    Based on the ideas and inspiration of others on SMF decided on Stuffed mushrooms for a side for some ribs I am doing for an early dinner before trick-or-treating.

    Got a nice carton of mushrooms, some were good sized. I chopped up 3 of them as part of the filling along with some minced garlic, onion, bread crumbs, italian sausage, and parmesan. I seasoned the mix with red wine, lea and perrins, thyme, oregano, and black pepper.

    I took the stems out of the shrooms, and also scraped out the gills. Stuffed with the stuffing, and topped with a pickled jalapeno. I will plan on doing them on the smoker for about an hour and ahalf, and I may top with some Asiago cheese for the last part of the smoke.

    ingredients(i decided against using the cream cheese pictured)



    mushrooms cleaned and ready to stuff:



    stuffing:



    stuffed and ready to go:





    ribs just went on, shrooms to follow in about an hour and a half.

    thanks for looking, more to follow

    Those look like they will be tasty!
    Nice idea scraping the gills out, will help to cut down on that bitter flavor they tend to have.
    I usually take the stems out and mince them and use those as part of the mixture as well.
    liked the addition of the jalapeno slice on top, makes for a nice presentation.

    Those are looking mighty tasty. I also chop the stems when I make them.
    Just saw some panchetta at the local market so I will try adding that next time - Like the jalopeno on top

    thanks folks,

    I moved to fast to use the stems(I am also baking a couple cakes to make a pumpkin shaped cake for my daughter), otherwise they would have gone in the mix as well(i had to sacrifice a couple whole mushrooms to make up for that omission).

    I also figured jalapeno makes everything better. [​IMG]

    Nice looking cake, looks like your Daughter was having a blast.
    What did you use for the stem? Looks like maybe a frosted upside down ice cream cone?

    Man, that is great! I forgot all about your awesome mushrooms when I started seeing your pumpkin cake and daughter~ I remember when my kids were small enough to sit on the table and play with decorating a cake as well.

    Beautiful pics, and great looking pumpkin cake too. Thanks for sharing. Did your shroomers turn out good with the Asiago? Love Asiago cheese here...

    Happy holloween!

    the shrooms tooka bout 2 hours total, i topped them with asiago for the last 15 mintes of smoking. Really nice taste. Next time I may add some marinara to the italian sausage mix, but no other modifications.

    just on the smoker:
