I just think these official "National day of whatever" are so hilarious. Stuffed mushrooms are certainly good but I couldn't find an appropriate greeting card anywhere! Hallmark is really overlooking a niche here.
Anyway, in the spirit of the occasion, here is my favorite (and frugal) stuffed mushroom recipe from my sister. Try it...today might become your National Day of Yum!
Jill's Stuffed Mushroom Caps
1 pound mushrooms
1 cup seasoned bread crumbs
1/4 cup Parmesan cheese
Optional : I just can't leave a recipe alone so I also add a little minced garlic and chopped or dried parsley. You can leave these out and they are still super yummy.
Wipe dirt from mushrooms. Cut off mushroom's stems and hollow center; set aside. finely chop mushroom stems, mix with bread crumbs and drizzle with enough olive oil to moisten. Combine gently. Spoon breadcrumb mixture into hollowed out mushroom caps and arrange in a glass baking dish. Drizzle with a little more olive oil and bake at 400 degrees for 10-15 minutes or until golden brown. Serves one hungry mama or is a great appetizer for a party!
