Ingredients

  • 1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 12 large cremini mushrooms
  • 6 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 small shallot, finely choped
  • 3 tbsp dry sherry
  • 2 tbsp fresh parsley, chopped
  • 1 tbsp fresh sage, chopped
  • 1 egg white
  • 75 gm (about 1/2 cup) blue cheese, crumbled
  • 1/3 cup panko crumbs, (gluten-free, if necessary)

Instructions

  • Heat oven to 375°F.  Remove stems from mushrooms and finely chop them. Wipe mushroom caps carefully with a damp soft cloth or paper towel.
  • Toss mushroom caps with 2 tbsp olive oil and salt and pepper on a baking sheet. Place stem side down and bake for 25 - 30 minutes or until tender. 
  • Meanwhile, heat remaining 2 tbsp oil in a medium skillet and add garlic. Cook until golden, 4 - 6 minutes. Transfer to a paper towel to drain. Add chopped mushroom stems, shallot, salt and pepper, cook until shallot is soft. 
  • Add sherry and cook until it evaporates. Remove to a small bowl and stir in parsley, sage, garlic, blue cheese, panko crumbs and finally, the egg white. Stir until well combined. 
  • Fill mushroom caps with 2 tsp of the filling. Return to baking sheet and broil until tops are browned, 3- 4 minutes. Serve hot.

Notes

If you don't have sherry,  you could use another fortified wine like madeira or even a dry white wine or apple cider. These substitutions won't provide the same depth of flavour, but since I only used 3 tablespoons in this recipe, it won't change it too much.
