Active work time: 35 minutes | Total preparation time: 45 minutes | Serves 8
  • 24 large white mushrooms
  • 1/4 cup (1/2 stick) butter, melted
  • Salt, pepper
  • 1/2 cup finely minced onions
  • 1/2 cup finely minced shallots
  • 3 tablespoons oil

  • 1/2 cup plain dry bread crumbs
  • 2/3 cup grated Gruyere cheese
  • 2/3 cup grated Parmesan cheese

Step 1Remove stems from mushrooms. Finely mince stems and set aside. Place mushroom caps on baking sheet. Brush caps with melted butter and season with salt and pepper. Set aside.

Step 2Cook onions and shallots in oil and any remaining butter in skillet over medium heat until tender but not browned, 3 to 4 minutes. Add minced mushroom stems to onion mixture.
