Stuffed Mushrooms

Prep: 5 minutes +2 hours chilling
Cook: 6-8 minutes
Yield: 8 servings

16 ounces whole mushrooms
8oz cream cheese, softened
1 package cheese dip mix
1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese
1/4 cup shredded Parmesan cheese
1 Tbsp olive oil

Wash mushrooms thoroughly and dry on a paper towel. Remove stems and chop finely until you have three tablespoons.

Mix chopped stems with cream cheese and dip mix. Cover and chill for 2 hours.

Line a baking sheet with foil and spray with cooking spray. Brush the rounded tops of the mushrooms with olive oil and place round side down on the baking sheet. Stuff with cheese mixture and sprinkle with Parmesan cheese.

Broil for 6-8 minutes or until cheese is melted.

Tips and Tricks
I used Warm The Oven Savory Dip Mix from Tastefully Simple, but you could substitute any powdered cheese dip mix, or any vegetable dip mix. Or add your own spices!
Make It Healthier
Use fat-free cream cheese.
How Kids Can Help
Older kids can shred the cheese. Younger kids can mix the filling.
