24 large mushrooms, cleaned and stemmed 3 tablespoons butter 1 medium-size onion, chopped 2 cloves garlic, minced 1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley leaves 1 (8-ounce) package cream cheese, softened and cut into pieces 1/2 cup (2 ounces) blue cheese, softened and cut into pieces* 1 tablespoon fresh-squeezed lemon juice 2 tablespoons cream sherry or port wine (optional) Salt and coarsely-ground black pepper to taste
* Can substitute gorgonzola cheese.
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
Carefully remove stems from mushrooms; chop the stems finely and set aside.
In a large frying pan over medium heat, melt butter. Add chopped mushroom stems, onions, and garlic; saute approximately 5 to 6 minutes or until onions are soft and translucent.
Reduce heat to low; add parsley, cream cheese, blue cheese, lemon juice, and cream sherry or port wine. Stir until cheeses are melted and well blended. Remove from heat.
Season to taste with salt and pepper. You probably won't need any salt, as blue cheese is salty. I do like to add a healthy-grinding of pepper.
Spoon the prepared blue cheese mixture into the mushroom caps, filling generously and mounding the tops. Place stuffed mushroom caps on a baking sheet with sides.
Bake approximately 8 to 10 minutes until mushrooms are cooked and cheese is melted.
Remove from heat and place mushrooms on a large serving plate or platter. Serve immediately.
