4 large brown mushrooms
1 tsp butter
4 Tbsp cream cheese with onion & chives
2 tsp finely chopped garlic
½ tsp finely chopped chillies
1 Tbsp freshly chopped parsley
3 Tbsp onion flakes (dried)
50g Cheddar cheese, finely grated
butter, for brushing
Remove the stalks from the mushrooms.
In a bowl, mix together the butter, cream cheese, garlic, chillies and parsley.
Fold in the onion flakes and half of the Cheddar cheese.
Fill the mushrooms with the stuffing and sprinkle the remaining Cheddar cheese on top of each mushroom.
Liberally brush the underside of the mushrooms with butter and place on a greased oven tray.
Bake for 15-20 mins until cooked through and serve immediately.
Makes a delicious accompaniment to a braai and served on top of a steak.
Leave out the Cheddar cheese for a less rich version.
