Melt Away Recipes #1 - FILLED MUSHROOMS

Personal Note from Ilza

"To be on a dieet does not mean you cannot eat awesome meals."

I love mushrooms and this recipe is a wonder no matter what (Healthy) too 


  • 24 oz of large button mushrooms, wiped with a damp paper towel to clean
  • 8 oz cream cheese at room temperature
  • 4 whole green onions, chopped fine
  • 1 soup spoon of minced garlic
  • a little sea salt
  • 1 soup spoon of pesto
  • 2-3 Tablespoons of butter
  • shredded parmesan cheese (optional)


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  • Remove stems from mushrooms, and cut the tough part of the stem off and discard. Chop the rest of the stems up into small pieces.
  • Melt butter in large skillet over medium heat and place the whole stemless mushrooms in the melted butter and brown for a few minutes on each side then place in baking dish or in rimmed baking sheet.
  • In the same skillet add garlic, chopped stems, about 1/2 of the green onions. There should still be plenty of butter to sautee this mixture, but if not add a tad more. Add a little sea salt (1/2 teaspoon?) Let this brown, and turn heat down to medium/low.
  • Cut cream cheese into small chunks and add that with the pesto to the skillet. Let mixture melt together and stir well. (cream cheese doesn’t melt completely, it will soften a lot and let you mix the ingredients in.)
  • Take a small amount and spoon into each mushroom cap, then optional top with a little parmesan cheese. Sprinkle leftover green onions on top, then put in your hot oven for 15 minutes or until cheese is melted or starting to brown a bit.
  • topped with parmesan
