Ingredients

  • 24 chestnut mushrooms, roughly equal in size
  • 200g garlic and herb cream cheese
  • 50g cheddar, grated
  • ½ tsp cayenne pepper
  • Ground black pepper
  • 100g dried breadcrumbs

Put this mixture in a larger, Portobello mushroom for a tasty vegetarian main dish.

Method

  1. Pre-heat oven to 180⁰C/350⁰F/Fan 170⁰C/Gas Mark 5.
  2. Pluck the stems from the centre of the mushroom caps and discard.
  3. Put the cream cheese in a bowl and stir until smooth. Add the grated cheddar, cayenne pepper and black pepper and stir until the mixture is combined.
  4. Spoon the mixture into the cavity in the mushrooms, filling until level with the edges of the mushroom.
  5. Put the caps on a baking tray and sprinkle each one with breadcrumbs.
  6. Bake in the oven for 25 minutes or until the mushrooms are thoroughly cooked.
  7. Serve whilst still hot (with a napkin or plate in case of cream cheese spillages!)
