Garlic Stuffed Mushrooms

– Garlic Stuffed Mushrooms –

Spaniards are huge lovers of garlic, and with good reason why, garlic is the one root vegetable that can transform any dish, and give it a distinct and memorable flavor. Infact, there are few dishes in Spain that don´t contain garlic, and I believe it´s only dessert´s that don´t contain this pungent vegetable. Now, what happens when you get some fresh mushrooms and stuff them with garlic? You end up with one of the best tapas ¨appetizer¨ you will ever taste. This recipe of garlic stuffed mushrooms truly brings out the flavor of the garlic, as it sizzles inside of the mushroom while being cooked. Watch the video below on how to easily make these garlic stuffed mushrooms. Unless you are a Count Dracula, this will surely become one of your favorite appetizers ever. Enoy!

    Hi, question = how far in advance can I stuff the mushrooms before baking them? I thought that the oil might make the mushroom soggy if I did it hours before or the night before.
    I love your 20 min Paella by the way, it’s a dinner party favorite!

      You can stuff ahead of time, the oil wont make the mushroom soggy, about 8 hours in advance 🙂 much love
