Smoking Stuffed Mushrooms

Discussion in 'Veggies' started by downstatesmoker, Oct 28, 2009.

  1. Hi Everyone,

    Yeah Yeah, I know Mushrooms are a fungus not a veggie, just seemed the most appropriate location.

    I'm thinking about doing some smoked mushrooms in the near future. Was wondering what everyone's preference for which mushroom they use and what they stuff it with.

    Thoughts?

    I use white button mushrooms and stuff with some sort of cream cheese filling, spinach dip filling would be great in them, sometimes I have wrapped with bacon and other times not.

    I have a neigbor that uses both the larger button 'shrooms and the portabellas. He likes the portabellas because they are larger and has a meater texture, plus they hold a lot more of whatever you're stuffing the mushrooms with. [​IMG]

    I did some this last summer for a party. Here is what I did:
    • 1 dozen large white mushrooms. Remove stems and scrape out inside with spoon (makes room for filling).
    • 1 package of cream cheese (softened).
    • 10-15 oz. package of good crab meat (I prefer the non-canned, but go with what you can get).
    • 1/2 of a red bell pepper fine diced.
    • 1 green onion fine diced.
    • 1 lb bacon.
    Mixx everything except for the mushrooms and bacon together. Season with S&P to taste (can add other seasonings if you want). Put mix into a ziplock bag, cut of one corner and use the bag to pipe the mixture into the mushrooms. Wrap each shroom with bacon, and secure with a toothpick. Smoke for 2-3 hrs. at approx. 250-300°. Enjoy!

    I basically made mushroom ABT's (for those people that can't take the heat [​IMG]). These were a big hit with my friends - no left overs [​IMG].

    We like the big portabellas for stuffing. I like to stuff them with some spicy sausage and some good Guvenie cheese and some bread crumbs and then put them in th oven for a few minutes and then top them with a drezzle of balsomic glaze and yummy. I did see the srooms that Jim (fire it up) did and they looked great.

    2 lb fresh mushrooms

    Brown sausage drain, and mix in cream cheese. Remove stems and fill mushrooms with mixture. Microwave or heat. You can smoke, will be better.

    Portabellas are a great size for your project, and they have plenty of texture. Sounds like you're in for some savory eating. It's all good my friend.

    Don't forget you can take smallish to med. size season with BBQ seasoning (I like to use Emeril's spice recipe). Plus a little salt and fresh cracked pepper. Smoke em about 1 hour 1.5 hours depending on size, server them fresh out of the smoker with a little dippin sauce. They are YUM!
