Delicious Stuffed Mushrooms

I got this recipe from my very best very vegan friend (you know who you are Patty). I have adapted it slightly (because where I shop I don't buy the vegan type butter and such, and Patty forgives me:). They are oh so good, and great for that vegetarian in your life!

Ingredients:

Fresh Mushrooms

bag Frozen Spinach

2-4 Tablespoons butter/margarine

1/4 C Chopped onions

a wee bit of garlic powder

bread crumbs (I use the Italian flavored kind)



Recipe:

Remove stems from mushrooms and dice (stems) very fine. Set aside mushroom tops. Sautee the finely diced mushroom stems and onion in the butter. When onions are transparent, add 1/2 bag of frozen spinach. (These amounts are based on how many mushrooms you make. I usually make the whole box the mushrooms come in. If you did two you would need to use more spinach!) Give that garlic powder a couple of shakes over your concotion. Let that spianch thaw and cook with the sauteed mushrooms and onions for a couple minutes. Now it's time to add the bread crumbs. (If you use unflavored bread crumbs, your likely to want more garlic and some other spices) Add about a 1/4 cup of the bread crumbs at a time. You want this to make a nice "stuffing" consistancy. Once your happy with your stuffing, it's time to stuff it! Fill your mushrooms to the brim with your delicious stuffing. Place the stuffed mushrooms on a pan and bake at 350 degrees for about 20 minutes. This is also a great dish that you can make the night before and bake right before company arrives! You can also add a bit of motzerella cheese to top it off for added flavor (although it doesn't need it).... and the left over stuffing (enjoy it... Yummm)
