Shrimp Stuffed Mushrooms Marsala Recipe



Shrimp Stuffed Mushroom Marsala, a great appetizer to start off any meal!

I just find it easy to make these in the muffin tins, holds everything together and molds together. One finger food that everyone loves, and it you hate fish, just leave the shrimp off, or even add cooked chicken breast, pepperoni or ham.

1 pound of  whole extra large mushroom stems removed boiled for 10 minutes
rinse well, make sure you get all the dirt off.
1 cup of Italian flavored bread crumbs
Approximately 12 to 15 medium sized cleaned shrimp
grating cheese
1 teaspoon minced garlic
salt and pepper to taste
2 teaspoons melted butter
4 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
1/2 cup Marsala wine
shredded mozzarella cheese.
Mix bread crumbs, cheese, olive oil, butter, garlic and seasoning. Line a lightly oiled mini cupcake tin with mushrooms.  Spoon  breadcrumb mixture into each mushroom. Top with shrimp and shredded mozzarella. Pour wine over each mushroom around a teaspoon or so each. Bake until golden and crispy looking.

Not much better to me than a good stuffed mushroom! I'm sure I've never had one with shrimp but you can believe I'm going to correct that soon. This recipe sounds absolutely wonderful. Can't wait to try it.

I love that you and I use our muffin tins in such clever ways. I guess it's one more thing we have in common besides our names and love for food ;o)

This is a fabulous recipe. I'll have to try this out with crimini mushrooms and maybe a little gorgonzola cheese ;o)

Hope your day is filled with joy and creative ideas like this one.
