Spinach and Artichoke Stuffed Portobellos

You may have noticed a number of mushroom dishes already on 2frugalfoodies, but it’s hard to beat a mushroom the size of your hamburger sitting on your plate! This is probably the first in a series of stuffed portobellos- there are so many great things you can do with these huge mushrooms.

2 portobello mushroom caps                      $1.30

3/4 cup asiago cheese, grated                    $1.50

1 cup spinach (frozen)                                    $0.50

1/2 cup artichoke hearts*                            $0.75

1/2 cup bread crumbs                                   $0.40

1 tablespoon butter                                        $0.05

3 tablespoons olive oil                                  $0.10

2 tablespoons 2% milk                                  $0.02

1/2 teaspoon nutmeg**                               $0.05

Salt and pepper, to taste                              $free (ish)

Total cost                                                           $4.67

 

Preheat the oven to 425 degrees. Cut the stems off of the mushrooms and clean the mushroom caps of any debris with a damp cloth.

In a small skillet, brown the bread crumbs with the butter. While these are browning over low heat, multi-task and wring out the spinach. When the bread crumbs are brown, drizzle 2 tablespoons of olive oil over the mushrooms, and then drizzle the other tablespoon in the  bottom of a glass baking pan. Put the mushrooms in the oven for 9 minutes.

Put the spinach and the artichokes in a 2 qt saucepan. Bring them to medium-low heat, and then add 1/ 2 cup of the cheese. Add the milk, nutmeg, and bread crumbs and stir until well mixed. Be careful not to dry it out – use more milk if necessary. 

Take the mushrooms out of the oven and let them cool. Add the artichoke/spinach goodness to the top. Top that with the remaining cheese. Return to the oven for 5-7 minutes (or until you can’t stand it any longer.)

ENJOY!

* Trader Joe’s has great artichoke hearts that are frozen, and they’re cheap.

**Charlie gave us a fresh nutmeg and we grate that every time we need nutmeg. It’s much better than from the spice jar!
