Easy stuffed mushrooms recipe

As a child I never cared much for mushrooms. However over the years I have grown to enjoy their robust flavour and meaty texture and this easy stuffed mushrooms recipe is one I thoroughly enjoy.

Stuffed mushrooms are extremely easy to make and you can almost combine any ingredients you want. To make our recipe Brooke uses fresh breadcrumbs as the base, then adds diced onion, capsicum, pecorino cheese, bacon and an egg. Through adding an egg not only helps bring the ingredients together it gives the stuffing a light fluffy texture. As mushrooms are a great option for vegetarians these can easily be made without bacon. You could even play around with the flavour combinations using sundried tomatoes, spinach or cream cheese.

To make this recipe, firstly you need to clean your mushrooms well ensuring there is no soil or dirt. After removing the stalks so you have room for your filling. Place the mushrooms on a baking tray while you combine your stuffing. Simply mix the ingredients together in a bowl then fill the mushrooms until they are well packed. Sprinkle with a bit of extra cheese then bake in a moderate oven for 10 to 15 minutes.

We had these for brunch, however they are great as a light starter, lunch or even as a side to a main meal that’s the beauty of this easy stuffed mushrooms recipe.

This is definitely one of my new favourite mushroom recipes, but if you are looking for other appetiser recipes, then you should check out our easy savoury muffin recipe or vegetarian rice paper rolls.

Oysters Kilpatrick

Now I am sure even the thought of an oyster has already turned some of you away, and even for food lover Brooke it pushes the limits. While you real oyster lovers out there would disapprove of cooking or merely dressing an oyster but, for those of you who would prefer to disguise the look of the oyster, oysters kilpatrick is your answer. This oysters kilpatrick recipe is so simple you will wonder why you never tried making them sooner.

These retro Australian classics are one of my favourite ways to eat oysters, as they contain one of the world’s best ingredients BACON! Yes, it might seem like an odd combination. But I guarantee if you go to a bar or a restaurant in Australia and if they have oysters on the menu, they will have oysters kilpatrick (or Killers) on it too.

Oysters Kilpatrick are so easy to make and take very little time to prepare. For this recipe we used a more traditional method combining Worcestershire sauce, tomato sauce, bacon and wait for it the most odd ingredient cheese! Now some other recipes don’t include cheese, and to be honest I am not sure I will include it next time. However, through including it in the sauce I do find it adds a slight creamy texture to the sauce.

The key to this oysters kilpatrick recipe though is trying to balance the sauce. Even though you’re adding it to the oyster you still want to showcase the natural sweet and saltiness of the oyster. In addition depending on where you buy your oysters from they will vary in size. The trick to remember is to adjust the time accordingly depending how big they are. You only want to warm the oyster, not cook it so it starts to shrink or turns to rubber.

To finish off I like to add a couple of drops of Tabasco to each oyster to give them an extra bit of kick.
