Hot & Spicy Stuffed Mushrooms

Mushrooms are the perfect foil for a zesty stuffing combining the heat of cherry peppers and the sweetness of raisins and sugar. If you prefer a milder stuffing that is still loaded with flavor, buy mild cherry peppers instead of hot ones.

Serves 6 to 8

What You Need:

  • 8 ounces white mushrooms
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 4 hot cherry peppers, seeded and minced
  • 2 cups fresh bread crumbs
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 1/2 cup raisins
  • 1 tablespoon fresh parsley, minced
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper

What You Do:

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Remove the stems from the mushrooms and set the caps aside. Chop the mushroom stems and set aside. Heat 1 tablespoon of the oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the mushroom caps and cook for 2 minutes to soften slightly. Remove from the pan with a slotted spoon and set aside.
  2. Return pan to the heat. Add garlic and cook until fragrant, about 1 minute. Add the reserved mushroom stems, cherry peppers, bread crumbs, sugar, raisins, parsley, and salt and pepper to taste. Cook for 2 minutes, mixing well. Add more oil if necessary for the stuffing to hold together.
  3. Fill the mushrooms with the stuffing mixture and arrange on a lightly oiled baking sheet. Drizzle with any remaining oil, and bake until the mushrooms are soft and the tops are lightly browned, about 10 minutes. Serve hot.
