I am always looking for something to take to parties thrown by my husband’s co-workers. I am tired of the same old RO*TEL dip – especially if we do not coordinate and several of us bring it.
I found this recipe today for savory stuffed mushrooms and it sounds delicious! For this recipe, you will need 2 pounds of fresh, large mushrooms, Italian salad dressing, sour cream, cream cheese, blue cheese, green onions, chili sauce, lemon juice, Worcestershire Sauce, 1 (4.5-ounce) can Shrimp, and Fresh Parsley Sprigs.
Clean the mushrooms and cut all the stems off. Spread out the mushrooms in a shallow casserole dish and pour 1 cup of Italian salad dressing over them. Return the mushrooms to the refrigerator to marinate for at least three hours, although you can marinate them overnight if desired.
Open your 4.5 ounce can of shrimp, rinse, and then drain it. Finely chop up the shrimp. In a medium bowl with a lid, combine 1/4 cup of sour cream, one 3 ounce package of cream cheese, 1/3 cup of crumbled blue cheese, 1 tablespoon of chopped green onions, 2 tablespoons of chili sauce, 1 tablespoon of lemon juice, the can of chopped shrimp, and 1/2 teaspoon of Worcestershire sauce. Mix well then cover and store this in the refrigerator while your mushrooms are marinating.
When you are ready to serve the mushrooms, drain off the excess Italian salad dressing by placing the mushrooms on a shallow tray lined with paper towels. Fill each mushroom with the cheese and shrimp mixture. Garnish with a sprig of fresh parsley after it is filled. You can serve these immediately or refrigerate for up to 2 hours. Be sure to have some cocktail toothpicks so the mushrooms are easy to pick up. This recipe makes 24 appetizers, but if you need more, doubles the recipe.
