Ingredients

  • 4 (about 12 to 16 ounces, all together) portobello mushrooms, stems and gills removed
  • 3 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh parsley
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt, divided
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground pepper, divided
  • 1 1/2 cups halved cherry tomatoes
  • 1 cup fresh mozzarella balls, drained, patted dry, and cut in half
  • 1/4 cup thinly sliced fresh basil
  • 2 teaspoons balsamic glaze

Instructions 

  • Preheat oven to 400˚F.
  • Prepare the mushrooms by gently popping off the stems. Then, using a spoon, remove the brown gills from inside the cap. Wash the mushroom caps and pat dry with paper towels. Set aside.
  • Melt butter in a small bowl and whisk in parsley, garlic, 1/4 teaspoon salt, and 1/4 teaspoon pepper.
  • Brush the garlic butter mixture all over the mushrooms.
  • Transfer mushrooms to a rimmed baking sheet and bake for 8 to 10 minutes, or until softened.
  • Remove mushrooms from oven; arrange previously prepared cheese balls and tomatoes inside each mushroom cap. Place the cheese and tomatoes close together. You can always add more, or use less, tomatoes and cheese.
  • Season with remaining salt and pepper.
  • Bake for 12 to 14 minutes, or until cheese is completely melted.
  • Remove from oven.
  • Top mushrooms with fresh basil and drizzle with balsamic glaze.
  • Serve.
