Stuffed mushrooms are not only a popular side dish, they're also often enjoyed as party appetizers. Our rich-tasting stuffing will surprise anyone with diabetes, because "yes, you can" eat these Cheesy Stuffed Mushrooms, because we made them lighter and healthier.

What You'll Need

  • 12 large mushrooms
  • 2 tablespoons finely chopped red bell pepper
  • 1 tablespoon finely chopped scallions
  • 1 tablespoon reduced-fat cream cheese
  • 1 tablespoon finely chopped fresh parsley
  • 2 tablespoons plain or seasoned bread crumbs
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/8 teaspoon black pepper

What to Do

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Coat a baking sheet with cooking spray.
     
  2. Remove stems from mushrooms; chop stems finely. Place mushrooms caps on prepared baking sheet.
     
  3. Coat a medium skillet with cooking spray. Over medium heat, cook chopped mushroom stems, red bell pepper, and scallions 2 to 3 minutes. Stir in cream cheese, parsley, bread crumbs, garlic powder and black pepper and cook 1 to 2 minutes, stirring occasionally.
     
  4. Spoon mixture evenly into mushroom caps and spray tops with cooking spray.
     
  5. Cover and bake about 15 minutes, or until caps are tender. Uncover and bake an additional 5 to 6 minutes, or until tops are brown.

I've tried the store made stuffed mushrooms, but they don't seem that fresh. I will try making my own from this recipe.
