Smoked & Grilled Stuffed Mushrooms
Ingredients: 40 Large white mushrooms. 5 cloves garlic. 1 stick butter. 5 stalks chives. Salt & pepper. Cheddar cheese. Prep: Soak mushrooms in cold water while pulling off its base or stem. Put stems in a bowl. Set the mushroom head upside down on an ungreased cookie sheet that will fit 40 large mushrooms (Approx 14X20). Melt butter in the microwave at full power for 1 minute. In a food processor or chopper, finely chop the mushroom stem, garlic and chives. Add the melted butter until the consistency is like mashed potato. Place in a bowl and add 1/2 cup finely shredded cheddar cheese (Mild or sharp). Mix all together then start stuffing the mushroom until the mix is all gone. Place some hickory smoking chips in your grill right before you put the cookie sheet on the grill. Close lid to smoke for 20 to 30 minutes, depending on your coal’s heat intensity. To know if it is done, mushroom will have a smooth glazed look on the body. Sprinkle with finely chopped parsley before serving.
