Grilled Stuffed Mushrooms

We love our mushrooms!  Mushrooms are quite versatile as they can be eaten raw or cooked, and they can be cooked in a variety of ways.  My preference is to buy mushrooms directly from one of the local mushroom farms especially for canning, freezing or bulk cooking.  However, a fair share of the mushrooms we buy also come from the grocery store.  When buying from either source there is the option to get larger stuffing mushrooms, one of our favourite ways to enjoy as an appetizer.

Large mushrooms (aka stuffers) can be stuffed with a fruit or vegetable mixture, bread stuffing, escargot, or a seafood mixture.  The possibilities are almost endless.  Stuffed mushrooms are delicious but grilled stuffed mushrooms are divine!  Grilling adds a hint of smokiness to the grilled stuffed mushrooms that can't be duplicated in the oven. 

I made grilled stuffed mushrooms as an appetizer at our vacation home.  The stuffing was simply cubed bread with a little butter, sea salt, pepper, finely chopped onions and homemade poultry seasoning.  I mixed the bread cubes with the butter and seasonings then formed into generous sized balls to fit inside the cap of each mushroom.  I placed the stuffed mushrooms into a foil baking dish then topped with shredded mozzarella cheese.  The stuffed mushrooms were cooked on indirect medium heat on the grill until the cheese was bubbly with golden brown highlights.  The grilled stuffed mushrooms delicious and ever so easy to make, perfect as an appetizer!
