Beef and Blue Cheese Stuffed Mushrooms

Truly a bite-sized wonder. Mushroom caps are stuffed with a rich blend of Ground Beef, blue cheese and chives, then baked until golden brown and bubbly.

Ingredients

  • 1/2 pound Ground Beef
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 36 to 40 small button or cremini mushrooms (about 1-1/2 to 2-inch diameter)
  • 1/3 cup crumbled blue cheese
  • 1/4 cup soft whole wheat bread crumbs
  • 3 tablespoons minced chives
  • 1/2 teaspoon steak seasoning blend
  • Minced fresh chives (optional)

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 375°F. Remove and reserve stems from mushrooms. Season mushroom caps with salt; set aside. Mince stems to yield 1/2 cup; discard remaining stems.

  2. Combine Ground Beef, minced stems, blue cheese, bread crumbs, 3 tablespoons chives and steak seasoning. Spoon beef mixture evenly into mushrooms.

  3. Place stuffed mushrooms on rack in broiler pan. Bake in 375°F oven 15 to 20 minutes. Sprinkle with additional chives, if desired.
