Stuffed Portobello Mushrooms with Crispy Prosciutto

For this recipe I aimed for a comforting and filling dish that would fit well with the cold weather most of us are experiencing right now. Portobello mushrooms are the perfect vehicle for a warm and savory filling accented by a bright cheese and a fun technique using prosciutto for a decorative flair. This dish can easily be made vegetarian by substituting the crispy prosciutto for thinly sliced baguette crostinis. I hope you enjoy this recipe as much as my family did over the holidays!

Ingredients

For the Stuffing:

  • 1 lb fresh spinach
  • 5 cloves garlic, minced
  • 5 slices prosciutto, roughly chopped
  • 1/2 C goats or blue cheese, cubed small
  • 1/2 onion finely chopped
  • 3 T olive oil (Try Masia El Altet High End)
  • 1 t salt
  • 1/2 t pepper

For the Mushrooms and Crispy Prosciutto:

  • 4 large portobello mushroom caps
  • 4 slices prosciutto
  • 5 T olive oil
  • 1 T salt
  • 1/2 T pepper

Directions

  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Take 2 cookie sheet sized pieces of tin foil and oil both thinly and evenly.
  • Lay the prosciutto flat on one sheet, and place the other sheet on top. Lay the sheets flat on a cookie pan, and use a weight (preferably another cookie pan) to hold the prosciutto flat. Place in the oven with a timer set for 30 minutes.
  • Remove any stems from the mushrooms and work with a pairing knife to hollow out a suitable cavity for the stuffing.
  • Heat a large skillet or stockpot to medium high heat and add 1/2 T of olive oil. Add the chopped prosciutto and saute until it begins to crisp, remove and strain on a paper towel.
  • Add the remaining 2 1/2 T of olive oil and saute the onions for 1 minute until just softened. Add the spinach and garlic and prosciutto and saute until the spinach wilts and is releases moisture.
  • Remove the spinach from the heat and stir in the cubed cheese. Add the stuffing to the mushroom caps.
  • Place the mushroom caps in the oven for 20 minutes. When mushroom caps are done, garnish with standing pieces of the crispy prosciutto.
