Caprese Stuffed Garlic Butter Portobellos







For anyone who loves mushrooms, this recipe is pretty delicious! It's also an easy solution to combine! These low-carb Caprese Garlic Butter-Stuffed Portobello's are like little miniature pizzas on a mushroom! They are plentiful enough to serve as a main course.

INGREDIENTS

Garlic butter:

  • 2 garlic cloves, crushed
  • 1 tablespoon of freshly chopped parsley
  • 2 tablespoons of butter

Mushrooms:

  • fresh basil, grated for garnish
  • 5 balls of fresh mozzarella cheese, thinly sliced
  • 5 large Portobello mushrooms, stem removed, washed and dried with a paper towel
  • 1 cup grape (or cherry) tomatoes, thinly sliced
Balsamic Glaze:
  • ¼ cup of balsamic vinegar
  • 2 teaspoons of brown sugar

INSTRUCTIONS

First, preheat oven to broil / broil over high heat. Place the oven rack in the middle of your oven.

Then, combine all of the garlic butter ingredients in a small saucepan (or microwave safe bowl) and melt until the garlic is fragrant. Brush the bottom of each mushroom and place, buttered side down, on a baking sheet.

Fill each mushroom with the mozzarella slices and tomatoes, and broil / broil until the cheese is melted and golden (about 8 minutes).

(If you are making from scratch, cook while the mushrooms are in the oven.) Combine the sugar and vinegar in a small saucepan over high heat and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat to low; simmer for 5 to 8 minutes or until mixture has thickened and reduced to a glaze.

To serve, garnish with basil, drizzle with balsamic glaze and sprinkle with salt to taste. Happy Cooking Time.
