommend at least two stuffed portabello mushrooms per person.
How to store the mushrooms?
Store cooked stuffed mushroom in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to three days. If you won’t be using them up within that time, you can easily freeze them.
First, allow the cooked mushrooms to cool completely. Once they’re cool, place the stuffed mushrooms in a single layer on a baking sheet and transfer them into your freezer. Once the mushrooms have frozen, transfer them to airtight containers or heavy-duty freezer bags.
