Blue Cheese Stuffed Mushrooms

25 02 2011

I love blue cheese and mushrooms so this recipe sounded right up my ally.  It would be a  great appetizer as well. My husband and I also thought that you could make the stuffing to add to the top of a hamburger or even to top a steak.  A very easy and yet very fancy looking appetizer.

Start by removing the stems and chopping them.  Then cook the stems and green onions in butter in a small skillet until tender.

Mix the green onion mixture with the blue cheese and cream cheese.  Then spoon evenly into the mushroom caps.

Salisbury Steak

My husband has grown up eating Salisbury steak frozen dinners.  I found this recipe and it is probably better for you than frozen dinners. It has become a new favorite in our household and the gravy is great for mashed potatoes as well.

Salisbury Steak

~ 1 pound ground beef

~ 1 egg

~ 3 Tbsp. crushed buttery cracker crumbs, bread crumbs, or Panko

~ 2 Tbsp. finely chopped onion

~ 1/2 tsp. salt

~ 1/2 tsp. pepper

~ 1/4 tsp. poultry seasoning

~ 8 oz. sliced mushrooms

~ 3 Tbsp. butter

~ 3 Tbsp. all-purpose flour

~ 1 1/2 cup milk

~ 1 1/2 cup beef broth

 

1. In a medium bowl, mix together the ground beef, egg, cracker crumbs, onion, salt, pepper and poultry seasoning using your hands. Shape into 6 patties about 1 inch think.

2. Fry the patties in a large skillet over medium-high heat for 3 to 4 minutes per side, or until browned. Drain off grease, and remove patties to a platter.

3. Melt the butter in the same skillet, and add the mushrooms. Cook and stir for about 2 minutes. Sprinkle the flour over, and mix in until blended. Stir in the milk and beef broth. Cook and stir over medium heat until smooth and starting to thicken. Return the patties to the gravy and cook over low heat, uncovered, for 10 minutes, stirring occasionally.
