Stuffed Portabello

I bought 2 large portabello mushrooms the other day and decided to stuff them as a side for dinner.  They were so filling they could have been dinner itself.  The filling can be used to stuff smaller mushrooms for an appetizer...just reduce the cooking time a bit.

2 large portabella mushrooms
5 - 6 oz. frozen chopped spinach, thawed and squeezed dry
1 egg, slightly beaten
1/4 cup sour cream
1 green onion, finely sliced
1/2 cup crushed croutons
1/4 cup feta cheese, crumbled
1/4 tsp. granulated garlic or garlic powder
1/4 tsp. each salt and pepper
1 cup shredded mozzarella, divided

Clean the mushrooms by removing the stems and scraping out the gills.  Brush the caps with a little olive oil and set them cap side down in a baking dish.

For the filling:
Combine all other ingredients, reserving 1/2 cup of the mozzarella. Divide the mixture evenly in the mushroom caps.
Bake, uncovered at 350F for about 30 minutes. Sprinkle the reserved 1/2 cup cup cheese over the tops and bake about 10 minutes more.

    Your pictures always look GREAT.
    The new light over the table gives you exactly the right lighting for photographing food.
