Pepper and Cheese Stuffed Mushrooms recipe


  • 24 large fresh mushrooms, 1-1/2 to 2 inches in diameter
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons finely chopped onion
  • 2 tablespoons finely chopped red sweet pepper
  • 2 tablespoons finely chopped green and/or yellow sweet pepper
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 3 tablespoons dry white wine
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/2 cup finely shredded smoked Edam or smoked Gouda cheese (2 ounces)
  • 1/3 cup fine dry bread crumbs


  • Wash and drain mushrooms. Remove stems. Chop enough stems to make 1 cup; set aside
  • Lightly brush top of mushroom caps with about 1 tablespoon of the olive oil.
  • Place mushrooms, cavity side up, on a shallow baking pan; set aside.
  • In a skillet cook chopped stems, onion, red sweet pepper, green pepper, and garlic in the remaining olive oil over medium high heat until tender (3-4 minutes). Stir often.
  • Add white wine, salt, and pepper.
  • Cook another minute or so until most of the liquid has evaporated.
  • Remove from heat.
  • Stir in cheese and bread crumbs. Spoon cheese mixture into mushroom caps.
  • Cover and refrigerate for at least two hours.
  • Bake, uncovered, in a 400 degree oven until mushrooms are tender and filling is hot. This will probably take 15 minutes or so.
